Simon Sez

Roger L. Simon knows the real reason the Dems raised a stink about Condoleeza Rice. They are worried about 2008. "I have had another thought about why Condi became such a lightening rod. The Dems are afraid of her as a presidential candidate in '08 and wanted to take her down a peg as soon as possible. After all, according to Forbes anyway, she is the most powerful woman in the world -- and that was before she was Sec'y of State (No. 2 - Wu Yu of the Chinese Politburo; No. 5 - Hillary Rodham Clinton; No. 10 - Carlton Firoina of Hewlett-Packard)."
This puts Simon out in nutcase territory with Dick Morris, who has predicted a Hillary V. Condi race in 2008, but was predicting that Sen. Clinton would be Howard Dean's running mate about a year ago.
I think it's time that Simon replace that Fedora hat he wears with one made of tin foil.

UPDATE: His comment section is even better:
If Condi Rice runs as merely the VP candidate in 2008---she should pick up a minimum of 20% of the black vote. That figure is enough to give the Democratic Party nightmares. Please note that President Bush won in November with less than 15% of this voting block.Condi Rice virtually guarantees the Republicans an easy lock on a minimum of 270 electoral votes. Is there also anyway the Democrats might continue to keep Pennsylvania in their column?
Here is my boring, conventional prediction: both parties nominate two white guys and the Democrats get about 90% of the black vote.

Ol' Roger is just creating his own reality, Clark.

"We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."It's all about facts on the ground, not your pesky old reality.
