President Bush has announced that he is replacing retiring Secretary of State Colin Powell with current National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice. I was never much of a fan of Powell, who seemed far too interested in being conciliatory even in a post-9/11 world. Rice seems to have a better grasp of what is needed in the stark reality of a world where you are either with us or against us in the war on terror.
What is sad is that Rice, who I believe is the first black female to serve as Secretary of State, will no doubt face attack from liberal blacks because she has failed to be properly obedient and has defiantly left the liberal plantation. Someday the majority of blacks will realize that liberals aren't interested in blacks gaining positions of authority, equality and power; rather they are interested in seeing that the right kind (i.e. liberals like Barack Obama) of blacks get into positions of power, blacks who remain servile to their liberal masters and don't get uppity when Jesse Jackson tells them what to think.
