Wasp Queen

Look! Condi got married today! To a classy lady! By... um... a cute Jewish gay priest!



Ha, ha! Just kidding! Here's the totally real caption:

Ambassador Nancy Goodman Brinker, left, is sworn in as the new Chief of Protocol of the U.S. by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, right, during a ceremony at the State Department in Washington, Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2007. At center by her son Eric Brinker. The chief of protocol assists the president and the secretary of state on official diplomatic procedure and is responsible for activities including the planning, hosting and officiating of ceremonial events for visiting chiefs of state and heads of government. Ambassador Brinker is the founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, an organization to help victims of breast cancer. It is named after Ambassador Brinker's sister Susan who died from breast cancer in 1980 at age 36. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)


OK, so here she is, the new politeness lady, the one who showed Condi how to be a little more open about her vulva:



... and I want to say a few words about Ms. Brinker, I really do, but I just can't. She created the Komen thingy. So I'm just going to say two sparkley hooves up! Way up!

Here is the answer to the question almost no one asked...

What would Katherine Harris look like if she were sane?

txyankee said...

Will all White House folksies have to wear a pink ribbon next to their flag lapel pin now?

sfmike said...

What IS that lapel pin? Does it have the ribbons-of-many-colors so Every Cause is represented? How clever. She deserves to be Queen of Protocol.

And I thought I always hated cancer...

Toriko said...

Invoke images of Jackie O much Ms. Brinker?

ivan said...

It looks as if she's never take the hospital robe off she was wearing while visiting her sister Susan in the hospital, and decided to dress it up with some Bedazzler buttons and a brouch. Could it be more ill-fitting?

Muscato said...

I think it's ill-fitting because it's actually one of Judy Garland's old tour jackets from the circa 1960 fat period. Seriously, I thought she was the only woman in the world who every attempted that neckline (and it didn't even work on her).

And estimable philanthropista or no, that hair is just atrocious - simultaneously bouffie and scraggly in a way that is just a few days missed shampooings away from being amywinehousean.

dguzman said...

Like muscato, I'm overwhelmed by the helmet hair. And I also think (s)he's right about the Garland outfit--only I think it's being sported by a drag queen. Komen thingie or so, that is one mannish face.

dguzman said...

I meant Komen thingie or NO...
stoopid fingers.

Blue Gal said...

And once again Matty Boy makes me laugh harder than the actual post. You really oughtta ban him, Princess.

She was obviously chosen because her fashion sense makes Pickles look like Jackie O.

samael7 said...

Matty Boy! You totally beat me to the punch!

I was going to say, "She looks like a cross between Katherine Harris and Crazy Eyes, with a little Joan Rivers thrown in for "good" measure."

Lulu Maude said...

She just looks like a Republican.

Dubya should have chosen Judith Martin, although she looked sort of gray in her last photo-op.

FranIAm said...

Yes - Matty made the comment o' the day din't he?

Matty Boy said...

Thanks to all for the kind words. I had the advantage of the first round draft pick.

Blue Gal actually crossed the line to "too kind". There's no way on God's Green Earth I am funnier than PSP.

Crazy Eyes? Meet Sneaky Eyes.

Lulu, the Dewey Dame said...

How about bringing back the circle pin for that ensemble? A pill box hat, perhaps?

"I now pronounce you Secretary and Chief. You may High-Five the bride."

Um, FYI Brinker is Jewish so she can't be a WASP. She's actually the best thing to happen to the administration in a LONG time.

karenzipdrive said...

Brinker looks like the prototype for all middle aged women from Dallas.

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

I noticed she was Jewish! I kinda alluded to that in the first sentence.

But anyway, she may be Jewish, but her style is immaculately WASPy.

Maybe with the exception that she has actual done something for once. Of all the people in the Bush administration this is one of the "good gals." I heard her speak in a small setting a few months ago and she really is a leader and has impacted true change with breast cancer texas hair or not.

I'd love to see some of the posters post their pics! LOL! Now that would be a laugh.
