Phoning it In



The good news is that Condi has done her first post-Bush interview, a chat with the very friendly Stanford Report. The bad news is that there's nothing to take away from it. Honestly, I don't know why the reporter bothered; he could have easily cut 'n' pasted her responses from other recent interviews. So boring.

I guess it's kinda funny that she says she'll go to the dorms and have dinner with students (and photographers? Please?), because she might be unaware that not all the students are thrilled about her return.

The outlook for surrealistically pointless, non-sequitur publicity stunts, I'm afraid, is grim.

So regretting my decision not to go to Stanford right now. SO Much!

Honey, the Stanford News Service isn't journalism. It's a PR shop. It is to be expected.

Are you saying there will be lots of pnsps's or that there won't be? Because I would love a whole slew of those.

Perhaps someone will lob a chunk of Mystery Meat at her, if she's dining in a student cafeteria. Think of the art movements such a display could spawn!

Comment: At that price, I'd rather read Plato in a public library than listen to "Dr" Rice.

Don't lose hope that eventually she'll be put on trial for war crimes. That would be fun! She'll get to go to the Hauge and shop for shoes!

PSP, you missed the tidbit in the Washington Post's "Reliable Source" about Condi tickling the ivories at not one but TWO church services this last Sunday. Surely there is a devout Presbyterian out there who took pics and will share them with you and the world?!
