Conversational Hebrew

This little tidbit from the times gives one a pretty good idea how people think what they really think about Condoleeza Rice:
The long buildup to Annapolis, together with Ms. Rice’s many trips to the region, have given birth to a new verb in Israeli government circles: “lecondel,” meaning, to come and go for meetings that produce few results. The word is based on Ms. Rice’s first name.
This misadministration still shocks me with its incompetence.
