I'm sorry, she's still a liar

Colbert I. King a columnist I usually respect takes exception to Barbara Boxer's attack on Condi Rice and completely misses the point. In Why the Crass Remarks About Rice? he wonders why Boxer said
"I personally believe -- this is my personal view -- that your loyalty to the mission you were given, to sell the war, overwhelmed your respect for the truth." Loyalty to the mission you were given, to sell the war.
His point being that Rice truly believed in the cause and was not just a parrot. I'm sorry but it doesn't really matter if she is firmly assimilated into the Borg Hive of this administration, she still lied and mislead the American people.

A "woman of color":
Dorothy Height, chair and president emerita of the National Council of Negro Women, who wrote in a letter to The Post this week: "Despite the challenges she will face, Ms. Rice's appointment is a time for women of color to smile."
I'm sorry but "women of color" should be hanging their heads in shame that the first of their kind to reach such a pinnacle of power is an incompetent misguided liar. Any attempt by the black community to defend her qualifies as racism.
Mr. Colbert objected to her caricature as a parrot. That's all there is in the Bush administration's hive.

Colbert King went off the deep end on that one. FWIW, I vented about this today on my blog as well.

Cheers.

Condoleezza Rice is whiter than I'll ever be and I'm white. (Should we start calling her "White Rice"?)

This is what Al Sharpton said about Rice on Saturday: "Condoleezza is my color, but Boxer is my kind!"
