Constipated/Not Constipated

Condi 'n' Kozy, yay! They're like theater masks, but thrillingly alive! Look how happy Kozy looks, like somebody who finds themselves suddenly in the position of being a World Player for the very first time! So cute! And Condi... well, Condi looks like somebody whose vacation just got cut short and who is being punished by not getting to go to the Olympics (is that thing still on?) closing ceremony:

"Georgia is a priority right now, she's got Georgia on her mind," said the senior State Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

"I mean it's quite possible that she may not make that trip but I don't want to say that it is not going to happen."


Oh, ye of little faith, Mr. Anonymous Diplobot! Since when has Condi let "working" get in the way of traveling?

If she doesn't go, please take note of her mighty sacrifice.

Meeting at Bormes-les-Mimosa might explain the open collars, but Condi managed to borrow a string of pearls; for clutching, I guess.

If she looks irked, it's because Carla makes her look almost dowdy.

Thank goodness she's just wearing a yeloow ajcket and not a yellow ensemble, because when her discomfort ends, boy could that be embarrassing.

"Georgia is a priority right now, she's got Georgia on her mind," said the senior State Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Why in the world does a senior State official need anonymity to say the most obvious, trite (as PSP points out in the post above) and boring thing imaginable?

I would think the diplobot wouldn't want to admit he/she had actually used the "GA on her mind" line. I know I wouldn't.
