Condi Unable to Sign India Nuke Deal Because –Whoopsie!– It Isn't Legal Yet


U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (R) shakes hands with India's Foreign Minister Pranab Mukherjee before their meeting in New Delhi October 4, 2008. Rice arrived in India on Saturday after Congress ratified a historic nuclear pact, but was unlikely to sign the deal during her visit because of a bureaucratic 'glitch'. (B Mathur/Reuters)


BREAKING: Condoleezza Rice still exists, and she's still totally the secretary of state! Neat! She's having a working weekend, and she met a little man with branches sprouting from his body, but... Uh, oh! They can't seal their little pact thingy because somebody (George Bush) forgot to sign the legislation:

NEW DELHI: India and the US were unable to ink the pathbreaking civil nuclear agreement on Saturday with New Delhi making it clear that it would do so only after President George W. Bush signs it into a law, an occasion when it expects certain misgivings to be cleared.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Bush's signing of the legislation, which was approved by the US Congress earlier this week, into law had got delayed due to "administrative" reasons and there were "no open issues" involved.


Well, my goodness, I hope they get those "certain misgivings" settled, because the world obviously needs more countries with nuclear weapons.

Another triumph for Condi!

We've seen the Indian fellow before, when Ursula towered over him in a post a while back. Instead of wearing lifts, I guess he's decided to become a flowering plant to look taller.
