Our poor power to add or detract

Christ, what WON'T Secretary of State Rice do for her pretend husband George?

Recently, she's compared those that wish to withdraw from Iraq to those who didn't have the guts to see the Civil War to its conclusion.

Hold on, I thought Iraq was NOT in the midst of a civil war???

Oh well, if Rice wants to compare the Iraqi morass to the clear moral obligation to free millions of brutally enslaved Americans with no human rights or priviledges, it's up to her.

Clearly being a black woman descended from U.S. slaves is no impediment to this comparison for her. So who am I to say it is disrespectful to that cause for which so many men gave the last full measure of devotion?

It's okay, Condi. When it comes down to doing your job, I find that a sense of history, not to mention common decency, really just gets in the way.

Condi has proven that a black woman can sell out just as badly a white man.


Now THAT'S equality!
