I've noticed some online wags are comparing Jen Psaki of the White House to Peppermint Patty of the Peanuts cartoon strip. I have to admit that there is a passing resemblance, but I think that the comparison is unfair. To Peppermint Patty. I remember Patty fondly as an honest, thoughtful friend of Charlie Brown. Whereas, Psaki is a lying, deceitful caricature of a political spokesperson.
