Here’s the situation. Bill O’Reilly actually stops being a Republican cheerleader for a few minutes and begins asking some serious questions. Obviously, Condi has two options. A) Tell the truth B) Pull excuses out of her ass.
You be the judge. The quote:
O’Reilly: The truth of the matter is our correspondents at Fox News can’t go out for a cup of coffee in Baghdad.
Rice: Bill, that’s tough. It’s tough. But what… would they have wanted to have gone out for a cup of coffee when Saddam Hussein was in power?
And folks, there ya have it. The ‘latte defense’. Would they have wanted to get a cup of coffee if Saddam was in power. Let’s extrapolate that logic to further humiliate her for picking option B.
O’Reilly: The truth of the matter is our correspondents at Fox News can’t even take a shit in public restrooms in Baghdad.
Rice: Bill, that’s tough. It’s tough. But what… would they have wanted to take a dump when Saddam Hussein was in power?
Hmmm, I know I sure would have! In fact, I would pretty much rather do all the things I normally do, regardless of who happens to be in power. Heck, from New Orleans have no houses or a place to work. But would they really have wanted to have homes if John Kerry or *gasp* Michael Badnarik was in charge?
These are the tough questions we all must face.
I wish I could make this shit up.
