I believe she had a sip from Bush’s Cup o’ Stupid Noodles before this interview, Rice likens Iraq and Civil War critics
Rice then offered a parallel between critics of the administration’s Iraq policies and “people who thought it was a mistake to fight the Civil War (in this country) to its end and to insist that the emancipation of slaves would hold.”
“I’m sure that there were people who said, “why don’t we get out of this now, take a peace with the South, but leave the South with slaves.”
Also seen at BET and Huffington Post. I offer no opinion on her views, merely an observation that it probably wasn’t the best statement to make in an interview for a magazine aimed primarily at African-American women.
