How 'Bout a Mid-Day Condi Break?

Oh Condi, how I love you (obvs, duh) during the slow start to what promises to be a slow news week. I mean, I'm sorry, but I don't consider Black Friday™ and Cyber Monday™ recaps to be real news, OK? So anyway, like, the world is totally exploding, so that means paaaaaarty for Condi, right? Right:

Um, is frisky Condi goosing that guy on the right or what? Clearly an awesome time is being had by all, because you know why? Press conferences have the best canap├ęs, and it's all just cocktail chatter to these folks anyway.

Condi Rice Takes Up Golf

By Ronald Kessler

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice dominates the world stage, and she is consistently rated the most admired woman in America; yet little is known about her personal life.

Recently, Rice was at Camp David for a weekend when President Bush invited her and other friends to play golf. She wasn't very good at it but continued to practice after everyone had left. Within a few weeks, Rice had signed up to take golf lessons from a pro.

... Having interviewed her twice, I've found Rice to be even prettier, more charming, and more composed than she appears on TV. Rice served on the board of Chevron and made more than $250,000 by investing in Chevron stock. She buys eight pairs of Ferragamo shoes at a time. Every Saturday, she has a manicure at the salon in her Watergate apartment.

Rice maintains constant eye contact, gesturing with her hands as she makes her points. ...

I asked Rice, who is single, if she dates.

The one thing I don't do is talk about my personal life, but let me tell you this: I'm not a workaholic; I have friends, she says. I do other things besides work, and I wish I had time to do more other things.

In fact, Rice has a weakness for football players. ...

A Spiritual Side

Rice is a spiritual person. She told me she prays as many as 10 times a day. ...

Sometimes I pray to myself and sometimes, when I'm alone, I pray out loud. ...

A Russian speaker, Rice occasionally reads a Russian language newspaper. ...

With her friend Mary Kate Bush, a former alternate executive director of the International Monetary Fund, Rice attends the symphony or the opera at the Kennedy Center.

We love to shop, said Bush, who serves on the boards of corporations and mutual funds. We play tennis together. Every now and then we get to go to a movie. We watch TV -- sports in particular -- and spend relaxing, quiet evenings. We make dinner or order in and veg out.

Her bestest work pal Phil Zelikow resigned today! How well she keeps up appearances when we know she must be crying on the inside.

Poor, brave, clever, sad, fabulous, ruthless... she's like Brenda Starr and Lois Lane wrapped into one, except she's real!

The face of exhaustion -- and it's only Indonesia? It's taking every muscle in her brow to keep those sad little eyes open.

Has the Condi-brow been botoxed? Or just the fat from small, helpless creatures injected between the lines as an elixir of love?

I am looking for a psychic who does 'brow readings' instead of 'palm readings'. We might crack all the secret Bush codes if I succeed. Send donations and I'll split 'em with Princess Sparkle Pony.

No, silly, google "Mary K. Bush", not "Mary Kate Bush". All sorts of stuff comes up. Her CV is a clone of Condi's. Lives in DC. IMF power person. Spends "quiet evenings" with Condi.


This stuff doesn't come out by accident, silly Democrat. This came out on purpose. The Administration wants you to know about Mary K. Bush.

Have you noticed that Mr. Cheney's been a little quiet lately?
