Oh, boo! Condi has canceled her trip to the United Arab Emirates. Why? According to her official spokesliar, Sean McCormack, she decided to hang around so that she could "pitch in" (his words!) on that Global Economic Crisis™ problem thingy.
Is anybody buying that, even for a second? Financial expert Condi? Please, Mr. McCormack, you are totally going to have to do better than that. Tell the UAE that she just washed her hair and can't do a thing with it, or something, anything, more plausible than that.
