Condoleezza Rice is an incredibly intelligent and motivated woman who served in the Bush administration as both Secretary of State and National Security Advisor.
Finally, though, she might be doing something worthwhile to make up for that…
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will reunite with an old flame…in TV land. Tina Fey announced Thursday, on NPR's The Leonard Lopate Show, that the Stanford University political science professor will make her star turn in an upcoming episode.
Jack Donaghy (played by Alec Baldwin) name-dropped Rice as his ex-girlfriend throughout the first season of NBC's 30 Rock and it appears she will debut in "a couple weeks" as the fictional executive's former flame.
Glad to see she's finally getting her career on track. Maybe she'll actually make something of herself one day.

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart sat down with Condoleezza Rice to discuss her new book. Jon admitted to being charmed by the former Secretary of State, and after watching the interview, I have to admit she does have an ability to charm. Though, I believe the technical term is "glamour."
Part two can be found below.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice weighs in on the controversial How will Afghanistan destroy us all? issue…
"The last time we left Afghanistan, and we abandoned Pakistan," she said, "that territory became the very territory on which Al Qaeda trained and attacked us on September 11th. So our national security interests are very much tied up in not letting Afghanistan fail again and become a safe haven for terrorists.
"It's that simple," she declared, "if you want another terrorist attack in the U.S., abandon Afghanistan."
Or… you can just decide to ignore CIA memos on expected terrorist activity on U.S. soil.
Either method should work fine.

Today — on this patriotic holiday — we have charged ourselves with choosing from amongst three women Secretaries of State: Hillary Clinton, Condoleezza Rice and Madeline Albright, and must choose whom we'd most like to to Grill (barbecue with), Grill (conduct a comprehensive interview with) and Grill (cover their teeth with some phat gold teeth).
Grill – Hillary Clinton
After years of being married to Bill Clinton and serving in the male-dominated U.S. Senate, it pretty much goes without saying that she knows how to deal with greasy wieners.

They say everything you need to know, you learn in kindergarten, and it's certainly true for me. I'm as sure of it as I am that Ronald Reagan is President and Michael Jackson is relevant and sort of normal. So if children are so smart, sure, let's have them conduct our torture trials.
Kool-Aid Sheikh Mohammed is my new band name.
