New Photos Cast Doubt on "Newness" of Condi's New Hairdo

OK, now I'm kinda confused. I was all excited on Friday because Condi's coiffure seemed to have undergone substantial alterations. Today, though, it kinda looks the same as it has for months. What gives? Well, obviously it was at least trimmed on Thursday, because it is shorter. I believe that on Friday, however, the 'do was still in that euphoric post-treatment phase where everything has a lot more volume, so that made Condi's hair delightfully spherical and puffy. It looks like the party's over today, though.

I'll keep the Condoleezza Rice Hairdo Alert System at "Elevated" for the next few days, as the post-wash'n'set period is still a treacherous time, but I'm afraid a rise in the threat level to "High" is unlikely (she would basically have to put a traffic cone on her head) and, alas, "Severe" is still something we can only fantasize about.

UPDATE: I forgot to mention another possibility, that this is the Animagic, Disneytronic Condibot, and it's hair hasn't been modified yet. See? This is why we can't be too hasty or too eager to fool around with the Condoleezza Hairdo Alert System.

what will you do if she shaves her head...

The Condoleezza Hairdo Alert System specifically lists baldness in the "Severe" category! Please consult your CHAS, which should be posted in eyesight range, and memorize it! Tsk!

she IS deflated --- no little squishy huggy surprise birthday party this year...all alone in her condo slowly sipping that one glass of chardonnay - on the rocks - and not even a little kiss kiss from her husband/I mean georgie porgie

Female collaborators had their head shaven in Europe during WWII, if my memory serves me right. That kind of minimalist hairdo would thus be most appropriate for the good doctor, given how she has played, so enthusiastically and for so long, footsies with the Caligula in the White House (and with her Ferragamo high-heels on).

Sigh. Nothing lasts.

Condi's new hairdo is of major symbolic significance...

Condibot!

THAT is a very good guess, Friday. I meant to include that as a possibility.

Heyyy, I told you that new 'do would be impossible to maintain.
We all look fabulous on the way out of the salon- then a little humidity and a dot of the wrong product and >poof< all the magic is gone.
Clearly, Lecondel was too haughty to pay attention during that critical blow and brush phase, so's she's back where she started from.

P.S.
I checked and the humidity level in D.C. is at 82%.
A sistah don't stand a chance up in there hair-do wise, unless she moves her hairdresser in with her.

Besides the hairdo disappointment, Condi (or the Condi-bot, always a possibility) looks all fisty and tense. That happy picture when her mouth and eyes were smiling at the same time seems like the distant past now, only a weekend old.

Will she ever find happiness? Or has she replaced Susan Lucci as the Queen of Heartbreak?

Stay tuned, gentle readers.

It is telling that our administration has become so accustomed to the lack of viewership leCondel garners these days that they would fail to update the Condibot v. 1.2 *yawn*

Note that the Condibot seems to tower over Mr. Leaving-right-now; she's even bowing a bit to get into frame. Perhaps this is a newer, taller version of the 'Bot, which might gain her some ground against Ursula.

NOT!
