Back in Her Happy Place, Condi's Glad for Plaid

British Prime Minister Tony Blair greets US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice inside 10 Downing Street in London Thursday Jan. 18, 2007. Rice traveled to London on Thursday to brief Prime Minister Tony Blair on the renewed push for Middle East peace and American efforts to improve security in Iraq with a troop surge.

It's been quite a Condiweek, and it's nice for her to wind things up in a totally friendly environment. After all, this trip has been just like all her other recent forays: she arrives, she does lots of photo-ops, people smile at her indulgently, and when farewells are exchanged, they've already totally forgotten everything she had to say. This is the modus operandeezza.

And although Tony Blair provides a pillowy-soft landing for our adventuress, it's just such a shame that Condipal Jack Straw couldn't be there to cosset and amuse her, because his replacement, Mags Beckett, just ain't gonna cut it:

But that's OK! Because now she's in London, her trip is over, and now it's time for Condi to do what she does best: power shopping. Have a great weekend, Condi!

Is it just me, or does the top photo make it look like Condi is wearing a leather kilt? Is Condi's dominatrix gear making a comeback?

Now, let's see -- who's got the better looking teeth...Kondi! Our leader wins by her front-teeth gap!

God bless America.

Okay, quick, what's the worst?

1. Extraordinary rendition.
2. Warrantless wiretapping.
3. British dentistry.

And then there's the Tony Smile. It's almost as bad as the Crazy Eyes Laura Smile, but with more OhGodIDon'tWantToBeHere undertones.

Of course, I'm just a simple country photo de-constructor, and I could be wrong.

Bottom photo is nice, but I'd rather see Condi BEHIND the bars.

Black satin skirt meets quasi-subtle-yet-loud plaid suit.

I'm feeling a 'seventies itch kitsch' coming on like a hot butterscotch rash. I wanna see these two BOOGIE ALL NIGHT!!!!!

(cue Bee Gees music)

Ursual enters, swaying mightily, swinging John Travolta around her head---he hits the disco ball---dreams are shattered.

Condi in front of the bars...what's wrong with this picture? She has the perfect outfits (remember the thigh high boots) for a good Prison Chick Flick. Who would grovel though?

I think Linda Blair [no relation to Tony] would be up for it, guru. It would be kicky, fun, and nostaligic. BYOB!! (as in broom handle)

Naughty naughty Jess...but, would that be a plastic or wooden handled broom? Flying or impaling?
