Yes, well... Condi. Condi's still coasting. It's funny that some of you have expressed concern about what I'll do when she's gone, but it should be obvious that she already checked out a long time ago. I like seeing the rare posterior view of the hairdo, though. It's so rigid, so unitary! It reminds me of the hair on Lego™ Mini Figures™.
There's always the chance, though, that this is the labor-saving, Disneytronic Condibot sent in America's Princess Diplomat's stead, and that would certainly account for the manufactured quality of the hairdo. But, honestly, is there really much of a difference between Washington hairdressers and robot manufacturers? Wittier repartee?
Whatever! The difference between Condoleezza Rice and her animagic stand-in is fairly academic by now. Here's a photo of Dr. Ferragamo doing her "I'm concerned" dance for the Ukraine guy:

I must say that suit is as costly looking as it is unflattering. I don't have a problem with the skirt, but that jacket is just not tailored well! It could look good! But it doesn't! Why, Condi, why?
But did Our Heroine accomplish anything on her fancy New York trip? Yes:

Ooh, a memorandum of understanding! Fancy! We totally heart those! HOORAY 4 CONDI!!
