To celebrate July 4th, Dana Perino recounted an experience she had when she, as George W. Bush’s press secretary, met a group of Navy SEALs:
… a couple of SEALs came over to ask me if I was the press secretary and if they could get a photograph with me. As their buddy got his camera ready, I decided to make a little small talk.
“What made you want to become a Navy SEAL – family tradition, sense of adventure, chance to see the world, physical challenge?
“Oh no, ma’am, chicks dig it,” he said.
I then asked the second SEAL, “When you are preparing to go…wherever it is that you may be going. Do you have to take a lot of language courses?”
“Oh no ma’am…we’re really not there to talk.”
