Condoleezza Rice Changes Mind, Would Like To Be Vice President Now

Haha, hey, remember this? It was the day after the 2008 election, and Condoleezza Rice was crying and smiling at the same time, like a crazy person, about the wondrous miracle that had occurred with Barack Hussein Obama being elected president of these United States. Now? Dr. Rice, it would seem, has had herself a little change of heart. Who understands America’s place in this world, Condi? Is it Nobama? No. It is not Nobama, because he is a lamer who apologizes for Amercia.

“If America is going to rebuild its strength at home, rebuild its sense of who we are, it needs a leader that also understands how really exceptional the United States of America is, and is not afraid to lead on the basis of that exceptionalism,” Rice told about 300 donors. “The only thing that people dislike more than unilateral American leadership is no American leadership at all.”

Yes, Condi Rice has endorsed Mitt Romney. Mittens, tell all your Pawlentys and your … other ones? … anyway, all those whitebread dudes that it is time for them to fuck off; you got you a real prospect this time around — and she comes with dominatrix boots.

    Muammar Gaddafi would weep if he had lived through the lack of leadership to have seen this.

      1. Lionel[redacted]Esq

        This is what happens when you don't have the leadership to declare Mission Accomplished!

  2. chascates

    First she'll deal with Syria. Then Iran. Then North Korea. Then Venezuela. Then Cuba. Then . . .

    1. Blueb4sunrise

      Absotively. She even admitted she was an African American!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Goonemeritus

    Thank God, if she wins we can get back to nurturing world peace and global cooperation by bombing the shit out of everyone.

  4. Callyson

    “The only thing that people dislike more than unilateral American leadership is no American leadership at all.”

    Yeah, because the idea that the United States might go for a third option, and actually work *with* other nations, is preposterous…

    Bitch.

  5. bumfug

    Exceptional? As in the "Exceptional Olympics?" Like, "No, sweetie, not this one – you exceptional kids ride that short bus"?

  6. MissTaken

    understands how really exceptional the United States of America is, and is not afraid to lead on the basis of that exceptionalism

    You know what's really exceptional? Being able to read the words "Bin Ladin Determined To Strike In The US" and doing something other than just clearing Texas brush about it.

    1. comrad_darkness

      He was too busy writing a policy speech on crushing the science of stem cells. No joke.

  7. noodlesalad

    Sorry your boyfriend got blowed up, Condi. Libya and let Libya, ok? Haha, Love, O.

  8. freakishlywrong

    The…chemistry here..she looks like she could unhinge those teeth and take his stupid, hate-laughing head off. Plus..SHE'S FROM THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION. Ameriduh can NOT be ready for that yet, can it?

  9. hagajim

    She's automatically disqualified from public service – ever, because she worked for the buffoon before Barry.

  10. SayItWithWookies

    Oh pleeeease let her be Mittens' running mate — it would be wonderful to remind the American people of the galloping ignoramuses who used to run the country and who will all be slithering back into positions of power if Assbot gets elected.

    Oh, and fuck you, Condi — no leadership?! The Recovery Act, the Affordable Care Act, getting us out of your fuckin' mess in Iraq, overthrowing Qaddafi without getting us stuck there for a decade — just fuck you.

  11. ManchuCandidate

    It's (not) too bad Muamar Ghadaffi is dead or he would write some more embarrassing love poetry/songs about Condi.

    Condi my darling, you are my wargirl;
    When we're together I feel fine.
    Your smile is so lovely; your hair is so clean;
    You make me feel that killing the world is fine.

    Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi,
    Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi, C-O-N-D-I …
    I named a supertanker after you.

    Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi,
    (pause) Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi, Condi,
    Condi of mine!

  12. Not_So_Much

    No snark — if she did agree to prop up Mittens, I think it would be a major boost for his shitty campaign. The crazies could convince themselves to vote for a Blah chickenhawk in the #2 spot, since that wouldn't be too uppity of her.

    1. Negropolis

      Wait, who would she bring it that wasn't already voting, and you really think it would be more than the people that'd be turned off by the pick?

      McCain already tried this. I say if they want to try a "game change", again, be my fucking guest. lol

      1. Not_So_Much

        I have some retar…conservative friends that are openly fapping to this idea. They can't stand Bamz being blah, but don't seem to have the same issue with her. I think because she isn't a complete idiot, proven bloodthirsty for some sweetsweet war, and could claim some foreign policy cred.

        Plus, they probably think that if she was ok with touching W's penis, maybe she'll touch theirs too.

  13. Schmannnity

    What better proof of American Exceptionalism than the wit and wisdom of George W. Bush.

  14. edgydrifter

    Doktor Ricelove may not know that the world has moved on from the good old days when Amercia just told every non-Soviet country what to do because fuck you shut up, that's why.

  15. samsuncle

    If the US is so exceptional why are we headed towards third world status with regards to disparity in personal income, health care, education, quality of life, etc?

