Quickie: The Headline Says It All

Condoleezza Rice likened to 7th century female Muslim wise woman!

EDIT: Oh, what the heck, it's a short article, so here's the whole thing:
Washington, Oct 20: US Under Secretary of State for Interfaith harmony, Karen Hughes, has likened Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice to Amara bin Al-Rehman, a wise women who lived at the time of Prophet Mohammed.

Addressing a gathering of Muslim diplomats and journalists at a State Department Iftar reception, Hughes said that Rice like Al-Rehman, was an extremely knowledgeable woman who shared her knowledge with many famous men of her time.

"Recently I was told a story from the time of the Prophet about a famous man who expressed a desire to seek knowledge. He was advised, by another man to join the assembly of a well-known woman jurist of the day named Amara bin Al-Rahman," the Daily Times quoted Karen as saying.

"She was described as a boundless ocean of knowledge and she shared her knowledge with a number of famous men which kind of reminds me of our boss Dr Condoleezza Rice when she shows up at a national security meeting and shares her boundless knowledge with all the men in the room," she said.
What library-level speech researcher came up with that one, I wonder? Because you know Texas soccer-mom Karen Hughes didn't.

Does anyone else find Karen to be one of the most disgusting people in government?

She is so matronly that they often give her the most dispicable talking points, but also, the stupidest (as is the case here).

"Secretary of State for Interfaith harmony"

Huh? that's her job title? You're kidding right? Does Dr Dobson know about this?


maybe this para looks more accurate:

"She was described as a boundless ocean of bullshit and she shared her bullshit with a number of famous flacks which kind of reminds me of our boss Dr Condoleezza Rice when she shows up at a national security meeting and shares her boundless bullshit with all the flacks in the room," she said."

But that would be unkind to Condi, who we all know is just in an abusive relationship with GW Laura & Karen a veritable menage a quad.


Someday, somebody, somewhere in the bowels of DC with pick up a dictionary and have a come to geebus moment and look up the word irony.

then their heads will make a little teeny tiny popping sound.

Isn't amara the town overtaken by Shiites today? Amazing coincidence or disturbing parallel that it is the lovely lady that Karen "Kick Ass" Hughes compares Condi al-leeza to!

"She was described as a boundless ocean of knowledge and she shared her knowledge with a number of famous men"

Well at least we can be pretty sure it wasn't 'carnal' knowledge in Condi's case! Why does that even make me feel better?

Karen Hughes quote from Wikipedia article:
""I think after September 11, the American people are valuing life more … and I think those are the kind of policies the American people can support, particularly at a time when we're facing an enemy, and really, the fundamental difference between us and the terror network we fight is that we value every life."

Karen "kick-ass" Hughes definitely works for me.

I prefer "Novelty Hands" Hughes myself.

I have to agree Novelty Hands though - Condi's foreign policy is straight out of the 7th century.
