Shirley Sherrod - UPDATE

I just heard on the radio that Sherrod is going to sue Andrew Breitbart. For what? Termination? That was her boss's fault. Possibly slander, but in the same video Shirley engaged in slander of her own, calling Republicans and Tea Partiers racist.

I think Andrew should have waited for the full tape, don't misunderstand me. I was online when he first released it. I remember him being shocked when she got fired. He said from the very beginning that it wasn't about her. But the media has their victim now.

Shirley once sued the government and took home a nice fat paycheck.

Oh, brother. Lady, you got fired. Sorry about that, but Breitbart did not put out that video because he's racist. He didn't do it because he hates that you're black, okay? Good grief, I am so sick of this garbage.

He put it out because the Tea Parties have been smeared as racists for the past two years, culminating in the NAACP condemnation. Someone then sent Breitbart that clip, which he posted. At the time of posting, he said that it was not the full clip, that he was trying to get the full clip, and it wasn't about you.

Again, he should have waited to ensure accuracy and context. He'll sure do it in the future. But he wasn't targeting you. It was about the NAACP, and, quite frankly, he said it was more about the reaction of those listening to your story, laughing along as you told it, not knowing that you were building up to a turning point.

And now that you've been smeared as a racist, maybe you'll think twice before you accuse entire parties and groups of people of it again yourself.

Ugh. Enough of this. Whatever sympathy I had for Shirley Sherrod is evaporating fast.
