6. Please do; that'll waste lots of time and energy
Personally, I hope she shows her trembling teary-eyed face on a regular basis trying to justify the uglinesses she's supported.

She is a disgusting organism: crying for approval from those who merely use her, she is the mirror image of Powell. No matter how good a figure skater or pianist or russian scholar she may become, daddy and her other daddys will never approve of her. She is a disturbingly sad character. My empathy for her wracks me, even though she's brought forth and sustained so much death and evil that she deserves every bit of the recrimination and ignoring that will be her future lot.

What a sad and lonely person; spending all her life trying to please her superiors and getting so close to true power. Yet at every turn with the brutal Bush Cabal, she's been used for their advantage and left to hang in the wind. She is one of the many casualties of the abortive Bush attempt at restoring monarchy; although she's much less morally ugly than the Cheneys, Bakers and Rumsfelds of the world, she's filthy and a toady to power that will never accept her. Like Powell, she's sacrificed what little moral capital she had on the altar of duplicity and greed.

She is sad, lonely and will be destroyed, ignored and ridiculed. For someone whose whole life is an aching for the approval of her superiors, this will be a cruel and horrible demise. Unlike the relish I take in the downfall of other assholes within this selfish regime of kleptocrats, for her I feel sadness. Empathy is the Achilles' heel of liberals; I'm a softy. Don't give me too much credit though, because I will continue to hound her to destruction and that's not a great testament to my decency.

Morally ugly, she stands as a shining example of selfishness and the attempt of currying favor with the ruling class. She will never get what she wants, and she will be left bereft and lonesome.

Sadly, I get little pleasure in this. I'd like to revel in the demise of those who've fucked the entire human race for personal gain, but in her case, there's a bitter taste left in the mouth.
Rumsfeld's downfall, Cheney's ruin and Junior's embarrassment bring me joy, since they're such vicious raptors, but her fall just leaves me disgusted and sad. Powell's twisting in the wind as he tries to retrace his steps just leaves me silent; his calumny is obvious and what few moments of decency he's had simply stain his complicity as so much worse.

History has already spoken. For the little girl who has spent her whole life aching for the approval of daddy and surrogate daddies, she leaves the stage as a failure. Nobody likes her. The crying need for a pat on the head and a hug will never be given. This simply makes me sad. Still, she deserves it; something's missing in this person: an ability to make human connections and an understanding of herself. The damage she's done to the world is literally incalculable.

Shame on you, Ms. Rice, shame on you.
