Condi's Back to Basics, Plus Bonus False Hairdo Alert!

OK, so this is kind of a catch-up, but that's the Good Doctor Ferragamo yesterday performing a dueling podiums photo-op with Tzipi at the State Department. So nothing special, right? And today, predictably, was matching armchairs day, but say hello to a subtly yet noticeably altered hairdo:

I'm hesitant to call this a "new" coiffure, but there's just enough intrigue here to raise the Condoleezza Hairdo Alert System™ to the "elevated" level. You know, just to be safe. Please adjust your plans for Friday accordingly.

Oh, and I'm sure she talked about tons of boring stuff with the Vietnam guy.

UPDATE! Sorry, false alarm. This was just posted minutes ago:

Now, Precious Pony, you must remember the difference between New Hairdo and simply Not Shampooed. Clearly, Dr. F is sporting the latter grease-flattened coif.

It makes me think of an old stand-by when I was in the 5th grade(circa 1967) "Mini-Poo". It was basically powder and a special comb and it would soak up any excess oil. Condi-poo... a product name worth inventing a product for!!

Tzipi has that "oy vey is mir" look about her, what's up or should I just say, "nu"?

Yeah, we ladies know the hairdo is just greasy, that's all.
She needs to ease off on the Dixie Peach pomade and wash that mess.

So what's wrong with the "you stand in front of your flag and I'll stand in front of mine" motif? Is Tzipi so insecure she needs two Israeli flags to only one American. Clearly a serious problem with symmetry. Maybe that's why Condi looks so sad in that picture.

And the 'bilateral' argreement with Malta... yeah, right. "Okay, Frendo, here's the deal; we can board your ships whenever we want and you can board our ships when hell freezes over. Got it?"

Tzipi's clearly plotzing.

The Condi-poo look reminds me a bit of that 1940s/WWII era style women sported. I'm guessing she's rationing.

Uh-oh. The terrorists have won if I can't get my deep-cleaning shampoo.

It looks the Tzipster's imitating Bobby from 'King of the Hill':

"Vhat are you talkingk aboutt!?!?"

I note, in all my innocence, striking physical similarities between Tom Jeff and Condi. Both have wonderful cheekbones.

Just as she is proud of him, so he, in his grave, must be proud of her.

They are both part of a great American tradition -- an interest in foreign affairs.
