I’ve seen a lot of swooning over Condi Rice tonight.
Have we forgotten her prominent role in inciting a war that killed thousands of Americans needlessly, and upwards of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis? (And we’ve since learned that we knowingly fired on civilians, thanks to Wikileaks.) What about her decision to go see Spamelot and buy shoes in New York City as Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans? It’s also important to remember that she helped George Bush take a massive eight year dump on the Constitution.
I respect her intelligence, but that intelligence means she knew exactly what she was doing when she participated in the lies about the weapons of mass destruction, and it doesn’t look like she ever lost any sleep over the deaths she helped cause, or the consequences of the war that we’re still experiencing in this country today.
So, why the sudden Condi love fest?
