You Had Me at Hello*

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice , left, looks on as President Bush holds a news conference on Monday, Aug. 7, 2006 in Crawford, Texas. Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spoke about the Mideast during a meeting with reporters at his Texas ranch. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)
Ahhh, after a tough day of clearing brush at the ranch, Doctor Ferragamo sent out the Condibot to make a live (or lifelike, at least) appearance at a special presser. Because, you know, people totally want to know what Condi and her friends think about stuff. So they just fill the Condibot's output content with vague yet reassuring non-statements and the proper worshipful gaze annnnnnd she's good to go!

Also, if you've been reading too many puff pieces profiles of Condi in places like Time Magazine and the Washington Post, just stare at this picture for about 40 seconds to reverse the deleterious effects:

You know.....the key to happiness in life is finding that one special/rather obscure political figure and then just stalking the h*ll out of them.....

Does that picture look like two crooks or what? Sometimes she looks frightening and he always looks the same, stupid.

He's trying to figure out what she just said. Looks like he's waiting for Mommy to finish speaking. (We'll leave Mammy out of this.)

OMG! Did you notice that Condi is listed on Vanity Fair's 2006 International Best Dressed List??? See vanityfair.com.

Used to love VF. Am terribly conflicted now.

Photo One: If I had an employee who looked at me that way in public, I'd fire her ass.
Photo Two: Alfred E. Newman much?

In the first picture she looks like she wants him dead. I giess the Condibot's powers don't include making other people's heads explode.
