U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (L) shakes hands with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Borys Tarasyuk as part of the United Nations General Assembly, in New York September 25, 2006. REUTERS/Chip East (UNITED STATES)Have the programmers of the Condibot gotten sensitive to their possible overreliance on the classic matching-armchairs-style photo-op? They tried out an interesting new pose today, as seen above, and I don't think it works very well, although it's not without its charms. I like, for instance, the slavishly perfect rows of water bottles, which reveals the shot at the bottom to be slightly earlier than the one up top, where the alignment has been spoiled by selfishly thirsty diplomats who know nothing of the beauty of symmetry, a necessary quality for an optimal Condishot. But the whole setup is just too much, and too mentally taxing for Condi, because it requires to her to lean forward, turn her head, shake hands and smile all in one moment. The Condibot just wasn't created for that kind of extensive multitasking. Please, just sit her in a chair, OK?
I'm officially calling this radical new photo-op configuration a flop. Why mess with the classics? Look, if Condi isn't in a set of matching armchairs, behind a podium, or at the foot of an airplane stairway, does she still make a sound?
