Canadian Prime Minister says, "No defense, please-- we're Canadians"; High school principal requires plunging necklines for
females; Washington Post says Condoleeza Rice exudes "sex and power."
Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin announced
that Canada will insist on being excluded from the missile-defense system being developed by the
United States. Martin said Canada's reason for such decision was the desire to avoid
participation in a system that would lead to an "arms race." In a related
story, Prime Minister Martin also announced Canada's request to be excluded from the Pacific Rim
Tsunami Warning system out of a desire to avoid participating in a system that would lead to more
reports say that a high-school principal ordered the yearbook editor to remove the senior
picture of a female student who wore the tuxedo top prescribed for males rather than the
"drape" and "beads" prescribed for females. The student, whom the report
described as a "self-proclaimed lesbian," said she preferred not to pose in a drape that
would "expose her chest." Denying that the girl's sexual orientation was the real
reason for ordering removal of the picture, the principal explained that what motivated his decision
was the desire to protect the traditional values exemplified by plunging necklines for
females. Of course, if the principal were really literate-- i.e., a regular reader of
the New York Times and Washington Post-- he would have learned -- as exemplified by
the following story-- know that long coats and high boots rather than plunging necklines exude
The Washington Post published an article
asserting that "Condoleeza Rice's coat and boots speak of sex and power." Another
article in the same issue of the Post lamented the tendency of the British press to engage in
"tabloid journalism" obsessing over the attire of various members of the royal
family. When reporters asked Dr. Rice why she had suddenly begun wearing knee-high boots she
explained it this way: "Everyone knows that it's quite foggy at Foggy Bottom, so no one
should be surprised that one would need a full-length coat to work there, but few people know that
most of the fog is caused by methane rising from the deep layer of fertile material that comprises
the Bottom at Foggy Bottom."
Condi, whose long coat and boots
were said by the Post to exude
my lusting to flex
both "power and sex"
to dazzle those Old-Europe dudes.
the reason I need
a long coat and boots to my knees
is Fog at the Bottom
where layers have gotten
not only quite fertile but deep.
the folks who perceive
my long-coat and knee-boots to be
the way that I dress
for "power and sex"
must never have seen the real me.
smart women needn't be nude
for "power and sex" to exude,
if seeking to flex
my "power and sex"
a scantier outfit I'd use.
so, for this slide-show I've written
this lim'rick for those who are smitten
by needs to observe
attire I'd prefer
when "power and sex" is my mission.
"power" I dress to convey
a stately cerebral cachet,
but if I would flex
my weapons of sex,
the next frame shows what I'd display.
soon-- a music-video featuring Condoleeza Rice wearing her long coat and high boots to play the
piano while standing and simultaneously singing Nancy Sinatra's 1960's hit song, "These Boots
Are Made for Walking."
