Thousands die, Condi goes shopping
There's not much to add to this unshocking tale of shocking callousness and bad taste (and we're not talking about the Ferragamo pumps). From Gawker:
"According to Drudge, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has recently enjoyed a little Broadway entertainment. And Page Six reports that sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s also working on her backhand with Monica Seles. So the Gulf Coast has gone all Mad Max, women are being raped in the Superdome, and Rice is enjoying a brief vacation in New York. We wish we were surprised."
"What does surprise us: Just moments ago at the Ferragamo on 5th Avenue, Condoleeza Rice was seen spending several thousands of dollars on some nice, new shoes (weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve confirmed this, so her new heels will surely get coverage from the WaPoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Robin Givhan). A fellow shopper, unable to fathom the absurdity of RiceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s timing, went up to the Secretary and reportedly shouted, Ã¢â‚¬Å“How dare you shop for shoes while thousands are dying and homeless!Ã¢â‚¬Â Never one to have her fashion choices questioned, Rice had security PHYSICALLY REMOVE the woman."
"Angry Lady, whoever you are, we love you. You are a true American." (Gawker)
