Condi Pulls Out the “Latte Defense” Card

Condi angryJust when you think you’ve heard it all… Our ever embarrassing secretary of state says one of the dumbest things I’ve heard in quite some time.

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.
