Shirley Sherrod shenanigans
Re: July 26 commentary “Chewing up the innocent.”
I would like to remind Leonard Pitts Jr. and others that “the conservative outrage machine (that) tried to chew up Shirley Sherrod” was joined by this administration and the NAACP.
I am a proud Democrat, but this administration and the NAACP’s quick rush to judgment is no different from one who forwards an inflammatory e-mail without checking its veracity. There’s enough blame to go around. Suzann Madeley
Aren’t all of the pundits blaming Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, the NAACP and the Obama administration for their outrageous behavior by not asking Sherrod for her side of the story just blaming the victims? Shouldn’t the outrage be against Andrew Breitbart and the people who deliberately seek and distort facts in order to create hate, havoc, division and chaos? Marilee Phillips
