The blithe idiocy of the Bush administration

A little Friday outrage, courtesy of your secretary of state:

Heckled during a visit to Washington's closest ally, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Friday the United States has made thousands of mistakes but is pursuing worthy goals in Iraq.

"I know we've made tactical errors, thousands of them I'm sure," Rice said at a foreign policy gathering, but history will judge whether the larger aims and decisions were correct.


"I'm quite certain that there are going to be dissertations written about the mistakes of the Bush administration, and I will probably even oversee some of them when I go back to Stanford," Rice said.

Shorter Condi: "I'll be all snug and sinecured in an ivory tower by the time you finish counting all the dead. Oh, I'm sure."

(It's a cross-post puzzle...)
