Yay! A shopping excursion! I'm glad Condi decided to drop that trip to dowdy ol' Africa in favor of the Middle East, because the malls are totally a lot better there. And, naturally, she had to get her holiday instructions from one of her primary masters before going. No, not George (although I'm sure he had some tips 'n' tricks), but Jordan's adorable bear-king!
Which reminds me: I wonder how many oil company boards Condi will grace after the Bush Administration finally goes away?
