So anyway, back to Condi! After their triumphant press conference on the surface of the Moon, Dr. Ferragamo and Howdy Doody hotfooted it to what was pretty much a vacation fake meeting in the warm embrace of the only foreign national government that likes us... and speaks English, so George can have a good time, too. Yay for boat rides! Yay for friends!
Then Condi got to eat some delicious food amongst some no-doubt totally casually chosen and not-at-all carefully screened or rehearsed cadre of Australian soldiers (um... not shown):

Mmmmmm! What is that scrumptious creation in yonder chafing dish? It looks positively divine!
So it was a totally good meeting, and George 'n' Condi got, oh, just scads of things 'n' stuff done, OK?
Oh, and no Laura! Yay!
