Condoleezza Rice Can Bounce A Quarter Off Her Ass 38489
Did you hear? WaPo correspondent Glenn Kessler has penned a bio on his sort-of friend, Condoleezza Rice. And unlike the smear job on Katie Couric, this book casts Rice in a predominantly flattering light.
Highlights include the part where a “close friend” (Coit Blacker) recollects throwing loose change at Condi’s behind to confirm his postulation that “it would bounce right off like a rocket,”* and this bizarre anecdote about the Secretary of State going postal on a jewelry store clerk who had the nerve to show her costume pieces instead of 24-carat bling.
“Let’s get one thing straight,” [the friend] recalls [Rice] saying. “You are behind the counter because you have to work for minimum wage. I’m on this side asking to see the good jewelry because I make considerably more.”
Yep, that’s exactly the sort of collective cool we’ve come to expect from the person charged with the task of overseeing the United States’ foreign relations and overhauling the country’s entire diplomatic infrastructure.
