From R. Miller:


Jessica Coen stands by her story and says she called and confirmed the story with Ferragamo on 5th Ave.

I called and was told the manager was named Donna. Donna denied all knowledge of the incident as of 5 pm.

Don’t let the cover-up continue!!!!

Please call Donna and ask why the discrepancy…and call Amy Robb of corporate and ask her as well (numbers below):


Condi Rice was buying thousand dollar shoes while people drown in New Orleans.

A true patriot gave her a dressing down since she should’ve been attending to getting some foreign aid for our catastrophic disaster in New Orleans.

And as if the true patriot and American Citizen and Ferragamo’s customer where a SERF she was KICKED OUT for speaking her mind to our errant public servant.

And now the store is lying through their teeth that the incident even took place.

Call, people! Call as if our democracy depended on it!!

DONNA, manager, 5th Ave, Ferragamo’s, 212-759-3822

AMY ROBB, public relations, corporate, Ferragamo’s, 212-754-5200

  • Good god,
    This is disgusting. People buy shoes. Just because Condi is a government offical this does not mean she should drop everything she is doing and race down to New Orleans to wipe fevered brows and hold hands.
    Have you been shopping since the hurricane you self righteous bigot?!
    As a public figure, she is expected to be well presented and would most likely be mocked for her cheapness if she bought shoes from K-Mart.
    This webiste is an absolute waste of space. Rather than sitting down complaining about your poor unfortunate selves, you should get out and DO something about it.
    Handle the Jandle

  • Only a condescending twit would defend anybody spending $1000 on a pair of shoes. It just shows how out of touch Bush and his Cabal are with the people.

    While New Orleans drowned Bush played guitar and Condi spent thousands shopping for shoes.

    The twit & I do agree one thing: neither one of us was suprised at this.

  • $1000 dollar shoes? Sorry. but this is just pain ignorance. I work in fashion, and the most a pair of ferragamo’s cost is $400 (Boots are of course costlier). Consider, as well, that they are thought of as “high-end” shoes for the older, practical, non-sensical woman. I’m not defending Condi….she’s just like her fear-mainpulating, war-mongering, tough talking associates in the white house…but please…shoes? Red herring attacks like these only diminish your arguments against the deterioration of our democracy.

  • Those without sin cast the first stone.

    What a bunch of liberal hypocrites who sit around looking for a conservative to attack. If you are pointing your finger at Condi another finger is pointing back at you. . . a thumb in YOUR eye.

    HYPOCRITES – you all are!!! HYPOCRITES!!!!

  • I thank God that I am not like Condolessa Rice….

    For you Christians out there here is your Bible study for the day. (Rest of you can just skip this post.)

    re: spiritual hypocrisy

    Luke 18:11 ”The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

    And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

    I tell you, this man went down to his house justified [rather] than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.”

    re: The Rich Young Ruler

    Matthew 19:16 – “And, behold, one came and said unto him [Jesus], Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

    And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

    He saith unto him, Which?

    Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and [thy] mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

    The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

    Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go [and] sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come [and] follow me. But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.”

    The pious, young man was boasting in his own righteousness having declared that he had fulfilled what his religious society, and the Torah required of him. Was he perfect in God’s eyes? was the question.

    Perfect, no. Jesus was showing this young man that he was a hypocrite in God’s eyes, don’t you see?

    Mankind are all hypocrites and you do not have the right to critice Ms. Rice or anyone else.

    Only a perfect person has the right to judge others.

    The young man, like the rest of us, had only done just what the law required, and what he was willing to do, and no more. The Law never mande any man righteous.

    God’s righteous standard of the Law demands more than the letter … it demands the Spirit of the Law and perfection.

    No one is “good” but God.

    The young man couldn’t attain perfect righteousness, and neither can any man on this planet. Your works will not save you. This is the point of this message.

    Jesus, however, by living on this planet as a man was doing exactly that; living perfectly without sin. He was keeping the Torah both in the letter but greater than the letter, He was keeping the Spirit of the Law every single hour from the hour from the frist hour he drew breath to the last because He could. Thus Jesus is the only man who has ever, or every way “fulfilled the whole Law perfectly.” (Read the book of Romans.)

    Why was the Law given to man then if he could not keep it perfectly? God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses and instituted the blood sacrifices for a purpose. It was to show all of mankind their inability to live a righteous life out side of God’s help; to prepare man’s heart for the horrific penalty that must be paid in blood with the perfect sacrifice. It was suppose to be repugnant to man.

    There was one coming that could and would fulfill God righteous Law perfectly, and be the ultimate “lamb” sacrifice; Messiah, Behold the Lamb of God. It is His perfect life and resurrection that Christians are trusting in; faith-ing in.

    To repeat, man can’t keep the Law; he doesn’t have the will or ability. That was God’s message to mankind to show him his need for a savior who could and did keep it perfectly for man. God set man up to fail so that he would come to Him as a needy person. (The Apostle Paul, a Jew, member of the Sanhedrin, writes in Romans at length about the purpose of the Law. Check me out.)

    THEREFORE, Christian, you have no right to judge others like Ms. Rice by your own righteousness. So those of you who smugly say, “I am glad I am not like Ms. Rice, or President Bush “ … as you piously pray to God in your temple, or church before all men … and you do not yourself sacrifice a wit to alleviate the suffering of the poor … you are a hypocrite.

    Ms. Rice you could make do with a pair of plastic crocks for $30, but so could ALL of the rest of you. Go and sell your shoes, and give to those who have no shoes.
