I don't really have much to say about this one, but doesn't everybody look happy? Granted, it's got to be loads more fun to be under Condi than George.

EDIT: Also, OMG, do you realize just how close we were this morning to Condi becoming vice president? Damn Cheney's lucky stars!

That's actually an air high-five. Nobody in the Bush administration is allowed to touch a "colored" person, even Condi.

Barbara's rules.

Awww, you can't see the face of Lord Voldemort on the back of Negroponte's head.

I wish the press photogs would stop cooperating with the order to never photograph Negroponte from behind.

I am simply spending time in the theatre of my mind savoring the words and accompanying thoughts for "it's got to be loads more fun to be under Condi than George."

That, pardon the pun, is an understatement!!

I'm just a big meanie, but I can never look at a still picture of GWB, or a few seconds of video for that matter, without thinking "What a fracking idiot!"

Well, that is true no more! He looks suave and debonair in this picture! I can even hear him making some clever bon mot to Mish Moneypenny in a passable Sean Connery impression.

AP photog Charles Dharapak is a freaking genius! GWB looks like not an idiot! First time in over six years!

But then there's that spot over his left eyebrow. He should get that looked at.
