Condi's "O" Face

A woman holds a poster during a protest against the visit of U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in central Madrid, June 1, 2007. Rice reproached Spain in a visit on Friday for engaging Cuba, and said it needed to do more in Afghanistan. REUTERS/Andrea Comas (SPAIN)

Nice of a Spanish protester to have a sign in English, though the sentence construction has a certain Iberian ring to it. Of course OIL WAR is much more concise than GUERRA DE PETROLEO, one of the advantages of our flexible if not very sexy language.

Thanks for letting the world know she actually has an O face.

Condi looks so very sad to have been given a Lisa Simpson hairdo.

I doubt that a Spaniards cut n' paste rises to the level of a hairdo alert, but if it could, I'd say elevated.

I like the look... Condi in a finger wave.

"Rice reproached Spain in a visit on Friday for engaging Cuba, and said it needed to do more in Afghanistan."

Run this through my Heather-a-tron 2000:

"What's your damage, Spain? You totally hung out with Fidel 'Martha Dumptruck' Castro when you should have been here with me at my party. I don't know if I can be seen with anyone who doesn't get how totally uncool that is. Whatever."

Take the Pledge

All Presidential Candidates should make pledges like those below. If they refuse, then you should refuse to vote for them.

1. No More Oil Wars.

2. Work for independence from foreign oil on day one.

3. No more wars for corporate profit.

4. No more secret deals for $4 per gallon gas.

5. No more Chicken Hawks promoting wars of choice when they themselves avoided combat.

6. Make government green--if you can't make what you have the most control over green, I don't care about your plans to make the country green.

7. No more torture.

8. No more lying about torture.

9. No more re-defining torture.

10. No more drunken hunting.

11. No more secret deals with big corporations to divide up the spoils before the war even starts.

OMG! You of course heard about Condi's tantrum in front of all other sec's of state at the OAS general assembly...SHE ALMOST SCREAMED AND THEN, BRISKLY STOOD UP AND LEFT!

Please let us give you the links:

At the end of the list, see the one that says 'Remarks by Condoleezza Rice and Nicolas Maduro, Foreign Ministers of USA and Venezuela, respectively.'

5 minutes of pure bliss...

I think the original photo before it was Simpsonized was way too flattering. Without those famous picket fence teeth showing, Condi looks way too composed.
