    Sokay - I willingly kill my brain cells by watching MSNBC but in low doses. It's my substitution for harmful drugs. The only side effect is the giggles and sometimes nausea.

    'Snookered'
    David Kurtz | July 20, 2010, 6:42PMAs I've said all day, I want to see the unedited video of Shirley Sherrod before drawing a final conclusion. But the NAACP has now reviewed the unedited tape (as I understand it, they've actually listened to the audio) and based on its review released a statement saying it was "snookered by Fox News and Tea Party Activist Andrew Breitbart into believing she had harmed white farmers because of racial bias."

    NAACP President Ben Jealous, no doubt swallowing hard, admits, "Next time we are confronted by a racial controversy broken by Fox News or their allies in the Tea Party like Mr. Breitbart, we will consider the source and be more deliberate in responding."

    The NAACP may release the unedited video as early as this evening.

    Why on earth would you fire someone without all the facts? They HAD the tape. Why would they IMMEDIATELY fire her without even viewing the entire video? Sounds fishy.

    Keep up the good work comrade... Karl Marx would be proud if he were alive today.
    Hmmm. Who produced the highly edited video. Andrew Breitbart. Joseph Goebbels, the minister of propaganda, would be proud if he were alive today.

    The entire video hasn't been released by the NAACP. Yet.......the White House forced her to resign. Odd.

    Breitbart denies editing the tape, and says he received it in its current briefer form.

    2 points...

    1-even in that 00:01:20 worth of clip there is redemption
    2-you admittedly pass judgement based on THAT???

    I guess I could throw in the third point...the farmers wife who has come to her defense or the 4th...that comparing the judgement of and condemnation of this woman to the NAACPs incorrect declaration of 'the Tea Party' doesnt exactly cast you in the most positive of lights. but really...whats the use...
