Condoleezza Rice Loves Old White Guys
In a mildly funny open mic gaffe today, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice admitted to having a crush on Brit Hume and kindly old Mr. Smith down at the corner five-and-dime.
In comments overheard on an open microphone between morning television interviews, including one with Fox, the top U.S. diplomat said: "My Fox guys, I love every single one of them."
She also trashed CBS's ratings while expressing her similar love for their avuncular former anchor Harry Smith.
One old white guy she's presumably less fond of is Robert Novak, whose column today is entirely about how all the Republicans in Washington think Rice is fucking everything up bigtime and no one wants to work at State anymore. We have Rice '08 Fever!