    1. Ruhe

      Because, as has been apparent for some time, when "they" say exceptional what they mean is that America and all good, God-fearing Americans are "excepted" from moral judgement. Our wondrous God-blessedness justifies all of our actions.

    2. sullivanst

      Because America's the #1 greatest best most awesomest country evah and always, but only when the Preznit boasts about it constantly. Admitting that other countries exist and maybe have views of their own makes us weak, because that's how fuckin' awesome we are.

      1. George Skullfry

        Because America's the #1 greatest best most awesomest country evah and always, but only when the Preznit boasts about it constantly and is white.

        Just a little clarification, there.

  16. Chichikovovich

    Rice? Condolezza Rice? Hmmm…. Oh, yes, I remember – Condolezza Rice! She was the National Security Advisor on whose watch 9-11 happened. And said "no one could have predicted" that the airlines into buildings tactic might be used, even though a memo to that effect had been sitting right there on her desk. That's absolutely the kind of competent counsel we need to steer our nation.

  17. mookwrthwilson

    Well it has been what? 3.5 years? since we've had a full fledged war criminal as Veep…

    1. SorosBot

      Aw, I miss Princess Sparkle Pony. (And weirdly, that's the second reference to Small Wonder I've seen today).

  18. Dashboard Buddha

    Every time I read the words "American Exceptionalism" I think, Decline and Fall: See Roman Empire

    1. Ruhe

      The Canadians are milling around on the banks of the Niagara. If that river freezes over we are screwed.

      1. Designer_Radio

        I read that they don't want to come because of our great per-capita indebtedness — could be a catching condition. But our land is fair game. That's why we borrow from China to build Nuke-Powered Aircraft-Landable Ball-Busters and parade our gun-toting, insane, Bloviating Ignoramuses around for anyone who cares to flip through the satellite teevee channels and wonder What The Fuck is WRONG with those people? Yeah, come and invade. We'll do a collective national underwear bombing of ourselves while giving you a bear hug, cuz we don' know no better. Or maybe we'll just all say, "WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG?! We were about to lose our Senate to the Republitard Tealiban Christhadis! You have a different plan, right? RIIIIIGHT???"

  19. Pseudonymously_Joe

    Actually, I'm pretty okay with "no American leadership at all" if it means fewer unilateral wars of aggression and maybe also a little less of a surveillance state.

    Let's let Britain have a go at it again, I say.

    1. Dashboard Buddha

      I know, right. Hey Condi…what's missing from the situation room picture of when OBL got capped. You!

  20. Guppy

    Remind the electorate of the Bush administration? What could possibly go wrong?

    Can we also look forward to Secretary of State Bolton in a Romney administration?

  21. johnnyzhivago

    Didn't she have something to do with that president who's name cannot be mentioned?? Shrub was it????

    Sarah Palin comes with dominatrix boots too and has more executive experience (2 1/2 years – not counting her time as PTA president).

  22. prommie

    Truly the most incompetent, most Dunning-Krugerfied, of the Bush crowd of incompetents.

    1. HippieEsq

      I humbly offer up Alberto Gonzalez for this superlative, but picking the worst of the Bush Cabinet is like picking the worse jelly bean flavor….

      1. prommie

        Well, you may be right there, call it a toss-up. Both of them, when they were finally forced to testify, came across as complete maroons.

        1. HippieEsq

          Consider this: Condoleeza Rice was invited back to Stanford, while Alberto Gonzalez went unemployed for a year and then joined a law firm no one ever heard of in Birmingham.

          Borderline unemployable Attorney General!

      2. Negropolis

        I'd even put Ashcroft above her. I think her problem was that the consequences of her actions were further reaching than some of the others.

  23. Lascauxcaveman

    Condi may actually be a savvy pick for Mittens. Black, female, reputation as both cerebral and a 'tough cookie.' Could siphon off a lot of votes.

    Plus they say the average American will vote for the candidate they'd most like to sit down and have a beer with throw in beer in their face and scream "War Criminal" at.

    1. Pseudonymously_Joe

      Plus, she has the closest approximation the Republicans have to "foreign policy gravitas".

      The only problem I could see with her as Mittens' running mate is that she has all of the charisma of, well, Mitt Romney.

      1. Lascauxcaveman

        If I understand the ego of Mitt Romney like I think I do, he's going to want to make sure, whomever he picks, that he's the prettier of the two. I think Condi's got a real chance here.

        1. Fare la Volpe

          Mitt Romney is that bitchy chick in high school who befriended a fat girl just to look skinnier by comparison.

          It certainly explains why he's obsessed with haircuts.

          1. ThundercatHo

            Do you think he will go for the nasty fat girl (Christy) or the nice one (Huckabee)?

    2. Negropolis

      Siphon off which votes? You're the second one to say this and I don't see it AT ALL. They already tried this stunt; it was called "Sarah Palin."

