Department of Ham-Fisted Allegory

Two things happened to me since last night. One: I watched 24 (of course). Two: I read about Secretary of State Rice's visit to Paris, which included a picture of her stepping from an airplane looking ever-so slightly power mad.

And it occurred to me: do you think it's a coincidence that one of the characters in this season of 24 is a relatively young black woman who wears snappy suits and is evil, conniving and power hungry? Just as Ms Rice is clawing her way into the cabinet? Hmmm? Mmm-hmm? Hmmm?

Ooh, 24, you're SO contraversial!
