"Let Them Eat Waterlogged Cake"
Gawker reports that, while thousands of people are dying on the Gulf Coast, and thousands more have lost everything and are enduring abject misery, Condoleezza Rice ... is buying shoes.
Just moments ago at the Ferragamo on 5th Avenue, Condoleeza Rice was seen spending several thousands of dollars on some nice, new shoes (we’ve confirmed this, so her new heels will surely get coverage from the WaPo’s Robin Givhan). A fellow shopper, unable to fathom the absurdity of Rice’s timing, went up to the Secretary and reportedly shouted, "How dare you shop for shoes while thousands are dying and homeless!" Never one to have her fashion choices questioned, Rice had security PHYSICALLY REMOVE the woman.Gawker commented, "Angry Lady, whoever you are, we love you. You are a true American." Hear, hear! Several thousands of dollars could buy a lot of shoes for people who barely escaped with their lives.
