And what exactly has she done for the US in her pervious job?

I see that she'd done nothing and the cartoon depicts her as it should, for the parrot she is.

Let me guess Dr. Rice is also a moron. A brilliant woman must really scare you Lib's, or buy the way she happens to be BLACK too. She didn't use affirmative "placement" so she must go down in flames. Am I close?

Lets review the conservative black role models....Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas....Former Secretary of State Colin Powell...Incoming Secretary of State Condi Rice....

Now, compare to the liberal black role models.....Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Charlie Rangel.

you decide.


Clarence Thomas - A sexual harasser

Condi Rice - A liar

Yeah you could say they fit in well with the rest of the GOP

Now, try appointing some OTHER blacks to high levels.

Rod Paige, Sec'y of Education.

Also,

The six white men in Bush's Cabinet are in the minority, outnumbered by two black men, three white women, one Asian American man, one Asian American woman, and an Hispanic man. The group inlcudes a smattering of governors, corporate chiefs, defeated senators and veterans of previous administrations. The female cabinet and cabinet-level appointees include Condalezza Rice as national security advisor, Ann Veneman as Secretary of Agriculture, Gale Norton as Secretary of the Interior, and most recently, To The Contrary panelist Elaine Chao, as Secretary of Labor.

It's not about her race or her sex...it's about her actions.

What is amazing about this is that the Democrats seem to hate minority prosperity. When Bush appointed Janice Rogers Brown, a black woman, to the DC Court of Appeals last year the democrats blasted her.

Elijah Cumming (D-MD) stated that Bush set out to………..



nominate individuals who are not qualified for these positions of trust and who are out of the mainstream of America.


Not only Janice Brown but don’t forget Clarence Thomas another favorite democrat target.

Condi Rice is highly intelligent, though I see her as more the Idiot Savant. She just hasn't been in the right job to exercise that brilliance for the last 4 years.
Funny how you Freepers are so quick to embrace people of color like Rice & Powell, yet decry the brown people overall as being a burden on society?

She's unqualified for the job now, as she was in the job she's leaving...what don't you get?

Oh come on, all cartoonists lampoon their targets.

I note that no one is upset at the way Bush is portrayed, this mock indignation thing is pretty weak. Political correctness hasn't ever been a political cartoonists strong point. Rise above such minor bitchiness...

BTW i think Condalizza Rice is an amazing person, I think she had a PHD by 25 years old. Pitty there isn't a bio around, or more on her ideas.


Agreed. What they ARE lampooning is her willingness to go along with EVERYthing that Bush says. According to news commentary on NPR today, other countries are not welcoming her appointment simply because she does follow the Bush line to the letter. Powell was moderate and there was more of a sense that he could be reasoned with.

Expect to see more barbs aimed her way because it will be like having a double-dose of Bush.

As to Democrat African American appointees, there was Roger Gregory, Dr. Joycelyn Elders, Hazel O'Leary,Ronald H. Brown , Mike Espy,.Jesse Brown -- a disabled Marine veteran and African-American, and Clifton Wharton Jr... those were all Clinton appointees. I'm sure there are more; those are just the ones I found.

They're allowed to get away with it though, because they're democrats and they're supposed to be the only party that cares for blacks and minorities (not really sure where that myth came from).

Uhmm, I think it started when the civil rights movement finally started gaining ground and the republican's opposed it, strongly. The democrats backed it enough to cause the 'dixiecrats', aka racist pro-segregation democrats, to bolt the party and join the republicans. Yeah, that, uhmm, might have something to do with it. Perhaps that and pushing affirmative action, social welfare and unions helped out too? I dunno, I must be crazy or something.

In fact, here's a summary that compares the most recent Democratic administration with the most recent Republican one in terms of who they hired:

“In fact, during the Bush Administration, President Bush appointed only 11 African Americans of a total of 165 appointments to the nation’s district courts, or less than seven percent. This stands in stark contrast to President Clinton’s record. In his first term, President Clinton appointed 33 African Americans out of 170 district court appointments, or almost twenty percent. In his second term, while continually battling a Republican majority in the Senate, President Clinton appointed 20 African Americans out of 137 district court appointments, or fourteen percent.

“President Bush’s record is truly disturbing and demonstrates a lack of commitment to having a judiciary that looks like America.”

Bush has a long way to go.

It has nothing to do with color. She lied in front of the 9/11 comission, which is one of the many reasons why she needs to go.

I think this column says it all about the democratic treatment of blacks.



In a thoughtful column on Townhall.com, Jay Bryant wonders why it is that Democrats can credibly claim the mantle of protector of the rights of blacks in this country. He’s not the first to ask the question, nor to observe that, among other things:

The filibusterers of the Civil Rights bills in the 1960's were Democrats. The liberals whose welfare-state policies destroyed families in post- Great Society inner cities were Democrats.

But Bryant also brings up something very important. Democrats talk a good game on race, but it is Republicans who have a far better record on the issue. Bryant notes that while tooting their own horns on being exemplars of racial tolerance and progress, the Democrats have elected exactly one black Senator to the United States Senate…one! The Republican party has elected three. Strangely, that’s not something you hear about in discussions on which party is better on the issue of race.

