Condi on Russia/Georgia Apocalypse: WhatEVER, I'm on Vacation


(AP Photo, 05-15-08)

Big mess? New world war? New cold war? Neocons' wet dreams come true? I'm sorry, but Condi's on vacation. She'll get back to you:

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has also been noticeably absent on the diplomatic scene, having failed to interrupt her holidays to fly to Tbilisi in support of the Georgian government.

Instead senior State Department official, Matthew Bryza, who oversees the Caucasus region was sent, two days later than planned, to join a joint EU-US mediation effort to win a ceasefire.


What, not good enough? OK, OK, she'll make some phone calls. Lots of phone calls.

I mean, GOD, leave her alone, OK?

Condi, when you're on vacation, for the love of Baby Jeebus please pick another hat besides the one that my grandma wears when she's in her garden. Oh, and keep your damn cell phone on when you're off gallivanting to wherever you go to get away from W's flaming bags of poo left on your doorstep. Thanks.

"Where In The World is Condi San Ferragamo?"

That hat! That smock!
Where the hell is she vacationing, inside the Smith and Hawkins catalog?

She's odious!

Well...she is!

It isn't enough for me to know that Condi is vacationing. I demand to know the where and what of it!

Judging from her garb, I'd hazard that she's plein air painting on the savanna.

What anonymous 11:38 said. I reread the AP/Raw Story article, and though it was filled with info, we never did find out where our fab Kremlinologist is "vacationing." Please, fellow Condomaniacs, we need to stay informed.

I'm struck by the angle of the landscape beyond the windows - odd. Is she in a blimp or something? Funicular? Skytram? Maybe overflying the gameparks in South Africa? Thank God she's a real Amurkan and not off somewhere exotic and foreign - Cokie's spot on!

OK! You guys aren't very observant! That's an old photo from three months ago used merely to illustrate the post because it looks vacationy. If you click the date under it, you'll learn all about when it was taken.

As for where she is now, well, I have no idea.

What else is new? "Dr" Rice has been vacationing for the past seven-plus years...

Hey I knew it was an old photo, I just had to use my Smith & Hawkins line.

That's her famous Masada trip, wherein she rode the gondolo instead of hiking up. Wherever she is, I know 2 things: 1) Karen is with her 2) There is a Manolo outlet nearby. Georgia? What Georgia? Oh THAT Georgia. It will wait. Fuck 'em.

And a fabulous line it was, Karen!

Hey, it was too late to change her reservations without a big fee, people. Hasn't that ever happened to you?

But I want to see this spare-- Matthew Brrzzzzt, is it?--Princess! Even if he was two days late and a brain short.

Correction: LAT says she's back on the case. And yes, I *did* read the date -- I just chose to rag on her further, as I am a bastard. But you knew that already, PSP.
