Never Send to Know for Whom the Bell Tolls; It Tolls for Jack Straw



An anonymous commenter just pointed out that Great Britain's cabinet reshuffle claimed among its victims Condibuddy Jack Straw, so let's all have a moment of silence for the man our diplomatic princess seemed to love the most, and let's all take a moment to remember all those good times.

Who's that serving tea behind him, a matador?
I see Jack is having water. Wonder if he has a drinking problem?

Ah Jack! I've always had a soft spot for him, I support the same football/soccer team as him...not sure if that's good or not...

I'll miss him, though not as much as I suspect Condi will, especially once she meets the new foreign sec.

Look at that sweet face. He's too nice for politics.

Admit it, PSP...you have a little thing for Jack yourself, don't you.

I just had this amazing reality T.V. show idea. Sorta . . .Real World/This Old House style. We have MTV build an amazingly fabulous condo in the middle of Fortress Green Zone in Iraq. Then we stick a bunch of SecDefs in there from around the world and watch the soap opera unfold. (Who do you think will steal Condi's hair products?) Every now and again, someone is voted out and replaced with someone else. Heartache, heartbreak, and occasionally heart attacks - its Real World right smack dab in the center of Baghdad.

I'd watch it!

'cuse me. SecStates! But if Rummy wants to join and throws a hissy fit we might let him in for the extra soap opera value.

You wait till you meet his replacement, she is the ex environment minister (and like Condi the first female foreign secretary) and has an obsession with caravans.