Bryant notes the fact that President Bush was booed this week when laying a wreath to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Never mind that it was Bush, not any Democrat president, who appointed Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice to the two highest cabinet posts ever held by blacks. Of course the answer from Democrat-aligned race baiters like Harry Belafonte is to call Powell a “house Derogatory N Word Deleted. Even worse things have been said about Rice – cartoonist Aaron McGruder, writer of The Boondocks, spent more than a week mocking and attacking Rice as “needing a man” to settle her down, in the process also attacking black conservatives such as Larry Elder and Ward Connerly – just imagine if conservatives or Republicans made similar comments about black liberals. Yet Democrats get a pass.

It’s well past time for Republicans to stop playing the role of battered wife on this issue, accepting blame they don’t deserve and sticking around for more abuse. Republicans and conservatives should, every time false charges of racism are hurled, point out the discrepancies between the Democrat’s words and their actions, and the very real steps that Republicans and conservatives are taking to actually improve the lives of minorities, not just to pander to them with words and handouts.

Did she not skip 1st and 7th grade and receive her masters in Under a Year? Her Thesis was done on a country that does not exist anymore, and she has her Doctorate in Affirmitive Reaction. World leaders are already saying it was a bad move, I think Powells loss will bite Everyone in the Arse...

i think the last cartoon WAS racist. just the last one, though.
i mean, calling a black person black isn't racism, it's realism.
racist is taken to mean a NEGATIVE comment about a race. 'brown sugar' is a compliment.
drawing a satirical cartoon is not racist. try and draw one. you need to be able to recognise the person, or it's just scribbling. that parrot looks like her to me. sounds like her, too.

what i don't understand, is, how come EVERY SINGLE THING comes down to two sides? the world just isn't that black and white(oops, i mentioned colors). not every single republican supports the war or is anti-abortion or christian. not every democrat is a communist/socialist, or pro-choice. there are many reasons to choose your party, and generally, only ONE issue will decide the choice for each voter. there is no space on the ballot for each issue, so everything gets lumped togethyer into an unmanageble goo of ideas.

if your against killing unborn american babies(of any color), then you FOR killing brown and yellow foreign babies.
if you are FOR killing unborn american babies(of any color), then you are AGAINST killing foreign brown and yellow babies.
schizoprenic, no?

i'm going to start a thread on 'the liberal media'. y'all are confused.

On the cartoons, the first I'd say isn't racist, the second pushes it with the 'brown sugar' comment, but the third, unless its a reference to someting I don't get, definitly is. The toonist made her look mean, ugly, dumb, and covered in unwanted screaming 'babies'. Might as well as had a welfare check underneath the 'ol rocking chair.

Anyway, Rice is considered to be rather strange looking. I usually say that she's one of those human alien hybrids that has grown up and gotten a job in gubment.

Either way, rice is intelligent and a scholar. I belevie she studied soviet history in college, with the cold war in mind. Excellent choice for Sec of State in my opinion.

VERY true!!! I remember those days very vividly.

The Republicans, who ARE conservatives, wanted the conservative line hewed... let me refresh all your memories there: They did NOT want African Americans to move into jobs that were held exclusively by Whites, they didn't want African Americans to move into nicer upscale urban neighborhoods, they didn't want African Americans to be in position of power (professor, head of a department, head of a business) over White people, they didn't want racially mixed marriages (though it was okay for the young white men to run off and have sex with dark-skinned women). etc, etc.

Remember, conservatives are not for change in society. They desperately wanted the days of "Jim Crow" back.

In responce to Bush not appointing as many minorities as Clinton see below:



Despite opposition cries that the Bush White House is nothing but "a bunch of white males," the numbers indicate that the president appointed women and minorities in numbers that more closely resemble Clinton than Bush the elder. Significantly, President Bush appointed women to more influential positions than any prior president. The Bush inner circle includes Karen Hughes, counselor to the president, ("the most powerful woman ever to work on a White House staff"20), National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice, and Margaret Spelling (nee La Montagne), director of the Domestic Policy Council.

President Bush's minority appointments are substantially greater than all three predecessors and, at the highest echelons, include Rice and Alberto Gonzales, counsel to the president. The expanded role of Hispanics reflects the president's Texas roots as well as the growing influence of this sector of the population.

Do you ever wonder why they call her Condiliar Rice?
Rice's minority status as an african american female is little more than an insurance policy against critiscim. Perhaps the right wing nut jobs would like a little education into her career with Chevron, her blatant lies during the 9-11 investigations, etc. And of course anyone critical of her job is going to be labeled a racist, but that's the whole point.

Here's an explination of the tubes...


www.opednews.com...
Despite virtually admitting that she was disingenuous about Iraq’s nuclear threat, Condoleeza Rice, President Bush’s national security advisor, in an October 3, 2004 interview with ABC television, again defended the administration’s decision to remove Saddam Hussein’s regime. In a prior September 8, 2002 interview with CNN, Ms. Rice stated flatly that aluminum tubes purchased by Iraq were “only really suited for nuclear weapons programs.” Then she made the threat even more vivid by concluding that, “We don’t want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.” The only problem is that two anonymous administration officials told the New York Times that Ms. Rice knew that Iraq’s potential use for the tubes was in hot dispute within the U.S. government at the time of the CNN interview. Caught red-handed, Ms. Rice, in the ABC appearance, acknowledged that she knew of the disagreement at the time of the CNN interview but claimed that she didn’t know “the nature of the dispute” then. Yet months before the interview, the government’s top nuclear experts in the Energy Department, who believed that the tubes were the wrong size to be used to make nuclear weapons, conveyed this information to Ms. Rice’s staff.

She knew and warned her friend Willie Brown not to fly Sept. 9th... Now you tell me why she would just happen to warn a good friend not to fly?
