Forget Condi Veep Rumors (For Now), Let's Have Some Condi Commish Rumors!

(PSP Flashback to 08-16-2012.)

I have no problem with Jonathan Capehart at the Washington Post. OK, not usually. But his thing about Condi coming to rescue the NFL is just... daffy. It's a weird and bad piece of writing which appears to be more proof than a lot of Post writers are flying solo, without editors.

See, the big problem is that Capehart is talking about Condoleezza Rice and football, but he's also writing about the NFL's doldrums and the unsavory notoriety of Ray Rice. We're thrown a helpful "No relation to Condi" aside (!!!LOL!!!), but that doesn't keep phrase like this, published below a huge picture of Condi, from being disconcerting:

the depths of Rice’s depravity

Yow, Condi! Oops, I mean Ray, whatever.

But how about Condi? Let's talk about her qualifications for becoming NFL commissioner and saving the sport for all mankind:

Rice really loves football, especially because of its similarities to military strategy.

Well, dang, since you put it THAT way, why not Condi? What are you waiting for? DRAFT THAT CONDI.

Let's not forget that Condi was "briefly" engaged to former NFL player Rick Upchurch.

Is that a coat or a cape over her shoulder? And what an action shot with the fabric flipping up into the air! It's like she just landed.

Condi and football deserve one another.

I'm sorry, those are *not* the earings to wear with that outfit. They're actually pissing me off.
