Ya can’t make this stuff up.

ANDREA MITCHELL: I think this had become sort of an impossible challenge for her to be confirmed, that she realized that, the White House realized it as well. I think they know they are on good political solid ground, as you were just pointing out. This is not going to help Republicans at all, the fact that a woman and a woman of color has been forced out of a confirmation process even before she was nominated.

Yes, Andrea, it was all about color. The color red, actually, which was bled by the four Americans whose deaths Rice repeatedly blamed on a movie.

The last Republican Secretary of State was also named Rice, and was a “woman of color,” Andrea. Is there any chance you’ll ever notice that?
