Uncle George's Condi Rice Has Lost Her Goddamn Mind

Uncle Don's Condi Rice thinks that Agent Orange "may sound different than other presidents, but he believes in American values."

I believe that Cranky Condoleezza - who for 7 1/2 years was never seen to crack a smile, who was the National Security Advisor when Bush received the infamous Presidential Daily Brief containing the warning that "bin Laden determined to attack America again" in August 2001; who was a mediocre Secretary of State, at best; the same Condi who never mentioned that she was black or promoted the interests of black Americans while in power, and instead acted like an blackwashed, emotionless Terminatrix until she realized that she needed to get a damn job from some fool, somewhere, after Shrub left the White House - that DrCondoleezza Rice, Ph.D - has lost her goddamn mind, or she's on the take.
(So it's a run on sentence; bite me.)

This is the same woman who's had an oil tanker named after her, but we're supposed to believe that she was and is working in the best interests of American citizens, and not ExxonMobil shareholders. This is the woman whose Ph.D. thesis was an example of the worst fears that racists have about affirmative action, for its incomplete scholarship and overall mediocrity. (Yes, I've read it. Incomplete and mediocre. I can also tell you the fact that her father being an assistant dean of the University of Denver, where she received both her B.A. and Ph.D., didn't hurt her chances of academic success one bit, to say the least). Her initiatives as both NSA and Secretary of State did not make America safer; indeed, it could be argued that the exact opposite occurred during her time in office. Condi has made a lucrative and successful career out of being a black Republican woman in a time and place where there were few others. Now that's what I consider a so-called "race hustler."

So today, she bleats out her support for Agent Orange, asserting that "while the language may be different, and we might talk about needing to deal with policy, I think you're going to see ... that Americans' interests in values are always linked."  She then goes on to absolve tRump for his obvious and dangerous incompetence with the excuse that "it's early days in this administration. Let's remember that."

Say what, now? He doesn't know what he's doing yet, so let's just humor him while he learns how to do his job? Whatever happened to "I know more than the generals?" "I'm a really smart person?" "I have all the best people?" Since when was the Presidency an on-the-job training program? 

Obviously, party loyalty comes before country for Condoleezza Rice. Excusing the stupidity, lack of transparency, ignorance, and questionable patriotism of Agent Orange and most of his administration (I'm still giving Sec. Mattis a pass, though McMasters has shit all over his reputation, and Kelly has turned into an obedient little blackshirt. Tillerson was, is, and always will be an oilman first, so at least there's no deception there.) is merely the newest low in a career built on opportunism, cronyism, self-deception, and bullshit. I wonder how much she charged the Tangerine Traitor for her conversion to Trumpism? At least now, Rice has made it plain that she is and always has been for sale.
