Alarming Realization

I had a very discomfiting realization on the Metro this morning. I... I rather wish Condoleezza Rice would stop wearing long black coats, tall boots and dark sunglasses. You know that point, somewhere in the middle of season 2, when you realize that, despite his being an evil, murderous villain, you can't help finding Spike somewhat attractive?

Yeah. I don't think Dr. Rice is gonna be going on any quests to get her soul back, and suddenly becoming a good guy.

That gap between her front teeth and gangly general appearance will keep her from winning any hearts or souls. She's not quite an unmade bed, but there is room for a fair comparison nearby.

Well, I've always been less critical of little appearance flaws than you. And, regrettably, I kind of like gangly. But the evil is a turn off.

The WashPo fashion editor had a piece on that a while back...

Spike's prettier than Condi. ;)

But I take your point. Think of it as truth in advertising...

Sigh. Evil is just kinda hot, I guess.

Can we at least put a chip in her head? (Or has Cheney beat us to it?)

Hee! I have yet to see her actually strike a human being. Maybe Cheney's chip acts to repress the subject's conscience?

I had not noticed that Condi had decided to show off the Evil Within.
Thank you so much for pointing that out to me.

Lend me that salted flogger when you are done with it.

She facilitated some good progress in palestine this week, evil or no..

Well, that's good. I figure even a broken clock is right twice a day. And I am by no means demeaning her competence. Just her ethics.

(Hey, man. Hope you are doing well!)

I wonder if I am parsing this statement correctly. You mean, that attempted rape scene would have been less creepy if it had been Condi rather than Spike in it? Or simply that you would find Condi somehow less creepy if she attempted to rape Buffy?

Condi's fashion sense is erring a little on "The Matrix" side. Hmmmm.... Matirx, secret service dudes.... work the math the right way and yes, the Federal gubberment really IS a LARP...
