Congratulations to the Class of 2006


I hope you were inspired by the speeches you heard at your graduation ceremonies. Will Farrell wowed 'em at Harvard. He said that he graduated from the School of Hard Knocks, and that their colors were black and blue. He slays me.

But he wasn't even the funniest comic genius to give a graduation address in New England. Over at Boston College, they featured the comic stylings of Condoleeza Rice. Talk about funny!

Condeleeza Rice has been wowing them in the White House and breaking them up in Congress. She is the master of the slyly straight face, making you wonder if it is possible that she actually said that.

Consider this little shtick, delivered by the woman who broke through the glass ceiling to become a yes-man in the administration that brooks no dissent:
There is nothing wrong with holding an opinion. And holding it passionately. But at those times when you are absolutely sure you are right, go find somebody who disagrees.
Close your eyes, and imagine Condi trying that one out on W, and him laughing his ass off.

Now, that's funny. That shit on Meet the Press was just a warm-up!

“… and tell ’em Big Mitch sent ya!”
