February 22, 2007
Condy is one
of my favorite politicians, scholars and women in the globe. She
is a self-built woman. She is a typical strong female who climbed
the success ladder and is where she is only due to her worthiness
and skills. Let us review certain important dates of her life.

The Up-Beat Cony
R. Dr. Rice appeared on Meet the Press with Tim Russert, where she
stated she has no intention of running for President. What a shame,
I hope she changes her mind because she is the most qualified person
to run for 2008 US Elections.

at an international speech
powerful speech by Condy
Let's see if
I can add another group to the list of my enemies!
Let me be frank with yous! I do not have much respect for HouseWives!
I enjoy career women. I enjoy highly educated, sophisticated, talented,
extremely intelligent, very powerful and knowledgeable career women.
I love strong women. Rocket Scientists, Brain Surgeons, Aerospace
Engineers, Aeronautic Engineers, Computer Scientists, Marine Biologists,
Astronomers, and indeed Secretaries of State would do!
Let me be frank
with you. The only thing "Desperate House Wives" are good
! If you know what I mean!
and W, what a team!
Well, what can
I say? Even though she is not really pretty, yet there is something
about her that turns me on! Powerful women have that effect on me!
would like to see Condy run in 2008, but I doubt if the "Ignorant
America" is ready for a "Black Female Conservative"
president! Ignorant "white racists" (on the right) and
ignorant "welfare-state liberal Negroes" (on the left)
will both bash her! But she is the perfect example of the powerful
and intelligent black woman, and the new face of GOP. What say you?
One thing is
for sure that women like Condy do not grow on trees, so we must
appreciate these ladies.
More power to
Condy and I hope she runs for 2008.
