Last week I showed a picture (with no comment; I knew all of you would fill the gap) of cadaverous, horrifying Dick Cheney at the ground breaking ceremony for the George W. Bush
Ugh. My God. It looks like Bush is about to French Condi's nose. Barf. Here's something else: Condi and Crazy Eyes Laura were dressed nearly identically in their little red suits. What does it all mean?
As an aside, it seems like Condi's book basically sank without a trace. Oh, sure, it sold a ton of copies, as I predicted, but it never made the NY Times Bestsellers List and appears to have left no lasting marks upon the world. In this way, the book nicely symbolizes Condi's career: it made a good first impression, but accomplished nothing.
Speaking of good first impressions, here's my favorite photo from the ground breaking ceremony, also from the Associated Press. I can't for the life of me figure out why they released this wonderful photo, but I'm glad they did:

Well done, Mr. Scott. I hope Cheney didn't get too much drool all over it.
