It was kind of a busy day for Condi, but kind of a boring one, so this is kind of a routine Condi status report. She got photographed a lot! Everybody near her got photographed a lot! I'm happy that the above includes sprightly, mischievous (I like to think) Javier Solana, always a sparkley note of fun in any photo-op. I love him. Don't you just want to pick him up and put him in your pocket? No?
Anyway, what it really comes down to is this:

Even if it's bad for business, I've got to admit that Condi's looking good! I pronounce her hairdo and the outermost layers of her facial apparatus to be fully recovered!

See? It's like last week's series of cosmetic disasters never happened.
Or... is it the Magical GOPtronic Condibot deployed while the less-convincing biological version is undergoing extensive repairs?
Well, obvs, only her hairdresser knows for sure.
Oh, oh, oh! And something about Condi and a company called Blackwater? What is that? My middle name is Douglas, and that means black water! Maybe we're related?
