I shouldn't expect the CBC to come to Condoleezza Rice' aid. They've got too many more important guests to which to cater: famously weird, marginally black, indicted-for-child-molestestation types, for example. And get a load of the subject to be discussed! There's more than one joke in there somewhere.
There are a few things worse than bad timing, but not many. Bad judgment would be counted in the 'worse things' number, however.
