Off Into the Bushes!

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!

Hairdo alert: it's back of her ears!!

Please register in the system. It's probably as much as we'll get before 1.20.09.

Sorry, but it's the occasional variations like this that keep the level from dropping to the lowest level (no variations at all), rather than raising it. I know, it's frustrating.

Maybe you should start a new category: ill fitting couture alert.
Poor Condi- her designers can't quite get the darts anywhere near the nipple zone.
And all these off-shades of red! Not her color.

Condi without pearls. It's just wrong, that's all.

And Kouchner! YIKES! It's bad enough to get second place in a Don Imus lookalike contest, but then you add in being French! Sacre bleu! Or in his case, Sacre blanc! Super pasty blanc at that.

I said it about the Red Dress last time, I said it about Crazy Eyes' schoolmarm-chic schmatta at this party, and now further evidence: these women must be sewing their own. There's just no other excuse for that kind of fit. Karenzipdrive, as usual, has nailed it: those seams make no sense.

Bunching, sagging, riding up - our Lady Leaders are a Sad Fashion Disaster.

Uh, why are we we supposed to love Sar-Cozy? 'Cause he's Jewish, which somehow makes him more "America-loving"? I don't quite get this line of reasoning, nor do I want to even think about it.

And as far as Sar-Cozy's unwitting historical racism about Condi being a Fresh Off The Boater, well, Le Confusion just mounts! I am having une crise existentiale!

Please don't wear red tonight, cuzz red is the color that my baby wore, and what's more ... tra la la the Beatles if anyone remembers that song...

Heh that Naval Officer guy was totally checking her out.

Sharku is not Jewish. He's the son of a Hungarian refugee and Roman Catholic, in spite of all the divorcing and separations. I think we are supposed to love him because he started a kinky orgy at Mt Vernon. Look at the way everyone is grinning. And during that speech, George demanded that Musharrif disrobe.

Zipdrive--right on as usual--look at the uni-boob. WTF?

And we're seeing WAY too much forehead in this shot, and that's not a good thing.

Do you know, I didn't hate it as much as her other red-sausage-tube gowns. The last one was truly atrocious. As flattering as wearing glistening raw ground chuck.

This one is more like "steak tartare." It even has a belt!

Dave, I think he's searching his pockets for a quarter....
