Pointless Condishot


U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (2nd R) speaks with guests at the White House Correspondents Association dinner in Washington April 21, 2007. Rice urged Iran to take part in a meeting on Iraq next month, telling the Financial Times it would be a 'missed opportunity' if Tehran failed to attend. (Yuri Gripas/Reuters)

I don't really have much of a reason to post the above other than getting some complaints about having a picture of Harriet Miers at the top of the blog all weekend. And, you know, that's a totally reasonable complaint. Sorry about that!

On the other hand, it's nice to see that Sparklefave Yuri Gripas got to cover the WHCA dinner, even if it was a total dud.

Did Condi just hit that woman on her right with a taser shot to the butt? How else does someone get that look on their face?

And the woman in blue in the left foreground. Is this the correspondents dinner or a PJ party at the Playboy Mansion?

Princess is correct to say the dinner was deadly. Wonkette has a link to the beginning of Rich Little's act, which I could also post here, but honestly, it's three and a half minutes of your life you will never get back.

However, I will link to the Blogger's Choice awards, where you can vote for Our Princess.

What is the one in the red dress on Condi's right waiting to swallow?

Ed said...

Pretty sure that's Larry King chatting up Condi, which would mean (A) one of those ladies is likely his young Mormon wife, and (B) watch out for a totally news-free interview of Condi on Larry King Live sometime soon.

Did they send Condibot to the dinner? Not a bad idea, knowing in advance how unfunny Little would be, all in attendance had to use their internal canned laughter algorithm.

Condibot didn't seem out of place at all.

Oh, Matty, I couldn't help myself. I went to Wonkette and watched.

elk, deer, moose. elk, deer, moose. No, it's a train. man. It's like watching your elderly uncle try to tell a joke to pass time at your Sunday visit to the home. Ouchie. Right when the clip ends Little says he's mailing 'Culture Warrior' to the NYT. Hilarity.

Pony people - pony up your votes at bloggerschoice.com. I hate to think that the only two votes were cast by my friend matty boy and me.

But right now it appears that we are it.

The woman in the red dress looks sort of like Cheri Oteri. I hope that she hasn't gone down the tubes since she ceased to be a Spartan cheerleader.

Emily said...

Can we talk about how unfortunate Condi's dress is? a winter color, high neck, long sleeves ... Come on Condi, you wear sexier things to work!

beezie said...

Actually, that crazy-eyed gal in the red looks like Denise Austin of exercise fame. She has that same "Laura Bush just been goosed" look in her videos. Maybe she and Condi are doing thigh crunches out of sight.

Only devotion to the princess would lead me to enroll in a potential spam-spewing blog site (*sigh*) - I voted

KarenZipdrive here-

Condi is clearly recycling her bridesmaid dress. That's the only possible excuse for it.

christine said...

And where is the jewelry? Without a good necklace she looks like she is in a school production of Romeo and Juliet. She needs some Ursula flair at the very least.

Muscato said...

The dress: she had to have made it herself. No other reason could possibly explain why a grown woman would wear that out of the house.

As for bijouterie, she has somehow managed to come up with a pair of dangling earbobs that don't so much dangle as cling desperately to the line of her jaw. Is she hiding scars or what?

At least she found a lipstick that appears to be an exact match.

gregg said...

It's not that the lipstick is an exact match. She used 47 tubes of it to color the dress. And everything below the waistline is just painted on.
