Condi pulls a Cheney
At least she didn't shoot a man in the face.
But former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice still had her own projectile-to-face moment a-la Dick Cheney this week, when she accidentally hit a woman in the face with a golf ball. Competing in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on Thursday, Condi shanked a shot on the sixth hole into the gallery, where it hit a spectator on her forehead.
The woman reportedly suffered concussion-like symptoms but didn't need stitches - a fate far better than the man that Cheney infamously shot (but didn't kill) in the face while they were hunting in 2006.
"Did I hit you?" Rice asked her victim, according to The New York Times. "It was a bad shot. I'm really sorry."
Rice, who was briefly floated as a possible running mate for Mitt Romney last year, also happens to be the first woman ever admitted the Augusta National golf club last year.

1. I have to admit, I forgot all about Condie.
Now that I am reminded, we all better remember that if Jeb is nominated and picked her as his VP choice it would make a fomridable ticket if anyone but Hillary45 is the nominee.
(because the people that would vote for Jeb would vote for Condie).
Question-if Condie didn't want to be in the public eye, why would she be in the Pebble Beach pro-Am?
