Condi Hits the XBox Scene

I'm not sure exactly what the above screenshot represents (you can see the whole thing here), but Madame Secretary appears to be branching out, offering her unique brand of "help" to the video game set. Is following Virtual Condi's advice a good idea in this game? Will listening to her actually advance you, unlike in real life? Are there 3D matching armchairs available? Will the character morph into Bill Richardson in November?

More importantly, is this supposed to be ancient Egyptian Condi with a full-on hairdo alert situation?

So many questions! Big glittery sneezes to Pony Pal Jodnus for sending these baffling images my way!

She's got a bit of a mannish look to her, more than usual.

"Dr" Rice -- This arachnid-like, arriviste, a-kissing provincial should be permanently exiled to cyberspace/Second Life, where she "can be all she can be" (how I tire of that meaningless phrase) -- a "Condibot," an "avatar," a totally unreal disposable item, the Bush made-to-order "bomb-'em-foreigners" Secretary of State -- a role she accepted more than willingly, given her mindless Walmart-like ("sell the goods, no matter how lousy they are") ambition.

P.S. Am puzzled why the witty/delightful PSP refers to the monolingual Secretary as "Madame" -- after all, she is not French and cannot speak the language. Is the wondrous PSP concerned, subconsciously and perhaps with understandable patriotic shame, that, without adding an "e" to Condi's "Madam" title, darling Sparkle would be Kondi-fessing that our Secretary is actually an American? Or is "Madam" without an "e" a sad reminder of what the Secretary really is, in places like Nevada and Washington, D.C.?

I'm not so sure it's mannish, fran. If it wasn't for the hair I'd swear
that face was Maya Angelou's.

And doesn't "Dr" Rice speak fluent Russian? "Da. Nyet, nyet, nyet, nyet"
she was quoted as saying in Moscow when asked if she was going to run
for President. Now that's fluent Russian!

I love that message: "With Fundamentalism, ground units will
receive +1 attack, however Libraries and Universities will
cease to produce science." Outstanding!

Like in real life, Virtual Condi can tell you about things that happened over which you had no positive influence, that you might have prevented if you had been engaged in the world in a meaningful way other than expensive invasions.

She's an excellent choice.

Virtual Condi's got a much bigger rack.

"Madame" just sounds fancier.

Word of advice: Do NOT click on the "full-on hairdo alert situation" link during meals.

And here's the V-Condibot in palace courtier garb. Maybe she should don this

The game's virtual Alexander the Great is quite hunky.

Oh, PSP, please make this image go away. Or at least put a wick on her head and light it.
