Lizz Winstead's group, Wake Up World with Hope & Davis, a comedy newscast similar to The Daily Show has a new newsbreak video out that could either be a simple slip of the tongue or a very scary peek into the real souls of the Bush administration.

Earlier this week at the press briefing, Dana Perino was asked about the official White House stand towards China's brutality in Tibet, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was visiting with the exiled Tibetan leader the Dalai Lama at the same time that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met with Chinese leaders to urge them to speak to the Dalai Lama. Meanwhile, rioters raged through Lhasa, and Tibetans are claiming more than 130 dead.

Maybe all of those things rocketing through that perky little brain of hers yielded some confusion. Because, while Rice is supposed to be working her way to a peaceful accord, Perino claimed the exact opposite.

Q China sent more troops into Tibet to crack down on the demonstrators. The United States have any reaction to that?

MS. PERINO: I hadn't heard about that development. What I can tell you is that last night Secretary Rice spoke to the Chinese Foreign Minister to very directly reiterate our views and concerns about the situation and told the Chinese that we would urge restraint in dealing with protestors, to refrain from non-violence and then Secretary Rice informed the President this morning of that conversation.
