Colbert King had an interesting column Saturday linking Barbara Boxer’s Rice questioning with a pretty lousy Tom Oliphant caricature of Rice.
My disagreement with the Bush administration on Iraq has been spelled out in past columns. I’m also a member of an editorial board that has been critical of administration policies — and by extension, Rice — on several foreign policy fronts. For example, when it comes to opposing oppressive regimes, this administration, despite its soaring rhetoric, has come up way short. But characterize Condoleezza Rica as a presidential stooge? Count me out.
