Too bad she's not handicapped, too. That'd sew it up.

This is hilarious. So now comes word that Condi Rice is quietly but persuasively lobbying to join the McCain ticket. And while McCain himself is noncommittal (at least for public consumption), some GOP strategists are wetting their impeccably creased pants at the idea. Of course, Condi-as-v.p. would kill two bias-birds with one stone, inasmuch as she addresses both of the advantages the Dems now enjoy in this season of endlessly segmented identity politics.

Oh please, oh please, just make it stop....

Oh please is right. IMHO, Colin Powell should be running for president on the GOP ticket. He'd be a great president, and he would win, too. Instead, look at the contestants we have to choose form. And now Condi too? Spare us!

Say what you will, I think it's a good ticket, Steve, and a potentially winning one. And I applaud that prospect. The last thing we need is either of what the Democraps have to offer us.

Nah, handicapped she is not, at least not in the sense that would help here. But it could still get better if it turned out that she had a Jewish great-grandmother and a half-Muslim father.

Wait... On the second thought, maybe not. (This IS GOP, after all.)

Colin Powell turned in his credibility by publicly offering intelligence information he knew to be (to put it kindly) flawed in the rush to war in Iraq. He lost a lot of respect, which he has only begun to repair by acknowledging his regret at having "gotten with the program." Perhaps Condi will experience the same kind of epiphany one day, but I doubt it will happen before she leaves her position in this administration.

If Mccain would live by the ideals he promises to bring to the office, I think he's be a pretty good president... for anyone who didn't value their individual rights, wants the government run from a military mentality, and isn't a woman.

Given the performance of the current administration, I doubt that there's much chance we'll be seeing another Republican in the White House for awhile. Now if only the Democrats could actually *learn* from what has been going on... And if grasshoppers carried .45's... :-)

As soon as Tiger Woods (Black/Asian/White/Indian) turns 35 - watch out!

His party won't matter.
