Rice In La-La Land

I used to have a lot of respect for Condoleeza Rice but she seems to have drifted off into a fantasy realm lately. Perhaps she's been at the State Department too long.

“We expressed our concern about events on the ground in the Palestinian territories. Obviously innocent people are being caught up in this violence and it needs to stop,” she said.

“That said, there is simply no reason to avoid the subject of how we get to a Palestinian state,” Rice said. “The Palestinian people have waited a long time for a state and the Israeli people have waited a long time for the peace and security that would come from having a democratic neighbor.

A democratic neighbour? Doesn't she remember the last set of democratic elections, you know, the ones that put Hamas into power? Sure doesn't sound like a recipe for peace and security to me.
