  • Madame Albright

    I heard Mort Kondracke recount this story live yesterday, but in case you haven't hear it, OpinionJournal provides the following retelling:

    According to journalist Morton Kondracke, Albright was in the green room at Fox News Channel yesterday when "She said, 'Do you suppose that the Bush administration has Osama bin Laden hidden away somewhere and will bring him out before the election?' " Although Albright now says the remark was a "joke," Kondracke says that at the time, "she was not smiling," and other witnesses back him up: "Two makeup artists who prep the guests before their appearances also reported that Albright did not ask her question in a joking manner," Fox reports.

    Utterly amazing, eh? And while Kondracke has gotten quite a bit more moderate in recent years, he is hardly a right-winger.
