Dang! No Time for Shopping? This Trip Sucks!

Poor Condi. In Europe before Christmas (No saying "holidays" for this Secretary of State, thank you! It's not a religion, it's a lifestyle!), and no time for shopping.

Poor Condi has been spending her time issuing non-denials about CIA torture and secret prisons and renditions, trying to make nice with allies we've been...erm...deceiving, and attending press conferences where the newly minted German Chancellor publicly upbraided the United States for unlawfully detaining a German national.

How is Condi supposed to do her Christmas shopping for her husband's Bushie's present when she actually has diplomacy to do and stuff? Man, this trip is sucking.

UPDATE: Warning: Take blood pressure meds before reading this. (Hat tip to reader Percy for the link.) Some days being less informed looks more and more enticing -- but then, what would I do with all my free time?
