I did want to mention Condimelda's press conference, at least in passing, but it became a separate topic with Chris Clarke's brilliant new moniker for the Scary Spice* of international diplomacy. Condimelda turns up on Friday, just like Bush's other wife, only any decent person would have been ashamed to show her face, let alone commandeer fifteen minutes of air time in a sorry charade that did not even achieve the level of pretending she was doing anything. Condimelda should have simply announced that her resignation would be on the President's desk when he returned and fled the stage never to return. That fifteen minutes could have been used to help missing persons find each other, or to locate some more people in dire straits for the Secretary of Homeland Security [sic] to rush supplies to as we speak.
* For once, I apologize for any offense to any Spice Girl living or dead or in between.
