I decided to wander over to the Huffungton Post this morning just to see what was going on. The very first sentence of actual text on the front page was from a blog entry by Nora Ephron:
"I met Condoleezza Rice last weekend. She was much prettier than I thought she was going to be."
It gets better (or worse depending on your point of view):
Condi was the hostess of the dinner, and she stood up to speak about each of the honorees. She was completely competent. She was, however, not at all funny. She tried to be, but she wasn't.
I wonder how Nora would feel if the shoe were on the other foot:
I read a blog entry by Nora Ephron today. Her picture was so tiny that I couldn't tell if she was good looking or not. I think she might have been trying to be funny, but I really couldn't tell. I guess that means she's not a very good writer. Maybe she should stick to hosting dinner parties, at which she professes to be an expert."
You have this post in triplicate...
Hey, some things are worth repeating :-)
Seriously though, this seems to be a blogger bug. Let me see what I can do...
No, seriously, Nora thought this was some sort of serious intellectual commentary on the corruption of Condi Rice's soul. Ephron knows that she can't actually talk down to Condi intellectually so she has to try and find another way to see if that works.
And in the alternate universe created by Arianna, it works.
Well put. Liberals don't understand why Rice remains popular in the country, but she does.
