"I'll Take Things I Don't Know About American History For A Thousand, Alex"

Who could make me miss Scotty McLiar and Tony Snowjob?

Bobo's latest press secetary, Dana "Chicken of the Sea" Perino, that's who.

Appearing on National Public Radio's quiz show, "Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me," this weekend, Perino admitted a story she'd previously only shared in private: When a reporter asked her a question during a White House briefing in which he referred to the Cuban Missile Crisis -- she didn't know what it was.

"I was panicked a bit because I really don't know about . . . the Cuban Missile Crisis," said Perino, who at 35 was born about a decade after the 1962 U.S.-Soviet nuclear showdown. "It had to do with Cuba and missiles, I'm pretty sure."

Under further questioning, it was learned that Perino remembered the Alamo but had forgotten the Maine. She also recalled the Spirit of St Louis as a short-lived ABC sitcom starring Gavin McLeod.
