Faced with Tough Foreign Policy Questions, Condi Says OMG, Look! Here's Cal Ripken!

Oh, she's got a million tricks up her chic sleeves (and possibly a box of adorable puppies hidden behind her back just in case this photo-op doesn't pan out)! What's all this about major setbacks in Afghanistan? Allow me to present Michelle Kwan! And now it's Cal Ripken, Jr.'s turn to play merkin to the Bush Administration's naughty bits. I bet if there's "another 911," Condi will pull an entire soccer team out of her ass.

Also, um... isn't this supposed to be public diplomacy guru Karen Hughes' job? Where's Karen been, anyway? She seems to be performing her duty by hiding in a cave, which, if you think about it, is probably more effective than her previous efforts.

All I can see is that Cal is covering his precious man-parts and wisely so when Condi is nearby. He does not want to be next on the emasculation list!

As for Karen "Kick-Ass" Hughes, she is probably making arrangements for Karl to finally "meet" his family now that he is about to spend some time with them. It is an area she knows well.

Poor Cal. His sense of duty is so strong...all those consecutive games, and now this.

You ask 'm real nice, and he just has to show up.

Well, it has all but been confirmed that Bu$hco will pull another 9/11 sometime next year close to the elections. Former senator and current butt kisser Rick Snatorum told a group of people that he is "certain that the country will be attacked again sometime next year" and being that he is an insider, he should know.

Princess darling,

This whole baseball/ice skating masquerade is simply appalling. As Dubya & Kondi bomb/kill people the world over (Iraq, Afghanistan, you name it), the Busheviks exploit athletes to make it (the regime propagandized by Hughes) look good ... where's my barf bag... and as if the outside world didn't realize what the regime's hypocrisy ... furreners ain't that stupid, even in Canada :) ...

The graininess of this picture and the position of Cal on a relatively unbusy background gives this the look of a weak photoshop collage or one of those backgrounds where you can have your picture taken with a celebrity.

Of course, we don't need the "unbelievably not photoshopped" tag on this, because it is far below the Princess' high standards.

matty, those were my thoughts exactly.

But then we know how badly this administration does Photoshop

Looks like a cardboard cutout of Cal. Come to think of it, when I see pictures of george and laura, the laura character always looks like a cardboard cutout as well. Hey, what's going on?

Karen Hughes is an even bigger waste than condi, if that's possible. I think Karen's present assignment is to teach Iraqi ladies how to cook pizzas or fried chicken or something. Cooking can be tricky business when bombs are going off all over the damned neighborhood and soldiers are knocking down your doors.

Jess,

Did you check out how that spoilt preppie (who has never worked a day in his life) says "rather" ("raaather") in "Whatever it takes"? What happened to his faux Texas accent?

The thought of Condi pulling anything out of her ass makes me shudder.

Heh, I'm still on the concept of Cal Ripkin girding his loins against the icy cold, predatory stare of Condi Voldemort.
Poor Cal, he looks like he's being forced to be there- like the IRS was the agency that invited him.
