Oh, By The Way, Condi Still Exists

It's been a while, but lookie, a few Condithings happened while we weren't paying attention:

As relevant as ever, I'd say! And here she is receiving for her contribution a "souvenir" (their words, not mine):

You know what's nice, now, for Condi? That souvenir? Now that she's no longer SoS, she gets to keep it! Yay for nice things for Condi!

And finally, from a few days earlier, my favorite Condiproduct in some time:

It makes me wonder if there's a rider in Condi's contract that states that she must always be accompanied by oversize text stating who she is.

And yes, she endorsed Carly Fiorina, and that's funny because Carly Fiorina is funny.

I can't imagine anyone wanting to hear her views on anything now that she's returned to being an ultra right-wing moneygrubber civilian.
But there is one bright side of the retired Condi--I have never seen her in a photo with Sarah Palin, which tells me she's at least got that much sense.

It's so nice to see the one who originally brought us together... even if she doesn't have anything to say about Asia's future.

But I wonder what you think about the mixing of prints and patterns in this week's NYT Style article.

Please consider as fodder for a future posting.

Condi looks so smiley now! She's living large and loving it, GWB free!

Say what you will, but Condi looks damn fine.

She's livin' large and keepin' presents! Yay!

There is a very high res version of the second photo, if you follow the link. You can read some of what it says on the "souvenir". There are four "Hand Painted Snuff Bottles". Wonder how she'll use them?

"Hand Painted Snuff Bottles" you say?

She's gotta have somewhere nice to put her opium.

I wonder if she'll get any matching armchair photos again, though.

And it looks like she's just in a holding pattern of ennui with her hair. Then again, maybe she's given up caring about it, with no one left to watch and no AP photographers to amuse.

The Joker needs the Batman, after all.
