Good god. If you worked a little overtime on the night shift early this week, you probably missed out on the screwball tragedy involving USDA official Shirley Sherrod. It’s a malicious farce that has less to do with farming Georgia clay and more to do with the stupidity and amorality of media people (whose salaries are a lot more than yours, mine, and Shirley Sherrod’s combined) who continue to let escaped Heaven’s Gate cultist Andrew Breitbart wreak havoc on the lives -- and livelihoods -- of innocent people.
Disgraced via Breitbart’s media manipulation, branded racist and rejected by the NAACP, compelled to resign by the sackless Secretary of Agriculture, and now fully vindicated, Ms. Sherrod most likely will be back at her desk, helping small Georgia farmers, before you clock out by week’s end.
