So what would Condi Rice look like if she was young, sexy and talented? She might look something like Audra McDonald. Ms. McDonald, a three time Tony winner, starred in a recent Los Angeles production of the Weill/Brecht opera The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, one of the works of Brecht and Weill that drew the special ire of the Nazis before they rose to power. In that wig, Ms. McDonald bears a certain resemblance to Ms. Rice, except that Ms. McDonald has boobies and isn't afraid to show them.
So if some enterprising opera composer wants to make an epic work about the colossal goat fuck of a presidential administration we have now endured for seven years, the casting for the part of Condi Rice is pretty much locked up. Ms. McDonald has shown the physical resemblance and her willingness to play a whore on stage shows she has the right mental state to play Condi. The only problem I can see is this. With Ms. McDonald's great stage presence and powerful voice, it would be a shame to give her a role where all her dialogue is along the lines of "That's a great idea, boss! We should get on that right away!"
Here is a picture of Ms. McDonald out of the repressed little wig, with her handsome mane of curly hair framing her pretty face in a way that makes it look like she is actually proud of her African heritage, unlike some other people I have mentioned in this post.
Wait... Condi Rice is the only other person of African heritage I have mentioned in this post. Funny how that worked out.
