Condoleezza Rice is an idiot—and so are the “conservatives” who support her
I have excoriated the worthless, self-adoring Condoleezza Rice many times, but what Diana West has to say about her is more incisive than anything I’ve written. Both West and I focus on Rice’s constant put-downs of America, but West shows how those put-downs are central to Rice’s understanding of the world, determining all her policies.
Here is part of it:
The bottom line is that Condoleezza Rice looks at both the United State and the world through a very murky prism of race, seeing in the segregated South she was born in not only the template for struggle everywhere, but also the actors in struggle everywhere. This shockingly parochial view sharply limits her understanding of war and peace at home and abroad. Football Commissioner, fine. Nominee for Vice President, disastrous.Meanwhile, Bill S., who sent the Diana West link, writes:
Drudge has a poll running asking “Condi for Veep?” The supposedly right wing constituency of the Drudge Report voted favorably something like 60/30 percent! Is ANYONE paying attention?We’re living in a mad house. Think of the constantly roiling passions of conservatives, their fear and loathing of anti-American liberals, their zealous desire to stop and defeat liberalism and return to “conservative” and patriotic leadership. And whom do they support for vice president? An anti-American liberal. These legions of bozos are not even faintly aware that she is an anti-American liberal. With the same acuity, Republican primary voters chose McCain in 2008 under the impression that he was a conservative. Why did they think he was a conservative? Because he was a war hero. Is it even worth paying attention to American politics?
