Ah, cut her a little slack. She doesn't make the lies, she just repeats them. That's her job. Not a great job, but it pays well.

Q: Why does time pass so quickly in Italy?
A: Because everytime you look a dago's by.

Holy smoke you be sayin' dere girl? Fun to sing along to. A bit tongue twisty in the lyrics which makes it that much better. I like it.

Creative rhyming, but the parody distorts Dana Perino more than she distorts information coming out of the White House.
