Fashion Chic - The Other Condi Controversy
With her Oscar de la Renta scarlet silk gown, her knee-high boots and long jacket, her pastel Akris suits and jaunty flip, she's making women in Washington watch with a mixture of envy, awe and inspiration.
"I think she's amazing," said Mrs. Al-Sabah. "She is dressing feminine, yet she's serious-minded. I think she's got a lot of style." ("Dressed for the Capitol kill," By Stephanie Mansfield, THE WASHINGTON TIMES, June 27, 2005)
You could say that when it comes to Washingtonian femdress Ms. Rice does not follow fashion, she creates it. Another sign that this woman, who holds serious power within the Bush administration, is her own woman. She does not wet her finger to the wind and consult with the White House Social Office, Hollywood super stars, or brain dead pundits for her fashion direction.
Our country is slowly having its intellectual vigor and spiritual life blood sucked out by pseudo intellectuals and their mind numbing political correctness and conventional wisdom concepts. Politicians who can see no further than their own political future and reëlection will never throw theirselves on the "cultural grenades" that are blowing apart our nation. These folks won't even change the knot on their tie without public opinion polling and focus groups.
Perhaps this little bit of Condoleezza Rice fashion drama does suggest she could be an ideal candidate in 2008. I don't believe that it would ever happen, but, Big Bubba will state without any reservation whatsoever that if our choices were to be either the Ice Queen or Condoleezza Rice I would go with Condi.
