From The Sydney Morning Herald:
When you’re the single, dynamic secretary of state for the United States, you’re bound to pick up groupies in all corners of the international diplomatic scene.
But for Condoleezza Rice, who charmed diplomats from Rome to London to Pictou, Nova Scotia, perhaps the strangest of all has always been Muammar Gaddafi of Libya.
”Leezza, Leezza, Leezza … I love her very much,” Colonel Gaddafi told al-Jazeera in 2007, calling her his ”darling black African woman”.
Dr Rice visited him in September 2008, at the same compound that Libyan rebels are now ransacking. In greeting Dr Rice, Colonel Gaddafi at the time put his hand to his heart and asked her how she was.
”I’m very well, thank you,” she answered.
Undeterred by the language barrier, Colonel Gaddafi spoke to her in Arabic through an interpreter.
He was seeking to improve relations with the US, and he and Dr Rice shared an Iftar meal to mark the end of the daily fast during the holy month of Ramadan.
Colonel Gaddafi was so smitten that he apparently assembled – or had a minion assemble – a photo album of Dr Rice. Rebels going through his compound in Tripoli this week unearthed the photo album stocked with Dr Rice’s visage on every page.
US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland yesterday described the discovery as ”deeply bizarre and deeply creepy”.

Iftar is an anagram for “I fart!” Stinks for Rice. I wonder where she’s shopping for shoes tonight. 😆
i think condi and moamy are a perfect couple. his outfits and her shoes, what could be better?
Your article sounds so surprised. This guy’s been lying through his teeth and crapping on us for over 3 decades, and we should be surprised he’s a creep? Hey, Hitler might’ve killed 11 million people in his “Final Solution”, but he loved his dogs. THERE is a surprise!
So, Nonnie, getting more sleep these days? 😀
i wish i was getting more sleep. no matter how tired i am, i’m still up until 8 or 9 or even later in the morning. i think it’s some form of seasonal affective disorder. that usually occurs in the winter, but it’s been gray and raining every day here for weeks, so maybe my internal clock is confused or something. all i know is that it’s getting on my last nerve.
We keep almost the same hours nonnie. I’m so tired by the time 6 am rolls around, but then the sun tells me it is time to wake up. I use black-out shades and an eye mask…it’s the only way I could ever get to sleep. My youngest daughter had SAD. It disappeared completely after moving to the Strip (all the neon and lights helped).
i get so damned frustrated, because the whole day is gone by the time i’m able to function.
I can totes relate! Talk about Daffy, last year I ‘time shifted’ every 3-4 months…I would go to bed 1-3 hours later every day for a week or two until I was back on schedule (going to bed around 5 am). I haven’t done it this year as it is so disruptive. Living on the west coast has challenges as well: we are three hours behind the east coast so it can be impossible to conduct any kind of business during regular business hours. I wondered why you were up so late!
i’ll get myself on a more normal schedule, but that will only last for a few days, weeks, or months, and my inner clock resets to crazy hours again. even when i was a little kid, i was a nightowl.
I wonder what
her husbandPresident Bush thinks of that?
i think condi was just leading moamy on in order to make chimpy jealous. i keep thinking how she would look at chimpy with that vacant adoring stare that rethuglican wives are supposed to give their husbands. you know, the look that pickles could never muster up, no matter how high her xanax dosage was.
Pretty high up there on the creepy-o-meter.
moany or condi? 😉
Both, but Moamy rare higher!
they need a celeb nickname, like brangelina or filliam h. muffman (that always cracks me up). condimomo? momoleezza?
How about Rice-a-daffy?
I have just the music for that poster.
who’s the kangaroo? i don’t remember that character.
I had to look his name up. He’s Hippety Hopper. He was Sylvester’s foil in the shorts where Tweety Bird was absent. Most of them aren’t very memorable.
Honestly, I think they’d have been better off with Marvin the Martian or The Tasmanian Devil in the lineup. Both have stood the test of time.
i wonder when that was made. maybe it was when they first introduced hippety, and they didn’t know how forgettable he would be.
That intro was from 1964, which was the last year Hippety Hopper was drawn in a cartoon. According to Wikipedia, the character had been around since 1948. Here’s an intro from the 90s. Notice that he’s gone.
show business! when you’re hot, you’re hot, and when you’re not, you get kicked to the curb. poor hoppy! 😥
Ugh. Qaddafi, what are you, a teenage fanboy?
and he couldn’t pick a better crush? condi? really?
Me and Mo go way back (it’s my fascination with psychopathology). Still, he has nothing on Kim Jong-il.
momo sounds a lot like ahhhhnold.
Back when she took that trip I was imagining dunce boy appointing her the Queen of Sheba, with large palace and 10,000 oiled Nubian slaves. She’d play the part and not need rehearsin’. When she showed up on the news, in that era, I would supremely piss off my hyperight roomate by observing, then say “ain’t no man ever touched that” and how he would fume. Guess I should have said how pretty she was.
maybe chimpy thought that he would own iraq right after the invasion, and he was gonna make condi queen. that really would have pissed off deadeye dick, because he was planning on crowning lynne queen and liz as princess.
I always suspected Condi had that little sumpin sumpin.
like my mom used to say there’s a lid for every pot. there’s no accounting for taste.
Yeah, I don’t find her sexy myself, but she seems to hold a weird attraction for some men. Maybe it’s that dictatorial streak…..
maybe she turns on men with very, very little weewees. that space between her teeth, you know. 😉
p.s. you have no idea how ashamed of myself i am for that comment. 😳
It’s not even nearly as bad as some of my friends’ comments. No need for shame 😉
No matter what side of the fence anyone has Condi, I’ll take her side on this one against Moamy the Looney. But hey, the comments here are very entertaining though!
she’s just the lesser of 2 evils, but that doesn’t make her good.
Wonderful graphic, as per usual! I just adore it..so fitting m’dear, I can hear the music in the background. 😆
thank you, dusty my dahhhling! i hope you’ll stop by tomorrow night, because i was so inspired that i finished the poster a day in advance. i really like it, because i figured out a way to stick one of my favorite little jokes in it.
