Diplomacy, Bush/Rice Style

Condoleezza Rice has said some pretty classless things, but this weekend she reached a new low in representing this country, referring to Moqtada al-Sadr and his threat to end the cease fire that has been in place for some seven months now.
"I know he's sitting in Iran. I guess it's all-out war for anybody but him. I guess that's the message; his followers can go to their deaths and he's in Iran."

And just where is the commander-in-chief of our armed forces, whose "followers can go to their deaths"? And where is she, when she isn't sneaking into a war zone unnanounced and accompanied by hordes of armed guards?

If you are going to goad your opponent with charges of cowardice, it is best not to be a chicken hawk yourself, and to be representing another chicken hawk when you do it. She is a coward, and a poltroon.

How can we let classless boors like this represent us?

    When we--or rather, our alleged and elected leaders--take impeachment "off the table" H\how can we NOT have "classless boors like this" representing us?

    I don't know if impeachment is the answer, but they (Pelosi, et al) should definitely NOT have said what they did. That gives open license to asct as you want to. Not that that has stopped Bush anyway.

    And with all due respect to Ms. Rice, she was picked as SecState because of loyalty to Bush, not for any dplomatic credentials. I think she really should go back to academia where she belongs...
