    More like a china-Woman in a bull shop…
    [And I don’t mean in the sense she’s fragile or from China.]
    [And I do mean ‘bull shop’ in every sense.]

    People sure do get one person’s case and stay there.

    The master has returned. Hooray!

    Her statements about Benghazi seem to me to be of of little moment but there are legitimate concerns about her ability to be cool-headed, measured and… diplomatic.

    She’s not a bull in a China shop… maybe she’s wearing a red dress, and the dumb bulls in the GOP are the ones seeing red. This is such a non-issue compared to the other Rice’s “the smoking gun will be a mushroom cloud.”

    I think what matters is that she could hold her own with the bulls that are already there.

    But seriously folks (9/12), if this is the best you have to offer in the past two months, then why bother viewing you on Go-Comics?

    So there they sit in their easychairs, having voted to cut the State Dept’s budget, with perfect 20/20 hindsight criticizing a statement made with the latest info the CIA could muster, and they expect us NOT to see the naked politics involved in their witchhunt?
    Huh…they really DO think we’re stupid…

    Ms Rice’s statements were in the same line as Colin Powell’s for WMD in Iraq but then we have forgotten that haven’t we.

    The bull in the china shop image probably is deeper than what she said on Sept. 15. She may be a little too outspoken for Oliphant’s taste in a Secretary of State. I think McCain’s problem with her is personal and goes back to what she said about his trip to Iraq in 2008 “…strolling around the market in a flak jacket” and another time (also during the 2008 campaign) calling him “a dangerous “shoot from the hip leader.”

    @Gary Williams

    Exactly right. Apart from her qualifications on other points to be confirmed, to focus so vehemently on this issue shows how small-minded and crotchety McCain has become. He and a few others are like the villains in Frank Capra movies.
    He must still be fuming that Sarah Palin had to save his last re-election bid. I would have voted for him in 2000, and nearly did in 2008. I’m glad I didn’t. How do people in Arizona view him? All I know is what I read and see on TV.
    Politicians are seen one way in the national spotlight, but their home-state constituents know better how they really are. For instance, our senators look really noble on the network news, but we here think they are doofuses.
    My brother who lives in Texas says that many people there were astonished that Bush was elected, and that Perry got as far as he did.
    That said, like everybody else here, I’m glad Oliphant is back. His characters are drawn anatomically well with just enough distortion. His drawings have continued a standard that I fear is weakening as editorial cartoons become childish and less artistic.
    As my favorites fade, I’m probably becoming crotchety, too.

    For those who question Ms. Rice’s credentials: what’s your alternative? Surely not John Bolton.

    It has now been admitted she had additional information she received from the CIA etc and knew what she was being told was a lie. She lied to protect her boss and win the election. If she didn’t know then she is incompetent and should be fired.

    BTW, incompetent is not a sexist nor racist word. Anyone who thinks so is a blustering fool. Bush was regularly called incompetent.

    @Gary Williams

    You are obviously a racist.

    It really rankles that McCain is involved in this stupid, non-issue. He was the person who was willing to foist Sarah Palin onto the country one heartbeat away from being President. Can you imagine President Sarah Palin? As far as I’m concerned he should resign and go into hiding in shame. And Obama was accused of “hating America” by the right wing loonies! Has anyone done anything as hateful to this country in recent memory as putting us in the possible position as having to wake up and face President Palin?
