The empty-headed, totally-in-love-with-herself woman who wants to be president
Condi is a Dangerous Incompetent
Which further means that the historic discrimination against blacks in America—the result of the purely contingent fact that hundreds of years ago blacks were brought to America as slaves—puts America on the same moral level as the eternal, crushing, divinely ordained tyranny of Islam!
With her every inane comment, with her every self-adoring smile, Rice glorifies herself and devalues America.
But now guess what? At the very moment that the truth about this narcissistic anti-American secretary of state, who calls it “condescending” and “racist” to raise rational doubts about the inherently impossible, is finally starting to be spoken in the conservative mainstream, this news item appears:
Rice had always disclaimed interest in political office before, and I believed her. But now I think her ego inflation and vanity—so powerful that they have increased even as the disaster and idiocy of her policies has become more evident—have gone so far that she want to be, not just vice president, but president. Because being McCain’s VP would be an automatic step toward being the top contender for the presidential nomination in 2012.
Which takes the Peter Principle to awesome proportions. I mean, how many levels above her disastrous incompetence does Rice expected to be raised?
And answer is: self-love minus zero / no limit.
The practical question is, would McCain really want to marry himself to this central figure of the failed and despised administration he wants to replace? At first thought, it wouldn’t seem to make any sense. However, my feeling is that he will be wowed by her “star” qualities and see her as a brilliant choice, complementing himself in all kinds of ways.
But what about the conservatives? And what about defenders of Israel? How should they respond to the Rice VP idea? Ironically, as I was in the middle of drafting this entry, this e-mail came in from Jed W., making many of the same points I had just written down:
I’m one of those conservatives who is literally repelled by McCain but have been resolved to voting for him in light of the alternative(s) The idea of the Clinton crime family (Mark Levin’s term) returning to steal the rest of the White House china is an injustice of cosmic proportions. As for Obama, well, he’s a disaster. However, I just read that that anti-American, anti-Israel mediocrity who serves as Bush’s Secretary State may get the VP nod.

Condi Rice seems like a little girl acting the part of Secretary of State in a 7th grade school play. The whole thing would be funny if not so tragic. I’m beginning to think our country suffers actual dementia in its leadership. It sometimes seems that Bush, Rice and McCain (to name a few of many) cannot put a string of logical thoughts together. Perhaps the use of psychoactive medicines is rampart—Valium, Prosac etc. How else can one explain what’s going on?David B. writes:
I sent you the email below predicting McCain would select Rice as his running mate (a “three-fer”)on February 21. I really think McCain will go as far left as he can this fall.LA writes:

In the event, we can always hope for a miracle, say, that she undergoes a metamorphosis and wakes up not as a cockroach but as the next best thing—an old white guy.
