WASHINGTON - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrived at the Wiesbaden Army Airfield on Wednesday dressed all in black. She was wearing a black skirt that hit just above the knee, and it was topped with a black coat that fell to mid-calf. The coat, with its seven gold buttons running down the front and its band collar, called to mind a Marine's dress uniform or the "save humanity" ensemble worn by Keanu Reeves in "The Matrix."Even though every thing Condi has touched over the past four years has turned to, well, you know, the press isn't talking about that. Even though she's continuing to screw stuff up on a daily basis, we're not talking about that.
As Rice walked out to greet the troops, the coat blew open in a rather swashbuckling way to reveal the top of a pair of knee-high boots. The boots had a high, slender heel that is not particularly practical. But it is a popular silhouette because it tends to elongate and flatter the leg. In short, the boots are sexy.
No, oh no. Instead of talking about anything of substance, the paragons of the Washington press corps are now writing silly-ass fluff pieces about Condi's clothes.
Holy shit. How vapid is that?
