Coming Soon to an Informercial Near You...


(Diddy as Condi, 08-28-05, Reuters)

Were you worried? Worried that Condi wouldn't have anything to do? Fear not, because Condi has signed with the William Morris Agency:

WMA co-chief operating officer Wayne Kabak said that the agency was struck by her well-rounded resume in policy, politics and music, her interest in sports and other areas. Rice is an accomplished concert pianist but also a big-time NFL fan.

"It's more than just books, it's much more than just lectures," Kaback said. "We're here to help her create and enhance an agenda that is very important to her in her post-government career."

That will also include philanthropic efforts, particularly her interest in classical music, her efforts to get disadvantaged children college educations and initiatives to help U.S. children become global citizens.


Sounds philanthropic! Also: lucrative. WMA wouldn't have taken her on without being sure she'd bring home the bacon. Isn't it nice to know that Condi will be so richly rewarded for her fine performance as secretary of state and (especially) national security adviser?

It's too bad Condi isn't a little more imaginative, because I love Defamer's idea:

Condoleezza Rice has signed with WMA, who'll negotiate books, speaking engagements, and For Condoleezza or Money, a potential reality show in which a mansion full of horny twentysomethings would compete for her love.


Now THAT I would pay to see.

Is it can be keep Condi out of California higher education tiem pleez?

Actually as a UC employee I should take the "Stanford's pain is our gain" party line, but honestly I don't care. We need fewer political jackasses in positions of power in academia.

Does this mean we'll be seeing Condi conducting orchestras at half-time next year? Or conducting armchair interviews with retired athletes?

Both ideas are sure to sell tickets!

Gosh, Princess, I would hope the vetting committee took this blog into account. It is a kind of curriculum vitae of Condi's past eight years!

WTF is a "global citizen"?

Can't wait to see Condi ice-skating again!

Okay, her signing with WMA finally proves it.
She DOES have balls.

Too bad she didn't have these high minded ideals when she was at the State Dept or the White House.

Love the photoshop, Princess.

I love all the philathropic stuff, but the Republican DNA is going to kick in and she is gonna need to GIT PAID pretty soon.

My money is on the NFL, probably the 49ers.

How about a SuperMario Condibot to perform her many functions?

PSP should be entitled to a percentage of the (truly) gross.

Not Photoshopped, Matty!

I don't mean to be nit-picky, but exactly what has Condi "accomplished" as a "concert pianist?" Far be it from me to question La Condi's credentials, but playing to captive audiences at state dinners around the world doesn't really count as "concert" performance.

I think she should go in for some Ice Skating appearances.
