Dana “Pig Missile” Perino — Doesn’t Want To Be The Next Scott McClellan

Emptywheel notes that Dana’s a bit touchy these days behind the podium, worried that if she’s saying one thing and "anonymous sources" are saying another about the destruction of the torture tapes, she looks like a bit of a toady:

Of course, Dana’s fighting a losing battle, since several of the journalists know that someone in the White House was floating the Harriet Miers story, and the more Dana pretends that those people weren’t floating the story, the more it will erode her own credibility.

At least, that’s the way it should work. Those journalists who got the false Harriet Miers story should expose their source–who was, after all, misleading the journalists–and illustrate the degree to which this Administration abuses jouanlistic rules to sow lies. That’s the way it should work. But it probably won’t.

No, it won’t.

But it’s always fun to watch her pitch a hissy fit.
