Proof that Condi is both adventurous and spontaneous, not to mention popular. Also -- Instead of matching white armchairs, we got matching white... oh, lots of things.

Vroom vroom- golf cart take me away!

sfmike said...

I'm so glad you're not still in the blackest pits of despair, Princess. I was starting to get worried.

When are we going to get the Tiger/Condi photoshoot, by the way? You know it's just got to happen.

Matty Boy said...

I'm having an "It's Pat!" moment with the other person in white with the blue shirt in the top picture. Male? Female? Special friend? Lowly intern?

Please, Princess, do what is necessary to patch things up with your possible inside source. The Pony Pal Nation must know this, else we explode!

Also, I join sfmike in thanks that you are back with us. Another favorite blogger is on a two week break an dI am at my wit's end.

FranIAm said...

Amen to all that- PSP is back and with a vengence.

I have no fear that all good intrigue will play out as needed and our special sparkley princess will end up with a great scoop.

PSP, please tell: Will the Department send EVERYONE to Iraq, or will they split assignments between passport production and Iraq?

Dear Princess – joining in the chorus of pals so glad to see you back and out of the valley of despair. Despite the costume attempt, Condi will never be the good humor woman.

Yay! You're back! And it likes like Condi is having so much fun. I like when Condi is having fun! In the top picture, her hair looks like she is casual and that it might actually move in the wind. But then she rides in the golf cart and it doesn't move! Amazing!

Dreux said...

I heard that even when the princess is at the wrong place, it becomes the right place just by benifit of her being there, ergo, your state department insider is the one whom was off the mark! Better luck to him/her next time!

Matty, I believe that "Pat" might be more comfortable at an LPGA event. Notice the collar: it buttons from the girl side, right over left.

It's a Condilicious summer moment!

Matty Boy said...

Yes, pc, I was going to make an LPGA joke in my original post, but I wanted to leave that available for others. Nice pick-up.

Good eyes on the buttons! I was transfixed by the might-be bosom and could-be earrings juxtaposed with the strong neckline and jaw and completely androgynous haircut. He or she is also a little taller than Condi, who is not a tiny person.

Do you that before the lights go out, Condi shyly asks, "Is it okay if I call you... Ursula?"

FranIAm said...

You all are much more sharp than I on this one... However, closer inspection of said Pat person tells me that she has a vaguely Tzipi-with-short-haircut feel to her.

That's all I'm sayin'.

Half the world starves and this idiot-woman, all dressed in white and calling herself a "Doctor" (thank God she is not operating on any of us) rides in a golf cart -- at our taxpayers' expense.

Cry, the beloved country.

If you squint, the golf dyke looks a little like Mary Cheney. Well, same archtype, at least.
Great haircut. Tres Flowbee. And the pearl earrings make her look totally Girl...unfortunately the blazer and shirt cancel them out.

karrenzipdrive said...

Has anyone here wondered how much Condi's golf photo op is costing the taxpayers?
Hint: anyone not in golf attire is getting paid.

Ensign Steve said...

But the guys in green don't get paid all that much.

The two ranks I see are Staff Seargent and First Seargent. E6 gets about $130 a day, E7 gets about $150, standard active duty rate, according to Mr. Google.

HRH King Friday XIII said...

I wonder if the soliders with missing legs got to ride on one of those carts or if condi made them walk.

Lulu Maude said...

Was she there to kiss the trophy? Or to make a ceremonial putt on behalf of the administration?

Such a busy schedule.

pissed off patricia said...

I see she has taken Gore's advice and is going green now in her little electric golf cart. It may put a bit of a crimp in over seas travel.

History as an Alibi

"On Friday, Condi Rice played hooky and spent the afternoon at the Tiger Woods golf tournament at Congressional Country Club in suburban Maryland.

She had lunch at the clubhouse with Tiger, who had dedicated the contest to American servicemen. She followed Phil Mickelson and Brad Faxon for a bit, after having them over to the White House on the Fourth to watch the fireworks. She gave interviews about her newfound affection for golf, laughing about her errant drives and “wicked hook.”

Like W. going out boating and fishing in Kennebunkport as Britain and its new prime minister, Gordon Brown, reeled from terrorist attacks, Condi acted as if she didn’t have a care in the world. And why on earth should she? ...

Someone might tell Condi — who said in one of her golf interviews that her zest for sports is so all-encompassing that “I love anything with a score at the end” — that she’d better get to work or America’s score in Iraq will be zero."
