PSP: Your Leader in Condi Casting Analysis

Last Monday in my Condi Roundup on Wonkette:

Other fun facts about Condi-to-be Thandie? She played Sally Hemmings to Nick Nolte's Thomas Jefferson, making her the first person to play both the secretary of state and the secretary of state's girlfriend!

Today in Al Kamen's column:

Surely this is the only time anyone has played the roles of both secretary of state and the mistress of the secretary of state, which was Jefferson's job in Paris before he became president.

EDIT: Also, wait a minute, Jefferson's job was what? Where?

UPDATE: Al Kamen issued a sort-of correction to what may have been the most poorly constructed sentence ever to appear in the Post:

Speaking of the Founding Fathers and such, we would like to thank so many Loop Fans, colleagues and general readers for pointing out that, contrary to Friday's column, Thomas Jefferson was of course secretary of state here in the nation's capital, not in Paris.

Kamen should have thanked you. I certainly do whenever I steal from your blog.

Jefferson's job in Paris was to be the mistress of the secretary of state?

I know, weird, huh?

I think he meant Jefferson's job was to play the roles of both secretary of state and the mistress of the secretary of state.

Ooooh - I'd love to see a sparkleimage of condi as her own mistress

Why was the secretary of state based in Paris? I bet Condi wishes it was like that (thinking of the shopping!) and not boring old Foggy Bottom.
