Howling Into the Wind

The Madeline Albright Reputation Resurrection Tour continues, with a stopover at the Aspen Institute. The wholly uncritical response she no doubt got at this liberal think-tank is matched only by the wholly uncritical reporting.

Albright continues to receive a fawning media reception despite her almost complete substantive irrelevance. It's instructive to compare the vacancy of her speeching with the weight of Henry Kissinger's, although he's been out of office forover 25 years at this point.

The article notes that "Albright, the first female secretary of state and the highest-ranking woman in the history of American government, was known for wearing brooches that were said to reflect her attitude: A snake for discussing Hussein, an eagle for some other foreign officials." Nominations are being accepted for Albright's own avatar.
