Yes, Condi Approved Waterboarding, but Don't Worry, She'll Never Get in Trouble for It

Condi's been strangely untouched by the whole torture scandal thingy. Oh, look, here's an article about how she encouraged its use when she was national security adviser. But it's OK, because nobody will seriously take her to task for it, and then she'll come out with her delightful book about her parents, go on Oprah, go on the Today Show, get profiled by Ladies Home Journal, and nobody will ever really ask her any serious questions about torture, the end.

And right there, for me, is the heart of this whole culture's sickness. We are damned, if not doomed.

I'm not so sure Oprah would invite her on her show.
Besides shoes, what would they talk about?

OMG, I puked into the back of my throat after reading that!

What better place for puking, Anon? Of course, projectile vomiting is a more forward activity.

But little Condi has always been so certain. It's that really icky thing that the only child can sometimes develop after being worshiped by her parents.

I once had a boss who was as simultaneously certain and empty headed as Condoleezza, another doted upon only child. It wasn't fun to work her her.
