Bet your bottom dollar that Condi will take an hour introducing herself
That leaves 1 and 1/2 hours to discuss her 9/11 lies. Can't even scratch the surface in that amount of time. The Commission should not have agreed to this 2 and 1/2 time limit. :mad:

1. She will give a 20 minute opening statement, as I understand.
I must admit she is the queen of the "filibuster" answer, though.

6. Good to hear she's only allowed 20 minutes!
:thumbsup: I really hope we get some hardball questions.

2. even so, it's all public and she's under oath
There's no way to guarantee she won't try to stonewall, but if she does, the whole world can see it live on TV.

3. If we had a chairman with balls..
He'd stop her 20+ minute preface speech 30 seconds into it and tell her she can read that on Faux News anytime, now onto the questions...

5. Or, at the very least, stop her occasionally for questions
as is the practice with the Supreme Court.

But it won't happen, I'm afraid. Maybe one or two members will sarcastically thank her for finally finding the time to talk to the commission, but other than that, I expect little of note from her testimony.

She'll carry the Bush Did All He Could banner to her grave, I suspect.

4. She will be shaking her head so much
she will need a neck brace when she's done.
