No one in the Bush administration is more mistakenly respected than the appalling Condoleezza Rice — a liar, a stooge and an incompetent. The other day she reaffirmed her lack of qualification for statecraft by shrugging off the deaths of tens of thousands of people: "I am proud by the decision of this administration to overthrow Saddam Hussein." And here’s how she spends her weekend. From a Pentagon press release:

BETHESDA, Md., July 5, 2008 – Instead of participating in rounds of Gulf diplomacy, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spent part of the day here observing a round of golf. …

“I love coming out to this tournament, and I love the fact that it is doing so much to honor our men and women in uniform,” Rice said. “It’s really a great way to remind ourselves that the people of America really appreciate what our troops do.”

Let them eat cucumber sandwiches. See you in the Hague, Condi!
