Sparkle Pony Press Conference Tips 'n' Tricks

Condi, Condi, Condi. This awkward press conference would have been a lot more comfortable and you would have communicated your master's message way better if you had stood behind the not-at-all gratuitous row of flags.

UPDATE: Think Progress has Condi on TV, and this time she's got a superfantastic new word way better than surge (which is kinda wearing thin): augmentation. Neato, Condi!

I think it would have been better if she had just wrapped herself inside one.

But I guess that would be seen as too obvious by the non-Fox News Channel press.

It looks as if even the flags are looking downward...

I thought the full metaphor required a bloody flag. Too unhygienic, perhaps?

Condi talks with the hands. Is her invisible friend augmented?

Heh, heh. She said "augmentation". We all know what that word usually follows.

“Putting 22,000 new troops, more troops in, is not an escalation?”
“I would call it, senator, an augmentation,”

This is, to be crude, "Viagra-speak".

It is not making anything larger (escalation) in Iraq, but merely raising the troops ability to maintain their presence in the 'body' of Iraq, thus they will be able to achieve their goal, rather than floundering about on dirty sheets whimpering about the lost manhood of America.

Or whatever. Boggles my teeny-tiny brain. Condi's brow might be as furrowed as a Kansas corn field, but she's still talking manure with an ax handle sticking out of her ass.

I'm over-metaphored. I'd best go sit in the corner and play with rats for a bit.

Isn't augmentation for breasts?

Oohh... I see.
