Earlier this week, President Sammy Stammerson opened up a big ol' can of worms when he lied to everyone's faces about when he got the news about Iran and when he built his World War III bunker.

The White House has had a couple of days to deal with the fallout of Bush's worst attempt at lying since avoiding the draft. Heck, they even tried a strategy of admitting that he indeed lied. And that brings us to today, where Dana Perino looks at her watch before her press conference and mutters to herself: "This is really gonna suck big time." Still, she towed the line and put the firewall firmly, albeit laughably, in place:
QUESTION: But the president said, quote, He didn’t tell me what the information was. But you’re now saying he was told that Iran may have halted its nuclear weapons program and also that there may be a new assessment, right?

PERINO: Right, but he doesn’t — he didn’t get any of the details of what — what the information was, in terms of what the actual raw intelligence was.

QUESTION: But he didn’t say details. he just said, He didn’t tell me what the…

PERINO: OK, look. I can see where you could see that the president could have been more precise in that language. But the president was being truthful.
It would be one thing if she just said that and we all just roll our eyes and call bullshit. It would be another thing entirely if Ed Henry recalled that Seymour Hersh learned of Bush briefing Prime Minister Olmert on this very NIE report in Annapolis, MD.
QUESTION: Did he brief Prime Minister Olmert? And how could he brief Olmert on Monday about a report that he found out about on Wednesday? Can you…

PERINO: I don’t — I will check. I mean, it’s possible that he knew that there was information coming; the intelligence community was checking it out…
Game. Set. Match.

Lying sacks of shit.
