Shadow Diplomacy

(AP Photo/Michael Sohn)



Condi's photo-optacular trip continues! There are tons of photos, as always, but not very many interesting or funny ones.

So how about a puzzle? Can you tell without cheating who Dr. Ferragamo's pal is in the above picture? Hint: it's not John Bolten.

UPDATE: You all are good! It is, indeed, Angela Merkel, unloved by Jacques Chirac, but adored by George Bush. Condi... talked with a bunch of people in Germany today, I guess. That's what she does! Praise her!

Is that the silhouette of Angela Merkel's helmet-head?

Very good! Did you cheat?

To me it looks like that German lady to whom Bush tried to give a neck massage.

I beg to differ!
I must clarify and quantify the record, please modify the comments to correct; For The Childeren! we must allow all to know that the meeting photographed above is from the secret confrence between Dr. Rice and Dr. Zaius! Ah, now all our diplomacy is making sense to you! The apes have already taken over, in this timeline!

It's actually Angela's lack of a neck that gives her away. She appears to still be in cringe mode thinking about the Chimperor.

I confess, though, that I was going to guess that British chick that Chirac won't kiss. I think the giant tit in the background put in me in mind of St Paul's.

Dreux, you have a point. I was channel surfing Monday and noticed that the History Channel was showing Planet of the Apes. I thought there must have been a message there somewhere.

I'm trying to hear what she says, but I can't stop staring at her big teeth.

Wait... did somebody else already bring that up?

Matty, it does look a bit like a pic of Mr. Ed in a Darth Vader helmet.

It's clearly Angela Merkel!

She looks good in silohuette.

I pity the fool that can't see that the shadow is none other than the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, who, coincidentally, is NOT the Godfather of Anna Nicole's love child.

I love how Condi's WASPy pearls just stand right out like she's in a DeBeers commercial.

I was sure it was Linda T, master HR henchwoman for the Department. But I guess henchpeople don't usually make photo-ops, especially arty ones ...
