OK, I was trying to figure out what Condi's doing in Singapore other than the dinner parties and the dressing up, but every time I tried to read about it, I fell asleep. It's something about ASEAN? Huh? OMG, so boring. I like that she stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel! Very nice! And the meeting? It was good, no surprises:
SECRETARY RICE: Look, it was a good meeting, no surprises.
That's the spirit, Condi! If you're going to reach for the stars, reach for the lowest one you can grab! Also, as much as we've criticized America's Princess Diplobot for her fashion mishaps, let's give her some credit here for the lovely, lemony silk suit and her perfectly matched Manolos and discrete clutch. She's still occasionally got it! I also enjoyed this pose:
And to top it all off, an absolutely superb matching armchairs photo-op with Singapore's Foreign Minister:
So I'd say that with the meaningless agreements agreed upon, the outfits lovely and the matching armchairs achieved, we can call this trip an unequivocal success! Hooray for Condi!
