BREAKING: Hurling Insults at Condoleezza Rice is What Democracy is All About

You know, every once in a while I start to feel guilty about my endless fun-pokery (fun-buggery?) of La Rice. Thank goodness that she herself comes to my rescue to placate my tortured soul:
Speaking from a factory run by UK defence contractor BAE Systems this morning, Ms Rice said she was "delighted" to be visiting an area of the UK outside London, and said she was enjoying her trip, despite the protests.

She was not surprised at the strength of feeling about her visit, saying: "People have strong views, and I have no problem with people expressing those views. But I'm delighted to accept the opportunity to be here, and people have been very welcoming."
Here's a link to the article. And furthermore, this morning on the news, Condipal newscaster Barbara Harrison reported that Dr. Princess said the naysayers were "what democracy is all about."

Awesome! I feel so much better now. So all you new readers sent here from Wonkette and elsewhere, welcome to Princess Sparkle Pony, the most democracylicious blog on the web!

Tons of pictures were taken... I'll do a roundup this afternoon!

Condi's used to being insulated from protesters in America because BubbleBoy insists on it.
You'd think after traveling to so many countries she'd notice an anti American trend, and maybe mention it to Bush.
I doubt it's occurred to her that Bush might be globally unpopular because he's a dumb ass warmonger/profiteer.

Uhm, I hate to be the one to point it out, but Condie ain't no 10.

To all you new readers, I always let the Princess do my heavy lifting where Condi is concerned. You just found a lovely, lovely blog.

Blue Gal, I agree, Princess Sparkle Pony is the blogworld's foremost Condathority.
Plus, she never asks us to tell her how pretty she looks or how smart she is.

When my big sister first discovered Miss Pony's blog, she stayed up almost all night reading the archives and howling with laughter, and she's not the blog reading type!
Now she's got half of Austin reading PSP.
