Excuse me? Is Rice in some exalted class, that I should not even deign to disparage her? Pa-leeze. I don't buy into that mind-set. She's a dummy and a puppet, plain and simple. No big deal to me, though she was so obviously unqualified, it was more than a little embarrassing to have her representing this country.
For example, even TRY to compare her to George Schultz, Dean Rusk, John Foster Dulles, Madeline Albright, John Kerry, or even Henry Kissinger, for example. She falls to the bottom of the list effortlessly, out of her depth, and then some. Michelle Obama is a beautiful, smart, well-qualified First Lady, who has done nothing except bring grace and poise to The White House. No comparison at all to the bad hire. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mdixon.6569@...> wrote : Well Ollie, you might as well say that she's a real *Aunt Jemima*. BTW, what has Michelle Obama ever done that is so note worthy besides parroting her husband and showing off her new clothes and taking food out of the mouths of hungry kids? For you to try to judge her intelligence is like the twenty watt light bulb saying the hundred watt ain't so bright. From: "olliesedwuz@...

That said, Michelle Obama is miles ahead of Condoleeza in terms of intelligence and ability. What a failed pianist was doing as secretary of state is beyond me. As far as I could tell, her main gig was showing off all her new clothes and parroting whatever Cheney wanted her to say - a real doofus. Now she is back at Stanford, playing the token. Bah. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mdixon.6569@...> wrote : It is a matter of hypocrisy Judy. Ollie suggested that a cartoon of Michelle Obama was racist because of her body mass as opposed to Trumps former model wife and I countered with the hypocrisy of the left. If you didn't notice, I followed that sentence invoking the Times and the Post with a question mark. No, it wasn't published by them but was by a syndicated cartoonist that they frequently publish and continue to do so. Let's not play stupid Judy, you know exactly what the sentiment of that cartoon was meant to convey. A black woman sitting in a rocking chair, rocking an aluminum tube as if it were a baby with a play on words from a famous movie. The line, "I don't know nothing 'bout birthing babies", mocking a simpleton, an uneducated lazy slave, one who does what the massa tells her to do. The very fact that you can defend it, while claiming you're not, is ten times lower than my not knowing that neither the Times nor the Post actually published it even though it was one of their syndicated cartoonists. It was all about hypocrisy Judy.. From: "authfriend@...

And I just got done saying myself that the accuracy of the caption wasn't relevant. I don't know what "sentiment" the cartoon was intended to evoke, and neither do you. The political point, though, was valid, and I would guess that's why some defended it. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mdixon.6569@...> wrote : No Judy, I didn't need a source. I remember the controversy it caused. Whether it was published in a news paper or not, it was defended by liberal bloggers and people in the media and there was more than just that one cartoon. The accuracy of the caption is irrelevant. It's the sentiment that it intended to evoke, that she was a stupid, uneducated, black woman, still on the plantation.

Was that New York Times or Washington Post? Hmmmmmmmm? That disgraceful cartoon was never published in a newspaper, only on the cartoonist's Web site. So much for the accuracy of your right-wing sources. (You have the caption wrong too, but it doesn't make any difference.)
