Condi Overwhelmed by Complexity of Middle Eastern Hats, Other Ceremonial Head Coverings


In this photo made available by the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, right, sits with Jerusalem religious leaders at the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem, Monday Oct. 15, 2007. The time has come for establishing a Palestinian state and it is in the interest of the U.S. to do so, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Monday in one of her most forceful statements yet on the issue.

I've got to hand it to Condi, OK? Because that just doesn't look like a very fun, chatty kind of crowd. In a perfect world, our Princess Diplomat would arrive at this dreary little confab sporting the tallest, glitteriest, most fabulous creation EVER on the top of her fairy tale noggin. Because she is like something out of a fairy tale, once you stop and think about it!

Also, see if you can spot the ghost of Arafat smiling down on Condi:

Where the hell are they having that meeting? At the Medieval Times conference center?

Please, Princess -- continue to be a force for good taste in the world: stage an intervention with Dr. Ferragamo and TAKE AWAY that big icky pearl necklace.

I think Condi looks completely at home in that freaky environment. All she lacks is a tiara festooned with American flags.

Sparkle Pony, I was having a bad day and you made me laugh out loud.

Thank you.

You know there are actually two in Jerusalem... One in the Jewish western part of the city and one in the more Arab East Jerusalem.

I wonder which one Condi picked!
