When secretaries of state usually meet it is in national capitols at conference tables as long as W list of misadventures, mistakes and missed opportunities. But in Bushplomacy open communication with any nation that cares more about its national interests than Rove's obsessions is verboten. And so SoS Rice has had to meet on ferries under dining room tables and in johns with johns just to talk to thousand points of evil light nations.
The clandestine communications this week took place at a Borders Bookstore on the border between Iraq and Syria. Spies from forty nations have reported on their blogs that Rice chatted for a half an hour through a space in the Romance section of a bookshelf between Jean Paul Satre and Danielle Steele. Syrian SoS Muhammad Beanz was reported by most to be wearing a cowboy hat over his sheik helmet while Ms Rice also known as Mrs Bush had on an head to toe Burka with new Air Jordans.
Beanz and Rice's topics surrounded oil but the only agreement they could reach was on the production of gas!
