Imagine YOU in a Photo-Op with Condi! It's Surprisingly Cheap!

What's Condi been up to? Not much! But now, thanks to Pony Pal™ Jessica, we know the awesome news that photo-ops with the Condibot are to be had for the totally affordable price of $250 each, $500 per couple. Just imagine it! Do you think it'll be matching armchairs set-up? That's less than a pair of Condi-worthy shoes! I'll pass, thanks, but wow, some Pony Pal should totally do it. The bad part is that you have to sit through her giving a speech about, like, "Perspectives on Peace and War", so OMG, it'll totally be blah blah blah Annapolis, so boring, no way.

Do you know what I love? I love it when people in other countries put on special puppet shows starring George Bush and Condi. On Saturday, a new Czech production debuted:

So totally cute! I like this picture, too, because you can just make out a tiny Condi head with the international "NO" symbol on the sign carried by the lady:

As much as I love these fun puppet shows, they always seem to end the same way, with everybody loving the puppets so much they set them on fire, so imagine my delight when this production ended differently, with the adorable puppets being thrown comically into the river:

What strikes me is the extent to which the the ensemble on puppet-Condi (hmmm...beige raw-silk A-line with a draped taupe jersey long-sleeve bolero - divine!) is so much more flattering than anything the real article has worn in public...

Who gets to keep the photo op money, her?
I wonder how many Pony Pals it would take to get you a plane ticket to her next photo op and add the cost of an 8x10?
Hell, you have like 20,000 hits a day, if we all pay pal a buck we could send you first class, put you in a fine hotel, clothe you in the finest mohair vintage and throw in a pair of new Hush Puppies.
What say you?

Karen, I don't even get 1/10 of 20,000 hits a day.

I must say my heart soared as I viewed that photos of the effigies being dumped in the river. I'll go out on a limb and state for the record, that not only is this the best photo of effigies being thrown in the river I've ever seen; it's the best photo of effigies being thrown in the river possible!

I've never seen better! It's true!

Bush as an empty suit. Too funny.

Aw, they should've stripped them nekkid before tossin' 'em in the drink.

That Condi dress is super chic.
