Condibot Malfunction?

Several Pony Pals™ have emailed me to report that the Condibot appeared to be "experiencing emotions" during her little presser thing about the Obama election dealy. Well, what can I say? It certainly was convincing! Was it sincere? Well, I have a hard time ever applying that word to Dr. Ferragamo, so let's not push it now, OK?

But... oh, c'mon. It's not like Condi is a hardcore right winger. She couldn't possibly have been happy about the McCain campaign or the racist hatemongering whipped up by that dreadful she-creature from Alaska. Condi has always been for Condi, and if she saw certain parallels between her biography and Obama's, well, of course that would make her emotional because it made her think of herself and kinda validated the strained self-narrative she likes to present. I don't really think her warm fuzzies were fake. Sure, let's leave it at that. Did Condi vote for Obama? Like I said, she's no right winger, so I'm thinking probably... no, I just can't say. Who knows? She's so mysterious! I've been obsessively documenting Condi for years now, and I still find her totally confusing.

But! She wore pink! And that makes me happy.

Great analysis, PSP. It is always about Condi, the mysterious narcissistic Condi. Come out already, Condi. You'll really feel the weight lifted from your shoulders, even though you won't be able to marry Bean when you return to California.

Maybe it's just my monitor, but it looks like her lipstick clashed with her suit.

Relax those neck muscles, Condi.

There also seems to be a problem with the Condibot's upper right mandible. I think it is time for maintenance.

if she came out with a 'fro, you'd know!

Who will we follow in the Administration of Hope and Glory like our dear Condi?

It looks like she tried to match her lipstick to her suit and then failed...Oh Condi, emotions are no reason to go all matchy matchy on us. Really. I though you knew better.

Looks more like coral to me.

Now she gets to have a new crush.

I guess the Condibot is made out of some high tech plastic, and we don't have to worry about it rusting or anything.

Do you think that it'll be contributed to the Smithsonian once she leaves DC?

She's a riddle, wrapped up in a mystery, inside an enigma, trapped in a closet.

Or it's just a programming malfunction.

I have to say, Michelle Obama makes some fashion decisions I like and others, not so much. The black and red thing at the celebration in Grant Park was wrong on many levels.

She intersects the world of fashion and politics, if not exactly diplomacy, so maybe she could be part of the Sparkle universe in the future.

But for true glam wonderment, Michelle Obama is no Cindy McCain, and she never will be.

A little off topic but did anyone see "W" and did you like the portrayal of Condi? I did not, I did not like the slumped shoulders or the sniveling delivery by Thandie Newton. I might not be the biggest fan of Condoleezza but I think she carries herself well.
