The Secretary of State Yells At a Cashier
Post reporter Glenn Kessler has a book about Condi coming out, and it looks insane and great, if the stories in today's Rush & Molloy are to be believed. Highlights include the story of a friend bouncing quarters off her ass at a party and the charming tale of Condi proving just why she is the most powerful person in Washington, according to GQ, even though she can't accomplish a damn thing at State and no one takes her calls anymore. No, she's still powerful because she knows the fine art of putting service employees in their rightful places.
Coit Blacker, a Stanford professor who is one of the secretary of state's closest friends, recalls going into a shop where Rice asked to see earrings. The clerk showed her costume jewelry. Rice asked to see something nicer, prompting the clerk to whisper some sass under her breath.
Blacker remembers Rice tearing the woman to shreds.
"Let's get one thing straight," he recalls her saying. "You are behind the counter because you have to work for minimum wage. I'm on this side asking to see the good jewelry because I make considerably more."
Finally, a non-ideological reason to hate her!
She makes something in the low six figures every year, jerk-ass! Show her the fancy jewelry.
She probably tips shitty too.
