No to Veep Condi

Condoleeza Rice is an extremely intelligent woman with an impressive academic background. This however, is not enough to qualify her for Vice President.

Condi's academic expertise was supposed to be Sovietology, the now seemingly antiquated field concentrated on the ins-and-outs of the USSR, including all the ridiculous political gibberish and maneuvering that went on in high political circles. At the time of Rice's appointment to NSA, the promotional photos showed a Dr. Rice engrossed in a Russian newspaper, thereby demonstrating her mastery of the Russian language.

She had one frakking skill, and look how well things have turned out with the very Soviet-reminiscent Putin. How's our favorite Kremlinologist been doing?

Not so well.

This is to say nothing, of course, about all the baggage she carries from the Bush administration.

What the heck are people thinking putting Condi on the Veep list?

Identity politics, that's what they're thinking. It's a shame she go so State Departmentalized.

What is it with administrations in their last days in office going, "I know! I'll solve the Israel/Palestine problem!"

I prefer "frell" from Farscape.

"Frell" is good, but more people know BSG than Farscape. And as good as Farscape was, BSG is better.

I've been watching a lot of Scrubs reruns lately, so it's only a matter of time until I start saying "Frick on a stick!"

Probably best to avoid turning into Blonde Doctor. I have trouble with BG - everyone's always angry.
