The Spine-Dissolving Power of a State Dept. Job

James Lileks made me laugh out loud today (again). He was mentioning how much Condoleezza Rice’s tough foreign policy image has suffered since becoming Secretary of State. He writes: “…she sank up to her waist in Peace Process quicksand, and the only reason she hasn’t sunk to her neck is because she’s standing on the shoulders of those who have been swallowed whole before.”

Then he writes:

“Then again, I’m starting to think that you could put Godzilla in charge of State, and in two months he’d be four feet tall, breathing perfume, and proposing a Tokyo-reconstruction loan program and a six-point program for getting Mothra to sit down with Gamara.”

Read the whole Bleat.
