Is the Whole World Holding Its Breath for the Next Two Years, or What?

OK, you know that it's really, really bad for GW when even Condi is scowling at the back of his head, right? It's almost like she's saying, "OMG, I could get something done if you weren't here." And I'd agree if I thought that she was capable of getting anything done anywhere, anytime. But, like, everywhere they go on this trip, people are totally all "Um, we're going to nod in your general direction, but we're, like, totally biding our time until you're out of office." And I think George really has that figured out now. Better late than never!

But can we get back to the really important stuff, Condi's wardrobe? Yay! Well, I have a special treat for John at By the Bayou, because he was totally just asking me about a certain outfit of hers just days ago, and OMG, she's wearing it right now! It's a kinda track-suit-couture kinda thing, and John, here's the total overall view you wanted:

I'm dubbing the color "Marshmellow Poo". I'm so glad we have this opportunity to understand Condi's outfits together.

To finish that outfit off, she needs a brown Zune. Like her, it's chocolately-brown with a rubberized, scratch-resistant surface, and seems really cool if you haven't seen anything else.

We don't want scowling Condi! We don't want constipated Laura! Princess, show your audience some respect and give us what we want!

Fashion and smiles! Even bad fashion and fake smiles! (Actually, especially bad fashion and fake smiles.)

Well, Matty, like I said, you know it's really bad when both Condi 'n' Laura are grimacing at W.

Also, I love the idea of a brown Zune for Condi. Everybody should keep their eyes open for that brown/green combo, because it'll be popping up everywhere. Brown and green is totally the new brown and orange, and I, for one, am thrilled because I just scored some incredible lime green suede Hush Puppies on eBay.

I hadn't noticed until now that Condi's left hand is balled up in a fist in the second picture. She's almost like a Jack Kirby superheroine (Big Barda maybe?) getting ready to leap into battle!

(Making a Jack Kirby reference shows that my nickname Matty Boy refers correctly to my gender, but may be misleading about my age.)

Condi vs. Ursula! What a donnybrook that would be! Oh, the super-humanity!

"but we're, like, totally biding our time until you're out of office" pretty much sums up the the attitude of the world all right. Let's pray we [the world] manage to survive those two years.

And thank you for getting back to the really important stuff like Condi's "marshmallow poo" ensembles. I've been laughing all morning at this.

"Marshmallow poo".

I'm struck dumb with delight.


Did you notice how Condi's neck-breaking thigh is outlined by this suit? In a bionic way, it's sorta titillating....for those who are so inclined of course.

Oh where do I begin in this particular garden of earthly delights?

Scowls, zunes, clenched fists, track suit couture... I am awash in joy from this post.

So all I will say, is wow, love the name of the photo for the track-suit shot. Brings to mind Mark Foley-ian activities.

I am a naughty girl, aren't I? Tee hee.

As ever, Franonymous

It's very Courreges circa 1965. I love that she's wearing her skirt above the knee. She looks like she could squish those men between her thighs.

I think I know this dress. It's like a mood ring. When Condi's in a good mood it's blue. When she's happy with George is glows pink like a blushing bride.

When she's being a shit it turns the colour of, well, marshmelllow poo.

When a fashion icon speaks, I listen. I'm rushing out to buy stock in Adidas right now. Their line of business suits are obviously the next hot thing!

Karen Zipdrive said...

Pony, darling, your captioning is always spot on, but not this time. Condi is glaring at Bush because she's sick of him farting, then leaving her in a cloud of stench again. That gets old.

This suit must have been a Christmas gift from W: did he give the same one to his daughter? Spotted at Wonkette this week:
