Condi for VP??

America’s first black female secretary of state is quietly positioning herself to be the top choice of the eventual Republican presidential nominee, ready to deliver bona fide foreign-policy credentials lacking among the candidates. The 56-year-old has recently raised her profile, releasing her memoir in November and embarking on a monthlong book tour.

After 2 1/2 years as a professor at Stanford, Miss Rice is reportedly getting “antsy” to get back into the political game. “She’s ready to go,” said one top source.

Ready indeed. She still rises at 5:30 a.m. and runs through a vigorous P90X workout. (Her guns are now a match for those of first lady Michelle Obama.) Sure, she’s been playing a lot of golf, and no doubt banging on the piano (sometimes with cellist Yo-Yo Ma), but she’s clearly ready for more.

Her addition to the ticket, which wouldn’t come until late next summer, would dramatically change the dynamics of the 2012 election. As a black woman - her family has roots in the Deep South stretching back to before Civil War era, and worked as sharecroppers after emancipation - she would mute Democrats’ charges of racism among conservatives, especially tea party members. And her sex would likely prompt moderate women to take a serious look at the Republican ticket. More here:

Ok, the thing that prompted this blog post was the sentence containing "she would mute Democrats’ charges of racism among conservatives, especially tea party members."  

Um, speaking for myself, I couldn't care less what names idiot-libs call me.  They like to call conservatives racists and morons etc ... but really, who cares anymore.  Just sounds like the morose bleating of sheep to me.  They've done it for so long it has become tiresome and weak.

As for my thoughts on Condoleeza Rice, I used to think she was awesome ... until I heard some liberal expressions come out of her.  Of course, she always does it in a thoughtful manner which sometimes puts me off guard ... but I always come to my senses eventually.  Anyway, I'll keep an open mind on her ... but she has something to prove before I'll give my support.  For example, I need to hear her say things like:


 Is that too much to ask?  Or am I a a racist?  Seriously, ask me if I care about ... wait, I see a sandwich, brb.
