From Rummy 2 Condi

PSP flashback to June 13, 2006

So much Condi lately! Yay! Just the other day I laughed when the erstwhile spokesmodel of state claimed to be "friends" with Donald Rumsfeld, when all of us Pony Pals™ knew that to be utterly false (see above and here, for instance). And now we have a new treat, a cache of FOIAed emails from Rummy to or about Condi, expertly presented at Esquire, of all places, by Peter Nelson. Oh, they are really good, really mean, and really funny because they are just hilariously passive-aggressive. My favorite, to Stephen Hadley:

I think we better get some talking points on what Condi thinks she meant when she said we have made "thousands of tactical errors."

Ha ha ha: what Condi thinks she meant. I just love that. Even better:

I don't have any idea what she is talking about...

Join the club, Rummy! Was he forgetting that nobody ever, ever knew what Condoleezza Rice was talking about for, like, the entirety of the Bush Administration? It was the secret to her success!

Ouch! If I didn't hate Rummy so much, I'd think he was kinda clever.

If only our Friendly Giantess Ursula would return; I'd much rather read about her than boring old Condi.

The whole Bush administration was full of passive aggressive types, except when you gave them an army to play with, then they'd just be aggressive aggressive.

Awwwwwwww. So nostalgic for teh Condi days. Back when it was so serious that it was frickin' hilarious.

Now its all so serious and frickin' annoying.

Thanks for this.
