I’d like to publicly congratulate the Bush Administration for taking the moral high road during the recent confirmation hearings of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Not once did they mention the irony of the first black woman to be nominated to such a high office being opposed by two white men — one a former Ku Klux Klan leader, the other a man who left a woman to drown in his car in a desperate attempt to avoid responsibility and save his political career.
But that’s right. The Democrats are the party that supports women and minorities. Unless, of course, they’re uppity enough to be conservative.
I guess them poor broads and darkies just can’t be trusted to know their place in society. Good thing we have good, upstanding, decent white men like Robert Byrd and Ted Kennedy to remind them just who owns them.
