Wire Photographers Lose Interest at CondiEarthFest '07 with Humorous Results

Condi had her kinda sham environmental thingee today, and she gave a really boring speech, one so utterly devoid of content that light itself could not penetrate it. The event, to put it mildly, was a flop. But the good news is: it was meant to be! Oh, it started out typically enough:

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice makes opening remarks at the Major Economies Meeting on Energy Security and Climate Change at the State Department in Washington September 27, 2007. The world's biggest greenhouse gas polluters -- including the United States and China -- sent envoys to the U.S. State Department on Thursday for discussions on climate change and what to do about it. (Kevin Lamarque/Reuters)

After rambling on and on for a while... well, the Condirazzi know a dud when they see one, right? They know this gig is going nowhere fast, and their interests begin to wander. They get sloppy. Is the schlubby videographer in the shot? Heck, it can only improve it:


Eventually, both Reuters' Lamarque (below, top), who has shot Dr. Ferragamo many times, and AP's Gerald Herbert (bottom) got so disinterested in Condi that they independently found the backs of people's heads to be more compelling:

She's the hostess with the leastest! Yay for Condi! She's #1!

Dear Princess,

Will happen to your genius blog when Condi vanishes completely? We can live without Condi, but how is life possible with Princess Pony?

Condi's #1?
I think she's more of a #2.
A huge #2.

One of the genius things about portable chairs is that you can line them up so the audience is FACING THE SPEAKER! What's with this turning sideways crapola? It's not like they are a crummy banquet eating rubber chicken. Who's in charge here?

Oh, I forgot. Condi!!!!

Wow, your photographic analysis skills are #1, Princess. Condi is, as Zip said, more like #2. Though at least she seems to have gotten her hair in order.

This must've been a total snooze-fest. In that one photo with the schlubby videographer, even SHE looks bored with her speech.

Well she did say that we need to fight global warming like we fight terrorism in otherwords not doing a damn thing but just repeating the words over and over again. Who said talk is cheap? It gets votes, yes?