  24. Come here a minute

    Well one thing Condi's got going for her is she's got Snowbilly beat in the brains department — she finished college in three years, and even (gasp) taught at Stanford.

  25. owhatever

    Prove yourself, Condi. Shoot some old white guy in the face and get him to apologize to you. You already proved you could help start an unnecessary war against a country that had not attacked us.

  26. actor212

    Is Condi the model for the new logo, Editrix?

    And if that question is out of line, I'll go put the gimp suit on. Again

    gladly *squeal*

  27. Baconzgood

    OK enough is enough meat org people. I know that you have a good cause. I'm not a large beef eater (the lil' lady is a vegetarian and since we live together that means there is little meat in the house), but can we get rid of the minced mystery meat ad and put back the sexy girls stuffing their face with phallic vegetables?

    1. OldWhiteLies

      Indeed. While I know it "pays the bills," I always feel close to retching if my eyes accidentally linger too long up there by mistake. Serious EWWW.

      Alas that is by their design.

    2. HempDogbane

      I'm with you. But I also received a (late) birthday card today with Happy Birthday spelled out in bacon strips.

  28. mavenmaven

    She doesn't have enough messed up children to be GOP VP, family values and all that.

    1. valthemus

      Give her a break! It's tricky for a gal to have a kid when she's only having sex with other women. A nightmare of logistics, it is!

  29. Terry

    Hey, Condi! Hillary is a MUCH better Secretary of State than you ever were. Suck on it.

  30. rickmaci

    Damn. I'm still trying to deal with the cat suit and whip. Not Condi's, Editrix's.

  31. elburritodeluxe

    On Memorial Day I cut a check to Wounded Warriors, the non-profit which tries to salvage the lives of the untold thousands of men and women who were the footsoldiers in Condi's "American Leadership." I hope she does run and I hope she reminds Americans why we voted so overwhelmingly for Obama in '08.

  32. OldWhiteLies

    Exceptionalizm. I do sooo love that word (not). Let us examine at what, we in the US, would seem to be exceptional, at least as we are seen by much of the rest of the world, shall we?

    The US is exceptionally self centered.
    The US is exceptionally myopic. (Is that already a redundancy?)
    The US is exceptionally unapologetic for its transgressions upon humanity.
    The US is exceptionally unforgiving of all others whom it deems have transgressed against it.
    The US is exceptionally disrepectful of other's sovereignty.
    The US is exceptionally disrepectful of other's cultures.
    The US is exceptionally imperialistic.
    The US is exceptionally short-sighted.
    The US is exceptional at incarcerating people, with and without due process.
    The US is exceptional at making excuses for war.
    The US is exceptional at oligarchy and its perpetuation.

    I think the point here is that one's unqualified use of the word "exceptionalism," when one is speaking of the US in particular, is so fraught with moral repugnance as to immediately, irreparably, and irretrievably DISQUALIFY them from any position even remotely related to governing, in all its iterations.

  33. Beowoof

    Thanks Condi, now get some coffee for us and get back to being the token most righties think you are.

  34. HippieEsq

    "The only thing that people dislike more than unilateral American leadership is….BUSH".

    (that means you, too, Condi).

  35. AlaskaGrrl

    “The only thing that people dislike more than unilateral American leadership is no American leadership at all.”

    That and the bombing, the invading, the drone attacks….

  36. Wile E. Quixote

    (with apologies to Nat "King" Cole)

    Condoleezza, Condoleezza
    Daddy named you
    You're so like a redneck with your gappy smile
    Is it only cause you're crazy
    They have blamed you
    For that Condoleezza strangeness in your smile?

    Did you smile to tempt Dick Cheney, Condoleezza?
    Was that your way to inside his blackened heart?
    Many memos have been placed upon your desktop
    They just lie there, and they die there
    If you want to read those memos, Condoleezza
    The bin Laden one would be the place to start.

    [instrumental interlude]

    Do you smile to tempt Mitt Romney, Condoleezza?
    Or is it just your way to hide your withered heart?
    Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
    They just lie there, and they die there
    Are you human, are you real, Condoleezza
    Or just a cold and lying, crazy, right-wing tart?

  37. TribecaMike

    If she is asked and accepts, things just won't the same at Friday Night Open Mic night at Phil's Kon Tiki Lounge, and least until the second week of November..

  38. Negropolis

    “The only thing that people dislike more than unilateral American leadership is no American leadership at all.”

    Yes, because this president has shown no leadership whatsoever, and your boss was a total profile in character. Fuck you, Condi. Fuck you, very much.

  39. Negropolis

    BTW, when it comes to Rice, I like mine Susan, not Condi. And Sarah Palin likes her's Glenn, apparently.

  40. valthemus

    Newt Gingrich demands the right to wag his finger at the NAACP and call them a bunch of lazy welfare leeches and Dr. CondiBitch says nothing. Am I really supposed to listen to her when she spouts off about "American exceptionalism"?
