REUTERS/David Silverman/PoolWow, this is as much sustained Condiaction as we've ever had, isn't it, Pony Pals™? She was going to go to Lebanon today but, you know, decided not to for some reason. Somebody said the Lebanese didn't want her to come, but can you imagine? Not wanting Condi to grace your country? OMG, I don't think so. Meanwhile:

At least 50 people, including scores of children, were killed Sunday in an Israeli airstrike on this southern Lebanon village _ the deadliest attack in 19 days of fighting. Infuriated Lebanese officials canceled a planned visit by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, adding a major new hurdle to efforts to bring a cease fire. (AP Photo/Nasser Nasser)
Anyway, back to Condi, because, like, dead children are a total bring-down. Do you like her beautiful periwinkle suit? Also, please notice that she's wearing those gold accessories that she should have worn with her exciting Malaysian party dress the other day. Oh, Condi, you had them with you the whole time!
UPDATE: Um, hello Metafilter kids! My goodness, there's a lot of you. But... how should I put this... I think maybe some of you need to check your clogged satire filters.
