Boxer Attacks Condi
The left has gone too far:
SEN. BARBARA BOXER, D-CALIF.: Who pays the price? Who pays theprice? I'm not going to pay a personal price. My kids are too old and my grandchild is too young. You're not going to pay a particular price, as I understand it, with an immediate family.
Now, Secretary Rice was stunnedand later said this to FOX News:
SECRETARY OF STATE CONDOLEEZZA RICE: I guess that means I don't have kids… was that the purpose? Atthe time I just found it a bit confusing, frankly. But in retrospect, gee, Ithought single women had come further than that.
And, the White Housewas quick to react to Senator Boxer's attack. Tony Snow said this on FOX NewsRadio:
WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY TONY SNOW: Here yougot a professional woman, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and Barbara Boxeris sort of throwing little jabs because Condi doesn't have children, as if thatmeans that she doesn't understand the concerns of parents. Great leap backwardfor feminism.
So, Condi has no children to fight in the war. So what? Here's a plan to shut up the lefties. Condi could adopt 5 or 6 orphans (preferably negroes) who are just months from turning 18. That should give her plenty of time to talk them into joining the military. That would shut Barbara Boxer up and help out the military. No blood relatives of Condi would be in danger.
All the far left wants to do is throw emotion at complicated problems.
