It's true! You might indeed think that "America's top diplomat" has her hands full these days... but you'd be wrong! And that's why she has all that time to hang around with Cal Ripken and other important ambassadors of American neatoness.
Pony Pal™ Blue Gal has just breathlessly informed me that Condi has been deemed the most eligible bachelorette in Washington by Forbes. Clearly this is an error; how, exactly, are they defining eligible? I think this is just another one of those clerical errors, as when she was recently, hilariously, named the most influential person in the District. LOL! As if!
Anything else funny about the article? We're also tied for 20th place as drinkiest city... with San Francisco? I'm sorry, but DC is way, way drunker. I think the most humorous thing about the piece, though, is that we're rated #6 best city for singles overall, perhaps due to our 33% unmarried statistic. Um... hello? Forbes? PSSST! We're all hairdressers! Or otherwise unmarriable! Also, apparently, we're the fifth best city for young professionals, which means that all those dirt-poor staffers on The Hill who are in their 20s but still have to have roommates are luckier than they knew!
And, finally, Forbes lists DC's population as 3,208,937 which is, of course, only about, oh, 2,600,000 more than actually live here.
But anyway... we're number six! Hooray!
