Condoleeza’s Call For ‘Sensitivity’

Condoleeza Rice

Condoleeza Rice has expanded on First Lady Laura Bush’s sentiments about not using gay marriage as a political tactic. Speaking to North Carolina’s News & Record, the secretary of state seemed to contradict President Bush’s anti-gay marriage agenda.

When we get into difficult debates about social policy, we get into difficult debates that touch people’s lives. The only thing that I ask is that Americans do it with a kind of sensitivity that real individuals and real human beings are involved here.

Now, when we get into difficult debates about foreign policy, we get into difficult debates that end people’s lives. But let’s be sensitive about that discussion, especially to the press, mmm-kay?

    I don’t believe anything that comes out of her mouth. This is just the Bush administrations way of flipflopping and trying to say something to please every one of their sicko interest groups.

    Black people bother me, really they do. I mean, I don’t wish them any specific harm, but I don’t think they should be in everybody’s face demanding the right to vote or own property. That goes against the way we’ve done things in this country for 300 years. I get so upset sometimes I can’t finish pudding pop.

    So please, if you’re going to debate giving black people the right to vote, do it sensitively. There are real individuals and real human beings involved here. And by that, I mean white people. White male people.

    Looks like Condoleeza is 100% lesbian :)
