I find myself increasngly irritated by the media's attention on Rice's "fashion sense". She's on a whirlwind tour of the world's capitals, and is holding her own, and although I don't agree with many of the policies she advocates, as a woman, I find all the comments on her "appearance" demeaning. I'm probably as bad as the media, as I'd get rid of the "flip", and go for a tapered nape (I've got "problem hair", too), and wince at some of the shoes she wears (don't her feet hurt?), but find that few media outlets would spend as much time commenting on a male Secretary of State's wardrobe. Is anybody else, regardless of partisan positions, disgusted at the way she's being treated by the media, simply because she's female? I love the way she's managed to neutralize Wolfowitz and Bolton - Go, Condi, Go!
