The Rice Confirmation

After a delay caused by Congressional Democrats, Condoleezza Rice will be confirmed as Secretary of State this week. What do you think?

  • “Great. Now the public face of U.S. diplomacy is that of a pissed-off terrier.”

    Ted Ramos –
    Upholsterer

  • “Ms. Rice should make an ideal Secretary of State. She's already proved to the U.S. that she can evade questions in front of a Congressional panel.”

    Michael Shaw –
    Systems Analyst

  • “I say, why not give Condi a shot as Secretary of State? It might help her self-esteem and encourage her to start taking an interest in her appearance.”

    Colleen Burns –
    Appraiser

  • “The implications are profound. She's paved the way for a black female to perform with the Capitol Steps.”

    Peter Swain –
    Unemployed

  • “So she had to explain why she's the best candidate for the job? Big deal. I had to do that last week when I applied at Panda Express.”

    Gregory Gordon –
    Cashier

  • “Twenty years ago, I never would've believed that we'd have a black, female Secretary of State, much less one who was a conservative warmonger, too. We've come a long way.”
