Good morning Washington.
MR. SAGAL: Alright, well. Dana, so — and we know that you, unlike Mr. Rove, are still employed at the White House — and we ask you this: Is Barney, in fact a lump?
MS. PERINO: I wouldn’t call him a lump. Of course, you’re right, Karl is on his way out the door. Look, Barney’s kind of standoffish, but heâ€™s got personality. He’s got a little bit of sass. You know, I don’t think — he doesn’t let people get too close to him.
MR. SAGAL: What does Barney think about Rove?
MS. PERINO: Well, I did see one thing last week when we were down in Texas. In fact it was actually more Ms. Beasley. They alternated from wanting to be petted by him to growling at him. So it was maybe a love/hate relationship.
KYRIE Oâ€™CONNOR: So Karl didn’t have to, like, carry the pooper-scooper or anything?
MS. PERINO: No, that job is reserved for other people. Like me.
MR. SAGAL: Really?
MS. PERINO: Well, I do deal with — I deal with the press a lot.
Touche Dana. Touche
