Comments (2)

The old white men of the GOP had all the answers on Nov. 6 too. Seems like a good time to start listening for new young voices…like Susan Rice.

If a male UN ambassador had said ” this is crap” or “this is bull****”, would that have been worth mentioning in an article about him?

The UN is apparently NOT a family picnic (from what I hear). So judging our ambassor by her “sharp tongue”, rather than her effectiveness at achieving tangible results for the US is a bit ridiculous….And then raising the objections of the Russian diplomat (you know, our best friend who typically supports our positions and doesn’t work very hard to block every bit of good we try to do at the UN) as a negative for Rice – honestly.

As a woman, I really do not appreciate the tone of this article at all. I’m sure you can make your points about the challenges of her nomination hearings without the misogynistic undertones.
