Today's scribble plays off a rumor circulating that Condoleezza Rice was at dinner when she misspoke per the scribble above. Since it's unconfirmed, I have no idea if the matter really happened. Still, I think misspeaking is laugh-out-loud stuff which is why I scribbled this. When something unintended comes out of my mouth, I'm embarrassed at the moment, but a day or so later, I'm rolling on the floor laughing. How could I have said that? The old colloquial explanation is that her mouth got ahead of her brain.

My information for this scribble came from an April 20 Washington Post column by Dan Froomkin. Here's the column quoted in part under the headline "Married to Her Job?": "Deborah Schoenman in New York Magazine's Intelligencer column describes a tale making the rounds about national security adviser Condoleezza Rice: ' At a recent dinner party hosted by New York Times D.C. bureau chief Philip Taubman and his wife, Times reporter Felicity Barringer, and attended by Arthur Sulzberger Jr., Maureen Dowd, Steven Weisman, and Elisabeth Bumiller, Rice was reportedly overheard saying, 'As I was telling my husb --' and then stopping herself abruptly, before saying, 'As I was telling President Bush.' Jaws dropped, but a guest says the slip by the unmarried politician, who spends weekend with the president and his wife, seemed more psychologically telling than incriminating.' "
