So Daffy's creepy photo album of fab Condipics? When I heard about it, I assumed he had become infatuated with La Belle Ferragamo after meeting her in September, 2008. I thought Condi had so dazzled the nutty despot that, dazed and lovestruck, he had turned to scrapbooking as a way to make up for her absence.
But no! According to one of the guys in the Conditourage, Daffy already had the scrapbook and insisted on showing it to Condi 'n' Company, creating what was no doubt a uniquely awkward atmosphere. Can you imagine? He showed Condi the obviously creepy and stalker-y Condibook!
So that photo up top is Daffy when he glimpses his African Princess in the flesh for the very first time. Imagine how thrilled and adrenalized he is! I think he thinks he has a chance with her! It makes my heart
The saddest thing ever, though, is that dismal photo-op set. Poor Moammar's hope to win Condi's heart was dashed by that tacky decor before she even walked in the door, and he didn't even know it. It really is enough to make you cry.
And it goes without saying, of course, that the "new era in ties between the United States and the oil-rich country" probably didn't turn out the way Condi expected it to.
