Meanwhile, Condi's Getting a Little Action, Too!

As I write this, the conference is still going on, so who knows what Condi had to say, but the shindig did kick off with this bizarre exchange:

But what could have been austere talk about falling stock prices and glass ceilings drew laughter and gasps from many of the 10,000 women in the audience when Buffett, playing to the crowd, hit Matthews with a particularly challenging question: "If you could have changed your sex into that of a woman, would you have?"

Matthews smiled sheepishly, then rambled about the virtues of womanhood.

Schwarzenegger eventually reminded him: "You didn't answer the question." Then Schwarzenegger took off on his own ruminations about the power and potential of women, although he pointed out that, "Here in California, they do have men that become women."

Matthews fired back: "Is that what you mean by 'girlie boys'?" a reference to Schwarzenegger's infamous label for gutless legislators.

Oh, touché!

Why do they look like they're pushing each other away? Their body language looks like when you try to push the wrong end of magnets together, like they are repelling each other.

What is the deal with the Times using that giant photo of three white men for their cover photo for an article about a Women's conference? Genius!

Catchpa: dicsjft ... dicks just fit?

Whoa! Condi got a substantial haircut and no mention of it?
I wish the alert system was on 'guarded' so you could bump it up to 'elevated.'

Mea Culpa. I've really neglected the CHAS lately.

I was at the conference. Condibot's helmet hair looked great for a change. It is shorter, has body, flows nicely, and she shook it as if she had Parkinson's or some other, how long this will last???

Someone should tell Maria it certainly is possible to be too thin. Yikes!

Bizarre is right. WTF!?

I'm still trying to get over the thought of Condi and Maria doing one of those Xander/Cordelia love-hate kisses on Buffy. Blech.
