Ursula really is the Anti-Condi, getting stuff done and making things happen. She's like an action figure to Condi's rag doll. OK, I have to be honest, but I totally don't get what they're talking about in the caption, and I have no idea if the side Ursula was on was the good side or the bad side or if there even were good or bad sides. But I'll say that it had such a pretty stage! I think it's like a video backdrop or something, because when they're signing the thing, it all magically changes to a wonderful, totally gorgeous PINK:

Here's a nice shot from a press conference the affable giantess had yesterday. I think some of the more Ursulacentric Pony Pals will find much to admire in this worshipful shot:

And, finally, those Ursula fans who take special delight in her majestic scale will instantly recognize this pose, in which the powerful yet considerate Amazon bends gracefully down to confer with one of her seemingly puny --but actually normally-sized-- colleagues:
Austrian Foreign Minister Ursula Plassnik (L) talks with her Portuguese counterpart Luis Amado (R) at the start of a Europoean Union foreign ministers meeting in Brussels December 10, 2007. The EU is close to full unity in support for Kosovo's drive for independence, with only Cyprus insisting that sovereignty for the Serbian province must be backed by a U.N. resolution, ministers said on Monday.

And what else has our favorite European Diplomatic Superbabe been up to? Banning cluster bombs, for one (be sure to read her powerful statements here). From the article, LOL:
Human rights activist and former wife of the Rolling Stones' lead singer Bianca Jagger praised Austria's move and said she hoped "that other countries will follow this example."
OMG, Bianca Jagger! LOVE HER.
What madcap escapades will Ursula get up to next?
