Kosovo Thanks Condi for All the Help

Kosovo Serbs set fire to a poster showing Serbia's President Boris Tadic wearing a traditional Albanian cap and shaking hands with U.S Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and also an EU flag, during a protest against independence of Kosovo, Monday, Feb. 25, 2008, near the key bridge between two parts of ethnically divided town of Kosovska Mitrovica. Kosovo Serb protesters rallied against Kosovo's independence in the new nation's tense north, in what has become a daily challenge of the country's secession from Serbia. (AP Photo/Srdjan Ilic)

Neat! A tad ungrateful, though, because Condi did, after all, recognize Kosovo instantly as a shiny, brand new country (but only after dodging questions about it for years).

Meanwhile, what the heck was Condi wearing this evening when she greeted the President of South Korea? I'm not sure:


At first I was worried because I thought somebody had smeared dung all over a perfectly good satin jacket, but upon closer inspection I was startled to realize that the design was intentional. What'll they think of next?

Egads. I hate to admit it, but that jacket in the bottom photo looks like something from Coldwater Creek, where I used to shop for my pretending-to-be-a-femme careerwear.

oooh, dang! (dung!)

PSP keeps it real. Fabulous, but real.

That was my exact thought when I saw this photo earlier during the day on Yahoo! Maybe, it her choosing that outfit has something to do with the made-up name (like Condi's real made-up Italian African-American ethnic name) that the South Koreans gave Condi during her visit.

In Korean culture, the tortoise is a symbol of good luck and protection from evil. Condi's tortoiseshell jacket might well be a reference to this.

is Condi sporting a matching DUng purse?

There appears to be a little bit of confusion up the way, there... Kosovar Serbs want to stay part of Serbia. It's the Albanian majority that wants to secede.

Just sayin'.

And who am I to correct anyone?
