This is my fifth Rule 5. I usually explain what a Rule 5 post is, right up front, but I think it is time to move all that below the photos of my Rule 5 girl-next-door insider, Dana Perino. Enjoy, and please look for my list of friends sharing their Rule 5 posts this weekend, visit and enjoy. That list will be continually updated.
Dana Perino took over the job as Press Secretary for President George W. Bush in September 2007 when Tony Snow left the position. The photo above was taken on the same trip to Iraq when a man in the audience at an Iraqi press conference threw his shoes at Bush. The President artfully ducked the flying size 10s but Dana received a black eye in the chaos. She is only the second female Press Secretary in the history of the White House.
Dana grew up in Denver, Colorado but was born in Wyoming. She still loves wearing jeans and sweat shirts, a throw-back from her childhood, helping her grandfather herd cattle on his 12,0000 acre Wyoming ranch.
Dana has a “moment” with a 12-year-old Hungarian Vizsla, named Henry, at the “Fashion for Paws” fundraiser.
One more of the guys for the girls.
Rule 5 posts have to do with pretty girls or beautiful women – whichever you prefer. RS McCain at The Other McCain says I will undoubtedly get a million hits if I join Rule 5′ers, and mix it up a little bit with Rules 1, 2, 3, and 4, because only a few can handle all politics, all the time.
This is how Stacy McCain explains mixing “loveliness” with politics:
Everybody loves a pretty girl – It’s not just guys who enjoy staring at pictures of hotties. If you’ve ever picked up Cosmo or Glamour, you realize that chicks enjoy looking at pretty girls, too. Maybe it’s the vicious catty she-thinks-she’s-all-that factor, or the schadenfreude of watching a human trainwreck like Britney Spears, but no one can argue that celebrity babes generate traffic.
You see, readers, blog “traffic” is important. And since you are reading this, you are not a part of the problem. I hope you enjoy my fourth Rule 5, and if this isn’t your cup of tea, just browse through my homepage for 24 articles, some that may get your attention.
Visit my friends for more Rule 5’s. We all post at different times over the weekend, so if the link below isn’t current, just browse the homepage. If you have a Rule 5 and I’ve missed it, let me know and I’ll link below.
