I can't believe I'm about to defend Condoleezza Rice. I think she's a puppet and not terribly bright. Additionally, until now, I thought Barbara Boxer was great. But then she said this:
Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., told Rice during a testy Senate hearing on Thursday that without an immediate family Rice will pay no personal price for the Bush administration policy in Iraq.
You bitch. You might not think you pay a personal price but any time your thoughts are being used, you're paying a price. Those thoughts could be used for finding a way to pay for universal health care, better education or landing people on the moon for all I care--that's just really insulting, even for a bleeding heart liberal like me.
