A bitch's thoughts on Condi

Angry Black Bitch ruminates on our Secretary of State.

I've never hidden my admiration for Angry Black Bitch's blog, but today she has outdone herself.

In a post called "By Request, Some Thoughts on Condi..." Bitch answers a reader's question about her thoughts on Condoleezza Rice. ABB's response is funny and very worth reading; she addresses the assumption that she should admire Rice simply because she is a black woman, the surprise people express about how well educated and well spoken Rice is, the way that George Bush uses smarter women to advocate for him, and her ancillary loathing for Ann Coulter.

But I was most impressed by ABB's indelicate, and absolutely nail-on-the-head, description of Condi's physical presence: "This bitch acknowledges Condis resume and wishes she didnt hold herself as if she is holding in a monster shit."

I'm not sure anyone has ever summed up the Condi "look" so precisely.
