I don't want Condi in my RPGs

Apropos the recent threads on "sticky" PCs...

Well, the President's news conference has convinced me that I wouldn't want Condi Rice as a roleplayer in one of my games? Why?

As quoted by Calpundit, Kevin Drum:

THE PRESIDENT: ....her job is also to deal interagency and to help unstick things that may get stuck, is the best way to put it. She's an unsticker. And -- is she listening? Okay, well, she's doing a fine job.


Yes, its silly, I know. It's also silly we have a President that invents more words than Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes.


Update: I found a transcript of the News Conference online. And Liz is right, he dodges the question just before the "unsticker" comment:

Thank you, Mr. President. You recently put Condoleezza Rice, your National Security Advisor, in charge of the management of the administration's Iraq policy. What has effectively changed since she's been in charge? And the second question, can you promise a year from now that you will have reduced the number of troops in Iraq?

THE PRESIDENT: The second question is a trick question, so I won't answer it. The first question was Condoleezza Rice. Her job is to coordinate interagency. She's doing a fine job of coordinating interagency. She's doing -- the role of the National Security Advisor is to not only provide good advice to the President, which she does on a regular basis -- I value her judgment and her intelligence -- but her job is also to deal interagency and to help unstick things that may get stuck, is the best way to put it. She's an unsticker. And -- is she listening? Okay, well, she's doing a fine job.
