    Re: Andrew Breitbart sued by Shirley Sherrod over damaging video

    The suit stems from the notorious video Breitbart posted online last year, showing an out-of-context excerpt from a speech Sherrod gave to the NAACP Freedom Fund in March 2010. The clip suggested she had used her position at the Department of Agriculture to discriminate against white farmers.
    Wow. You sure got a smoking gun there, Hay. Not.

    This gets throw out of court. Mark it.

    which is a pretty big oversight, seeing how it's THE WHITE HOUSE
    OK...I should have specified that those in the video looked stupid were the audience...but also all those that over-reacted to the whole thing

    So I expect to see you supporting Gov. Palin should she decide to sue any one of the dirt bags that has spread lies about her or her family and those that will do so in the future.

    Re: Andrew Breitbart sued by Shirley Sherrod over damaging video

    cnn's political ticker isn't opinion, silly

    it's reportage

    "They asked me to resign, and, in fact, they harassed me as I was driving back to the state office from West Point, Georgia yesterday," Sherrod told CNN. "I had at least three calls telling me the White House wanted me to resign…and the last one asked me to pull over to the side of the road and do it."

    Sherrod said the final call came from Cheryl Cook, an undersecretary at the Department of Agriculture. Sherrod said White House officials wanted her to quit immediately because the controversy was "going to be on Glenn Beck tonight."

    of course, what should one expect from a person who attributes a JAKE TAPPER piece to FAUX NEWS

    LOL!

    Later on still, I didn't feel so bad when things started coming out about Pigford. She wasn't just some sweet little lady done wrong after all. In fact I still think to this day, she was fired so quickly to keep people from digging into Pigford, her former lawsuit against the USDA, and then their hiring of her.
    Barbb...that whole video was shown from day one...including the comments that she had learned and grown from the experience. Thats why it is just so perplexing to me that people saw it in such a negative light. I suspect people watched the first minute or so of the video, got out of it what they were after, and then stopped.

    Isn't Sherrod a Pigford beneficiary? Every skeleton in her family's closet will be exposed as a result of this litigation.

    I say good. I think everyone suing to damage someone they don't like should have their own entire history laid out....first to cast stones and all....
