What Would Condi Do? The Secretary of State's Shoes, Hairdos, and Fabulous Fashions, Part Three, 2007

The magical gust of wind, AP Photo, 01-17-07

2007 was a year when Condi appeared busier than ever (while accomplishing nothing), but the bloom was off the rose. Journalists like Glenn Kessler and Elizabeth Bumiller now were regularly reporting the more embarrassing aspects of Condi's career, and some began to wonder if maybe the airheaded, photo-op-obsessed shopaholic portrayed on this blog and Wonkette* (PSP alone became too small to contain all my Condi musings) wasn't the real Condi, after all. In response, Condi got a little more insulated, a little less fun, but full of surprises nonetheless. The highlights from year three:

Not the hair! Not the hair!

Stay tuned for the last installment!

*Note: several pictures in Wonkette's archives seem to have not survived their move from Gawker's servers. This is unfortunate.

Here's 2005, 2006, 2008/9.

What can be said to attest to all that you have given us? I feel rather like a post-modern Lulu standing in front of a very non-Sidney Poitier PSP, with this song floating from my lips...

(in case anyone is so lost, please sing to the tune of "To Sir, With Love")

Those bloggirl days of photo shop and writing posts are gone
But in my mind I know they will still live on and on
But how do you thank someone who has taken you from Condi hair and shoes?
It isn't easy, but I'll try

If you wanted the blogosphere I would write across it in letters
That would soar a thousand pixels high 'To PSP, With Love'

Regrading the 2007 McCain photo-op, we see the first instance of the pattern detected by many during the election that Walnuts might have some problems looking Those People in the face.
