Sherrod Just Doesn't Know When To Give Up Her Fifteen Minutes
Attempts by the Left and the mainstream media to cannonize Shirley Sherrod and their efforts to make you believe she is someone she so clearly is not continue unabated. In this video clip above, CNN's Anderson Cooper doesn't miss a step as Sherrod tells him Andrew Breitbart, the person who first publicized a portion of a video clip found on the NAACP's own website of her speaking at one of their events, is a racist who wants to make all black people slaves again. Right after she makes that unchallenged assertion against Breitbart, Cooper then asks her if she is considering a lawsuit against him for defaming her. Yes, she unbelievably says she is considering a defamation lawsuit against him. You also won't be surprised to see the Star's editor, Dennis Ryerson, jump on the bandwagon of bashing conservatives and cannonizing Sherrod in his Sunday musings on the editorial page. Ryerson complains that the conservative blogger and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack failed to check out the complete story before running with it. Perhaps Ryerson should practice what he preaches. Sherrod is so clearly a person who not only has not moved beyond race-baiting ways, but who is also engaged in typical class warfare politics the Democratic Party has come to embrace.
UPDATE: Here's another clip below of Sherrod's speech to the NAACP. I don't know what to make of her comments about the health care debate. At one point she seems to be saying it's a debate over keeping the people with money in power. It then becomes a debate over Republicans fighting a black president. It's then a debate over race. Gee, Shirley, make up your mind. I thought the talking points on both sides of the issue hadn't really changed that much from when Hillary Clinton first pushed a government take-over of health care back during her husband's presidency until I heard Sherrod's comments in her speech.
