In this photo provided by the White House, President Bush meets with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and National Security Advisor Steve Hadley, right, at the Bush Ranch to discuss the Middle East, Saturday, Aug. 5, 2006, in Crawford, Texas. Bush has signed off on a draft U.N. Security Council resolution aimed at ending fighting in the Mideast, his spokesman said Saturday. (AP Photo/White House, Eric Draper)Have you ever seen such a fine shot of fake working? And look! Hadley's wearing casual clothes, something I'm pretty sure we've never seen before. He looks thrillingly comfortable in civvies, am I right? I'm sure they've really been studying hard during their working vacation at the Bush Ranch, don't you? I bet Condi, especially, has cleared just TONS of brush so far in between helicopter rides to Neiman's in Houston.
Also, to continue the theme of working super hard, they transmitted footage of the Condibot to Meet the Press today:

(AP Photo/NBC News Alex Wong)I watched and let me tell you, the Condibot functioned without a hitch, never straying from its programmers' talking points and unflappably optimistic. Good ol' Condibot! It can take a tough Tim Russert licking and keeps on ticking!
OMG, I almost forgot to pass along the Condibot's pearls of wisdom this weekend! OK, one, there will be an Israel/Lebanon cease fire any day now and two, Iraq won't become an Iran-like theocracy. Neato, Condi!
