For Condi Rice it’s Time for Therapy, Shoe Shopping

Poor Condoleeza Rice, she’s had one brutal week. First the Saudis steal her chance to kick start Palestinian Israeli peace. Having to talk to Israeli Prime Minister Olmert and Palestinian President Abbas (when there was little to say) absolutely sucked. Then she had to sashay over to Mecca to find why the King tampered with Bush’s divide and conquer strategy.

After a brief “spirit lifting” smackdown of a Russian general, Condi had to don a smiling face while painting Britian and Denmark’s troop reductions in Iraq as positive developments. The last time Ms. Rice was similarly stressed occurred during Hurricane Katrina. Rather than help President Bush field the myriad of internation aid offers, she went to New York for some badly needed shoe shopping. It’s time again to pull out the plastic as those high minded heels seem to be wearing down…
