Condi Rice has some nerve!

This is rich, Condi Rice gave the commencement speech at Boston College yesterday and, surprise surprise, drew protests. The NYT reports that she told the students that they ought to be more open minded to other points of view. Imagine that!

She said "There is nothing wrong with holding an opinion and holding it passionately. But at those times you're absolutely sure that you are right go find somebody who disagrees. Don't allow yourself the easy course of the constant 'Amen' to everything you say."

Is she kidding???? Man, she's got some nerve! It would have been nice is she had taken her own advice before the she and W. decided to invade Iraq. Maybe if she had actually bothered to find a few of the folks in the intelligence community that disagreed with her dire predictions of imminent "mushroom clowds" instead of smearing them and having them drummed out of the service, we wouldn't be in the mess we're in today. But, I guess, in that case W. had been talking to his Heavenly Father so she didn't need to stop giving him constant 'Amens.'
