Priorities, Priorities - Condi Channels Imelda Marcos

by Steve

While CNN reports that the Feds are nowhere to be found, that babies and the elderly are dying in the Superdome, and that people have been left out in the open without shelter, food, or water on streets and overpasses for days without assistance, where was Condi the last several days?

She was going to Spam-a-Lot on Broadway, hitting tennis balls with Monica Seles, and buying thousands of dollars of new shoes in New York this morning at Ferragamo’s. From the website today:

According to Drudge, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has recently enjoyed a little Broadway entertainment. And Page Six reports that she’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 (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.
Angry Lady, whoever you are, we love you. You are a true American.

And what did the RNC do today in response to the news from New Orleans? They sent out an email pushing for the repeal of the estate tax next week.

Folks, you are going to see the collapse of the GOP in the coming weeks.
