Condi Rice: From GOP Secretary of State to NFL Cleveland Browns Head Coach?

Well, didn’t expect to see THIS today…

For some reason, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has been mentioned as the next head coach of the NFL’s Cleveland Browns.

Rice, who served under President George W. Bush, currently serves on the College Football Playoff selections committee.

She was the first black female secretary of state, as well as the first female national security adviser.

Might she become the first female head coach?

From Daily Wire:

The Cleveland Browns, now on the hunt for a new head coach, announced last week that they’d be open to hiring a woman for the coveted NFL job, and reportedly they already have a woman in mind: Bush Administration Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

ESPN reports that Rice has made the “short list” of people the Browns are considering interviewing for the head coach position, recently vacated by Hue Jackson, who won only three of the team’s last 40 games. Right now, the Browns are operating with an interim head coach — one of the team’s defensive coordinators — until they can find a more suitable replacement.

More from ESPN:

Rice, 64, is a lifelong Browns fan, a love she developed from watching Cleveland’s games with her father at their home in Birmingham, Alabama. She attends some of their games and was spotted on the field with owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam before Cleveland’s game in Oakland on Sept. 30.

[…]

A potential interview hardly means the Browns will hire Rice, but they are interested in talking to her about the job and seeing what she could bring to the position and the organization, a source said.

“She’s an amazing person,” one Browns source told ESPN.

The Browns have since released a statement.

It doesn’t say Rice has been ruled out, per se:

Rice released her own statement:

I love my Browns — and I know they will hire an experienced coach to take us to the next level.
On a more serious note, I do hope that the NFL will start to bring women into the coaching profession as position coaches and eventually coordinators and head coaches. One doesn’t have to play the game to understand it and motivate players. But experience counts — and it is time to develop a pool of experienced women coaches.
BTW — I’m not ready to coach but I would like to call a play or two next season if the Browns need ideas! And at no time will I call for a “prevent defense.”

If, for some reason, the Browns do hire Rice, in whatever capacity, you can be certain one side of the political aisle won’t be pleased.

Never mind the fact that Rice would shatter all kinds of ceilings as a woman in the male-dominated world of sports.

Some will view her as only a Republican, unfit for the position.

Any guesses on who those people might be?

Francis Filets Critics, Says Church’s Haters Related to Satan Himself

Until Pope Francis can muster some results, his words should be carefully critiqued.

Published

Pope Francis

Amid all of the depraved and gratuitously horrific sins occurring just under his nose, Pope Francis has been his church’s own worst enemy.

His response to the ritualistic and habitual sexual abuse of children being committed by thousands of Catholic Priests the world over has been categorically unacceptable.  In fact, the pontiff has, on several occasions, lashed out at those who criticize the church’s rampant and ongoing pedophilia problem.

His latest tantrum included some childish name-calling, in which Francis related his critics to the devil himself.

While addressing pilgrims from the Italian diocese of Benevento on Wednesday, Francis said people cannot live their whole lives constantly accusing the church of wrongdoings. He referenced the Bible and rhetorically asked who the office of the “Great Accuser” belongs to.

“I’m sorry, I did not understand … I cannot hear well … the devil!” the Pope said, according to ANSA. “And those who spend their lives accusing, accusing and accusing are — I won’t say children, because the devil doesn’t have any — but they are the friends, cousins and relatives of the devil.”

The Pope added that when things aren’t right, people have to report the defects in order to correct wrongs that were committed. However, he said that when defects are reported, they’re made known and the person loves the church

This isn’t the first time that Francis has chosen to on the offensive rather than address the issue.

For all of the pontiff’s vast pontification on the subject of Catholic Church abuses, there has been very little corresponding action.  Record numbers of church members are coming forward to tell their tales of assault, molestation, and rape while the Pope himself takes to labeling his enemies as denizens of the nether.

Until Pope Francis can muster some results, his words should be carefully critiqued.

PETA Launches Anti-Burger Hollywood Campaign for Attention

PETA is a marketing company who kills thousands of animals per year, so, somehow their advice on where to eat after The Oscars is important.

Published

PETA

While many see People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals, PETA, as a mere pest in our popular culture, there are far more sinister realities that should be discussed.

For instance, the fact that PETA does an absolutely abhorrent job as rescuing cats and dogs – something that Humane Societies have perfected over the course of their existence.

Worse still, the main focus of PETA has been marketing and brand promotion – not the treatment of animals in the least bit.  Their constant, grating stunts do very little to save critters whatsoever, while doing an excellent job of reminding us that PETA still exists…for some reason.

Their latest piggybacking marketing scam has the disgraced organization riding the coattails of The Oscars and one of the nation’s most popular burger joints.

Animal rights group PETA is urging Hollywood to skip the growing tradition of hitting an In-N-Out Burger after the Oscars because the fast food joints sell meat.

It has become the “in” thing to hit the In-N-Out drive through after Hollywood’s big awards shows. Indeed, a recent article in People featured a photo spread of the stars visiting the burger chain, according to Hollywood Reporter.

But PETA is highly annoyed with the burger-eating trend. The animal rights group has sent letters to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars to urge them to skip their new In-N-Out habit.

Of course, PETA doesn’t want us all to realize that farmers who grow the food for vegetarians exterminate entire acres of animals in order to put food on the table for the rest of the nation.
