Condi, Condi, Condi

One looks with amazement at the latest adventures in clownishness from the Secretary of State.

Arab conference - she goes there and asks for debt forgiveness (for Iraq, maybe next time it'll be for the US) and opening embassies in Iraq. "Nope", is the embarrassed reply.

Carter - she accuses Carter of ignoring the advice of the State Department. Carter says he never got that advice, so she calls him a liar, not nicely. Carter calls her a liar, nicely.

A day after the Bush administration urged India to step up pressure on Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on his coming visit to New Delhi, India tartly said it did not need “any guidance on the future conduct of bilateral relations,” making it plain that no saber rattling from its friends in Washington would impair its relationship with a vital energy supplier. “India and Iran are ancient civilizations whose relations span centuries,” the Indian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday. “Both nations are perfectly capable of managing all aspects of their relationship with the appropriate degree of care and attention.” Mr. Ahmadinejad is to make a brief stop in New Delhi next Tuesday. India and Iran are in talks over a pipeline that would ferry natural gas through Pakistan to the Indian border. An Indian cabinet member is in Pakistan this week for negotiations over pricing. The United States has not favored the pipeline. On Monday, a State Department spokesman, Tom Casey, said India should use the visit to urge Iran to stop nuclear enrichment.
This is after the US demanded that the Swiss show them a gas contract signed with Iraq. I think this type of bullying is tiring out allies, friends, and neutrals. What's the point, except to flaunt your aggressive stupidity?

Wherever she goes, she leaves trail of people wide-eyed and slapping their foreheads in amazement. It would be funny, but it ain't.

How much of a surprise is it that the Worst Administration EVAR has the Worst Secretary of State EVAR?

(Not much of one in my book. I'd be a lot more surprised if someone could point out even one high-level Bush functionary who is actually doing a fair to decent job.)

Yeah, I know I shouldn't be amazed, or surprised. Still, whenever I think that you can't top this, she goes ahead and does it.
And all in one week.
