The most dangerous person to ever sit in the National Security Advisor chair is up for promotion. And she gave her usual smile-and-lie performance before the senate in her confirmation hearing. This time, she even lied about her lies.
But Condi has nothing to fear. She's certain to be confirmed. "Democratic" Senator Diane Feinstein even said, "she would make a fine secretary of state."
It fell once again to Feintein's fellow Californian Barbara Boxer, who really should be on the short list for 2008, to stand up for truth, justice, and the American way of being truthful and just. Boxer called Rice on her lies about Iraq and WMDs. Condi responded, "I really hope that you will refrain from impugning my integrity." Boxer shot back: "I'm not. I'm just quoting what you said."
