Condi Rice for Veep? Bull Shiitake Mushrooms

If you head over to Drudge you will find that there are rumors swirling that Condi Rice is at the top of the short list to be the Vice Presidential nominee.I don’t know who is hitting the crack rock tonight in the rumor mill, but bull shiitake mushrooms.Condelizza Rice is pro-abortion.She worked for George Bush for eight years.In those eight years at National Security and then at State, our relations with Russia deteriorated though she was an expert in that field. Central and South America went to pot as well, the ramifications of which still have not been sorted out. She was one of George Bush’s most trusted advisors and her supporters would have you believe that everything bad that happened, happened because of Cheney and Rumsfeld.The problem is that this ignores the Americas and Russia, areas where State played a big role.As Toby Harnden points out on Twitter

Condi Rice would be insane VP pick – pro-choice, never run for office, never debated, 8 years w Bush, no domestic policy or exec experience

Pretty much.But hey, this is a great way to get the conversation moving past the Bain Capital nonsense the Obama camp is pushing and get the focus back on Romney for his veep pick. Well played in that regard. But really, we’re going to buy these rumors?Few saw Sarah Palin coming. Many have speculated on Condi Rice, which I think makes it less likely. I don’t even think this is a serious leak from Team Romney. It’s just silly.
