"Do you dream of a fairytale wedding?"/'I think I’m well beyond the fairytale marriage stage."

Piers Morgan inanely interrogating Condoleezza Rice about marriage.

It isn't inane; he was trying to get her to slip up and make some indication that she's a lesbian. That would be an interviewing success, really.

Being unaware of which state your interviewee lives, on the other hand. Not inane, but close.

The show is quickly becoming this decade's Wilton North Report.

Amazes me that the geniuses at CNN thought they should even continue this type of TV show format after Larry King moved on.

This clip wasn't an interrogation, even in the light banter sense of 'interrogation,' never mind enhanced interrogation techniques.

Unlike Palin, Condi isn't fishing for coddling by Althouse-types. So, don't bother, it's actually insulting to Condi. Condi can handle herself. Now, how has Palin been hurt by the lame stream media today?

BTW, when are the cons here going to do their opo research on Morgan?

There's a lot there.

"Well, you're quite a catch, aren't you."

Condi civilly replies, "Why, thank you."

Irene thinks, "Bite me."

That's so freakin' unbelievable.

So does this guy know how to spell s-e-x-i-s-t?

Irene said...

JAL, I suspect he thinks it's F-L-A-T-T-E-R-Y.

Her husband George Bush was openly sleeping with another woman.

I think growing up in Birmingham was more than enough preparation for this turkey.

Condi Rice is such a puzzle to the left that they have given up trashing her.

"JAL, I suspect he thinks it's F-L-A-T-T-E-R-Y."

If you're talking about Piers saying she is quite a catch, Irene, then I too suspect he thought it was flattery. It was intended to be, and Condi Rice accepted it as it was intended.

She's a class act.

Penny said...

Do you really think that women who climb to lofty positions like Condi Rice are focused on feminist slights?

People like her have much more important things with which to concern themselves.

That is a inert brat

Irene said...

It depends where you position a "slight" on your offense
meter.

"Out of context," the banter was flattering, and Dr. Rice was appropriately gracious. Taken as a whole, the interview set my meter buzzing.

Imagine if the interviewee had been Barbara Boxer? How long would she have elegantly buoyed through the saccharine cooing?
