Brought to you by Think Progress.

Condi accepts that Iraq is ‘a stain’ on her legacy.

Quote:
In an analysis of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s efforts to “reshape her legacy,” New York Times reporter Helene Cooper notes today that Rice “is trying hard to rewrite her legacy to include something more than Iraq.” As for Iraq, Rice’s “colleagues and friends say that she has accepted that Iraq is a stain that she probably cannot remove before she leaves office.”

Stain is right. Blood stain. Figuratively all over your hands, missie!

I don't think she can "wash her hands" of it, either. Nor be allowed to.

This quote is precious:
Quote:
In fact, her friends say that she rarely questions whether she is right or wrong, instead choosing to believe in a particular truth with absolute certainty until she doesn’t believe it anymore, at which point she moves on. “Now you’ve got me trying to psycho-analyze myself,” she complained.

Shows how little a self-conscience she has. But you got to wonder how she can still believe in any particular truths she had about Iraq early on. All those old truths just simply aren't true anymore. Never have been.

And a big "NO SHIT" to:
Quote:
... she acknowledged, ever so obliquely, that her first four years working for the Bush administration were not her best.

She would have faired much better if she had only been Bush's nanny and wiped his nose and butt when needed.

I was talking with a friend about her the other day and he said ( I approve ) she should be renamed Contra-sleeza-rice. Sounds good to me.

But unlike Wladyslaw Szpilman, the Polish Jew (played by Adrian Brody in the movie The Pianist), the elitist Rice plays her piano like nothing's happening, while her fatal policy calls probably endangered a number of Iraq's "Szpilmans".
