Rice got Peppered

Condi went to Capital Hill yesterday where Demarcate and Republican senators alike took turns grilling the Secretary of State. Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., told Rice...

"I don't see, Madame Secretary, how things are getting better. I think things are getting worse. I think they're getting worse in Iraq. I think they're getting worse in Iran."

Sen. Lincoln Chafee, R-R.I., hammered her on the Hamas victory in Palestinian legislative elections last month.

"Now we have a very, very disastrous situation of a terrorist organization winning elections."

Even though the Bush administration, spearheaded by Rice, demanded these elections take place, Condi said...

"I don't think the United States of America is responsible for the election of Hamas. No I don't."

But John Kerry had the most interesting question. He asked, simply...

"Have you ever been involved in leaking classified information or authorized the leak of such information to the press?"

Condi did not answer the question. Instead, she threw out a Ho! Ha ha! Guard! Turn! Perry! Dodge! Spin! . What are you hiding Madame Secretary?

Standing in a sunny Rose Garden on June 24, 2002, surrounded by his top foreign policy advisers, President Bush issued a clarion call for resolving the deadly Israeli-Palestinian conflict: "I call on the Palestinian people to elect new leaders, leaders not compromised by terror."

Well, Hamas is what he got. Bush and Condi look like the morons to me.

She reminds me a lot of Imelda Marcos and the million pairs of shoes she had. Stepping on others to get what she wants. Well, this time she got more than she bargined for.

And I love Elmo's new look. I wonder, will he be issuing his own Fahtwa soon? I can only imagine what he would have to say. Keep it up bro, this stuff is great!!!

Bush called for an election, he did not endorse Hamas.

Why not blame Bush for my failing stocks?

Thanks Lance!

Gist...tell me about it. The bitch don't play.

Cabe. I agree he did not want Hamas elected. It's just scary as shit they didn't see it coming.

When did it become the government's job to forsee things?

That's like expecting a cruise ship to have a captain. It works fine in theory, but has anyone ever actually seen a cruise ship captain?

Condi is a framer of policy.

Our credibility has gone to nil in the world thanks to that policy.

And the lies!

::shaking head::

The lies.

Chafee would be had he said that, which he didn't. But you already know that.

Anyway, slightly OT, but Condi reminds me personally of every uninspired, moderately competent, less-than-impressive middle management boss I've ever had who took all the ugliness and hate they had heaped upon them by other black folks for alleged "high yellerness," and instead of unhealthily internalizing it or learning to make peace with it, viciously externalized it and made everyone scared of them.
