RICE STEPS INTO THE RING WITH BOXER

This, too, from the folks at Lucianne. Secretary of State designate Condoleezza Rice squared off yesterday with California's quintessential liberal, Senator Barbara Boxer (D), in what the New York Post's Vincent Morris describes was a testy exchange between the two during the first day of Rice's confirmation hearings. Boxer, of course, can get under most any Republican's skin and is the personification of what has gone wrong with the politics of the Golden State. In recent days she challenged Bush's election day victory by contesting the vote in Ohio and burst into crocodile tears when that dogfight fizzled. Don't the citizens of California ever feel embarrassed by the histrionics of this whiner? One thing's for certain, Condoleezza's no lightweight in the ring!
