Wheee! OK, actually, no, Condi 'n' George weren't really sneaking off into the bushes for a little nookie time, honest! Ew! They were on their way to Mount Vernon to listen to Krazy Kozy talk, you know, their new French best friend! It's great that Kozy loves America 'n' stuff. Maybe he should think about loving the people in his own country? Neat!
At George Washington's estate, obviously chosen for the heaping plateful of delicious ironies George Bush's presence calls to mind, Dr. Diplomat got in some cuddle time with her overseas counterpart. So sweet:

She's had an exceptionally huggy time lately! I'm all for the cuddles. But speaking of cuddley, can we get back to Kozy? Kozy said something really, really funny about Condi, but I don't think he meant it as a joke. He was, all, like, "I think it's great America makes all these wetbacks secretary of state," and gave examples of recent immigrants and first genners like Colin Powell, Madeleine Albright and... um... Condi! I bet Condi's American parents and the ghosts of her grandparents and slave great-grandparents thought this was hysterically funny! Maybe I just don't get French humor?
But you know that party last night where Kozy slobbered all over Laura? I was a little disappointed that Condi wasn't in sight. But she was there! And it just took a little longer for the pictures to show up. And, natch, she was a dream divine:

She's like a gorgeous cranberry in a sea of penguins. Fantastic belt/clutch coordination! A good time was had by all!
