Sash Queens



Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (L) stands with US President George W. Bush (2ndL), First Lady Laura Bush (2ndR), and US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice after they were awarded Liberia's highest order of distinction during a ceremony at the Executive Mansion in Monrovia. Bush promised new education aid to war-scarred Liberia, as he capped off a five-country Africa trip. (AFP/Jim Watson)


Ooh, pretty! Liberia's girl president gave the whole party gorgeous sashes to wear! And Condi still looks so comfortable 'n' such! What a great trip it's been.

Looking at W, Laura, and Condi in their new finery, I can't help but be reminded of the children's story "The Three Bears." In this Liberian version: Papa Bear's sash is too small, Mama Bear's sash is too long, and Condi Bear's sash is juuust right!

It looks like some kind of set in the mythical country Eddie Murphy came from in "Coming to America."
Laura should never pack linen in her luggage. Those crotch wrinkles are not so good.
I guess she got a sash from Liberia because she was a liberian.
And Condi? She looks like George just let her out of the naughty corner moments before the photo op.
Her hair-do deserves some sort of elevated warning, PSP.
That pulled back, rubber banded thing denotes something.

Have you all noticed -- or am I going completely crazy -- that Dubya and Condi are starting to look more and more alike, almost as if separated at birth? It's not just the sashes ...

Why is Condi's sash a different color? Condi, Condi. You always have to be color-coordinated, even when it is in the interest of national security.

Meant to say...even when it is not in the interest of national security.

Karen, there's been just enough hairdo uncertainty lately to keep the meter at the "elevated" level.

My hero EJS is far better put together than any of those three Amer'kin morons could ever hope to be.

One of these things is not like the others...

WTF!?! Are the Bushes and Condi to good to stand on the same carpet with Ellen? Can I call her Ellen?

Condi must have lost her luggage, because she wearing one of Pickle's pants suits.

I'm hoping that Condi will find a way to work her sash into future ensembles back home. She can wear it to Lincoln and Kennedy Center galas and to intimate little piano recitals once she's a civilian... sort of like Michael Jackson and all his fantasy royal garb.

She n Laura really should have worn skirts like Ellenn did. No class.

Pickles can't wear skirts because of her unfortunate stumpy legs.
Condi couldn't wear a skirt that day because her legs were all scratched up when she tried to escape the clutches of Emmanual Okie Doki.

From the way they're all standing, I'm thinking we might have a rare instance of Bush-Bot, Pickles-bot, and Condi-Bot all together! A 'Bot Trifecta!

And I think Anon is right--Pickles lost her shoes!

This blog makes me happy.

"Sash Queens:" Are you implying that George is a queer, I mean, queen.

Laura looks like she's going barefoot. Do I see a bunion?

Now I have an earworm of Right Said Fred singing "I'm Too Sexy for my Sash" going around and around and around...

Dusty said...

Sweet Jaysus..Crazy eyes doesn't have her shoes on..wtf???

jterry said...

WAIT! I just noticed a random dude in back adjusting the stars and stripes on the right (as opposed to the star and stripes on the left). Plus there's a random bald head and pair of legs behind Shrub. I don't think this is in any pre-approved photo op schematic.

Good heavens! Does Condi really have movable parts?

He was a cheerleader.

Pickles is standing kind of close to the retard. Like she wants to keep Condor away from him.
