Condoleeza Rice and KISS Team Up

Today from Scott Thill of Wired.com:

Kiss_condi_2 In what has to be a sign of some sort of apocalypse, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice took time off from the war on terror to enlist in the KISS Army during a stopover in Stockholm for a conference on Iraq.

Can Condi help this Army’s chances of being greeted as liberators? Probably not.

But at least she got to spend what the Associated Press called a “late-night encounter” with Gene Simmons and walk away without becoming one of his thousands of bedded women, dignity intact — despite a photograph that may some day rival one of Richard Nixon and Elvis for head-scratching “What the hell led up to that?!” honors.

“I was thrilled,” the classically trained, piano prodigy Rice told reporters. “It was really fun to meet Kiss and Gene Simmons,” she added, noting that she has yet to catch the band whose fan club she just joined in, er, the flesh.

That’s debatable. While in Australia in 2004, the Israel-born Simmons notoriously slammed Islam, saying “This is a vile culture and if you think for a second that it’s going to just live in the sands of God’s armpit you’ve got another thing coming…They want to come and live right where you live and they think that you’re evil.”

That less-than-diplomatic remark may mean that you’re more likely to see a picture of Rice in Simmons’ hotel room than Gene at Foggy Bottom.

Wow…never thought that they would look better WITH the make-up on. Maybe we should send them in au-natural to scare Bin Laden out of his cave. 😉
