¡Cuidado! ¡Piso Mojado!

I mentioned last night that there were zillions of pics of Condi's trip to the Middle East, but they were all boring. Well, almost all. So what's going on here? Pre-podium calesthenics? Tzipi pointing out a noteworthy new Condishoe purchase? Condi reading her cheat sheet from somebody else's hand? Condibot startup routine? Or is it Middle Eastern socio-political concepts explained through interpretive dance? Heck, it wouldn't be the first time.

I don't understand it; is the Associated Press really this desperate for Condiproduct?

It is a new interpretative dance for "I am falling... in love!" Inter-racial, mixed religion, same sex lovin', what a beautiful thing.

Ha ha! Well, that's pretty old by now, but I missed it. That's pretty funny!

Lol, I really do love this photo for some reason! I think it's the combo of Condi's facial expression, and just the random hand that seemingly belongs to no one of importance...mainly it's Condi's expression though!

What a cute couple?

Condi made a surprise visit to the green zone in Iraq today. You gotta get a picture of her getting off the plane with her bullet proof vest on. So very chic and attractive. I'm sure she only wore it for style since we are so winning the war and all.

Is she trying to pinch her bottom?

The red-sleeved woman off to the left is sternly commanding, "Condi! Spit out that gum!" while Tzipi is quickly interjecting, "Here, here, in the trash can!"

I think they're all trying to be ninjas. Condi is going to grab that knife-hand strike at the last moment and twist off a finger on the Red Ninja's hand. Tzipi (hee hee!) is in the middle of some cartwheels across the room, and when she gets to the Red Ninja she's going to lock its head in a scissor-hold with her legs (while she's standing on her hands).

Ninjaleezza is then going to grab the American flag and swing it around her body faster and faster and then impale the Red Ninja like she's a half dozen Marines and the Red Ninja is a hill in Iwo Jima.

After that, Condi and Tzipi will have a tea party! A ninja tea party. What fun!

All the pictures with Condi and Tzipi that you have shown us have a spontaneity, a carefree quality, a spark about them that I think needs to be addressed by you, Princess. There is something going on with these 2 and your readers need to know what it is!

That's an aide catching the drool that falls trhough the teeth gaps.

Tzipi is clearly trying to fire up the Condibot by pulling on her cord, much like how you'd start a lawn mower.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Nah...Tzipi is giving Condi a low five.

I just love Tzipi Livni. She's the greatest! By the way, Tzipi and Condi, by the latter's own admission in writing, are good friends. Hence the carefree quality, I guess.
