Condi's back in DC, and it's as if she never left, seeing as how her trip to the Middle East was pretty much totally pointless.
Meanwhile, busy cabinet official Laura "Crazy Eyes" Bush has pretty much taken over the entire administration. It's strange that you don't really read or hear much skepticism in the media about Laura's unanticipated foreign policy expertise. How did she all of a sudden 1. know about and 2. care about whatever is going on in that distant, possibly fictitious land of Myanmar? Or is it Burma? I wish they'd decide!
Love Condi's kicky, English-style jacket, though! It's important for her to look fabulous while her duties are handed to the boss's wife.
