Condi 'n' Daffy!


Combo picture of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi (R) and U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice meeting in a government compound in central Tripoli in this video grab taken September 5, 2008. REUTERS/Reuters TV (LIBYA)


Yay! If they were to get together, we could call them Condafi! I love the surveillance style shown in the above photo, and I love that Reuters caught the most important moment, when Daffy presented Condi with the sacred matching armchairs. Mission Accomplished™!!! And here is the proper photo-op:



So impressive! And what did they talk about? Oh, I dunno... things about stuff?

To The Honorable PSP:

When "Dr" Rice rides off into the sunset, allow this faithful reader of your unique, brilliant blog to propose you as our next Secretary of State.

Gaddafi:
"A book of verse.
A jug of wine.....
I wonder if she has ever been in a tent?"

OK, anonymous, but only because everybody now is apparently qualified for everything. Yay!

I absolutely love how, since apparently Libya has no traditional national dress, Chairman Daffy just goes ahead and makes it up as he goes along - sometimes it's leisure suits, sometimes something vaguely Lawrence-of-Tripoli, and sometmes, as here - well, what appears to be a wedding gown/muu muu teamed up with an Africa-scheme kente stole and matching brooch. Also - treasured the glimpse of his Amazons in the TV coverage...

um, do we find Saran Wrap™ still covering that plate of dates, or whatever hostly delectable that is?

Too much buzz of flies following members of the Bush administration?

Where is the flower arrangement?

Lulu Maude said...

No flowers. Just a platter of dates.

The years haven't been kind to the man. Jumbled ensembles and a fear of Dubya.

Something is up here.
Because there is no symmetry in the photo op, no floral arrangement and no matching armchairs, I can only conclude one thing.
This is not a diplomatic mission, it's a job interview.
Condi figures if she could run America's foreign policy, Libya's woud be a snap.

P.S. And you gotta love the jumbo ashtray on the table.

So, are we no longer spelling his name with the terrorist "Q" now that we're totally BFFs again?

Matty Boy said...

The Princess' own insights, eight comments, and I'm the first one to write... Arab Kleenex! And some tacky off-brand, too.

Also, the glass ashtray. Very thoughtful in a completely behind the times sort of way.

Since when is Carlos Santana standing in for Omar? Moments later he whipped his ax from behind his back and launched into a solo version of "Black Magic Woman" much to Condi's surprise and love of being seranaded to.

Condi perhaps would make a spicy addition to his hareem...

But don't you think that even the Leader looks a little puzzled whilst he gazes at Condi?

Well, yes.
Yes, we all are.

So much to see here! First off, what's with Condi's demure leg crossing? Not her usual style at all.
And poor Cut-off Guy. Guess he's just not as "major" as SantanaDaffy and Condi. Even the aide, with his daring orange tie, got full-on body exposure.
Finally, methinks Daffy's started using the same hair dye as Reagan.
