If You Can't Say Something Rice, Don't Say Anything at All
"Aides said Bush and Rice know each other so well they have conversations based on body language, with maybe four words exchanged... Rice spends more time with Bush than any aide except perhaps Chief of Staff Andrew H. Card Jr..." [WP]
"Official Washington has seldom seen a relationship between a president and a member of his staff as close as the one between George W. Bush and Condoleezza Rice... Rice's ability to become an almost clone-like extension of the president - to understand what he wants, to make her only agenda his agenda and to carry out his wishes with unfailing loyalty - has made her invaluable." [LAT]
All this innuendo about Bush and Rice having an affair! Such a welcome diversion from the innuendo about her being gay!
