The Kissinger Spit-Take
Philip Shenon, of the New York Times Washington Bureau has a book out Tuesday called “The Commission“. Think Progress has a great tidbit about how Condi Rice (aka “Kinda-Lies-A-lot”) was more interested in being a Bush confidante than an advisor. I also like this item:
Mr. Shenon depicts the widows of 9/11 victims, a group that called itself the Jersey Girls, meeting Henry A. Kissinger, President Bush’s choice to be chairman of the 9/11 Commission, in the posh offices of Mr. Kissinger’s international consulting firm in New York. When one of the Jersey Girls asks Mr. Kissinger if he has any clients named bin Laden, Mr. Kissinger spills his coffee and nearly falls off his sofa. “It’s my bad eye,” Mr. Kissinger explains, as the women rush to clean up the mess – “like good suburban moms,” Mr. Shenon says one widow recalls. The next morning Mr. Kissinger telephoned the White House to resign from the commission.
Kinda like a comedic spit-take.Click here for reuse options!
