Oops, she wasn't a witch after all

WASHINGTON – The White House did a sudden about-face Wednesday and begged for forgiveness from the black Agriculture Department employee whose ouster ignited an embarrassing political firestorm over race. She was offered a "unique opportunity" for a new job and said she was thinking it over.

With lightning speed, the controversy moved from Monday's forced resignation of a minor U.S. Ag official in Georgia to Tuesday's urgent discussions at the White House amid a rising public outcry and then to Wednesday's repeated apologies and pleas for Shirley Sherrod to come back.

Sherrod said she resigned under White House pressure after the airing of a video of racial remarks she made at an NAACP gathering. But Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said repeatedly on Wednesday that the decision had been his alone. More here:

Well, let me say the first thing that jumps to mind.  They forgave her because she's black. (Not really, but that's what you'd hear if she were white.)

The real reason they forgave her is because a bunch of black organizations came to her aid and threatened to sue the ever-loving-crap out of the government if they didn't give her her job back.  And if it were only the money they STILL wouldn't care.  But that's not it ... they knew they would be subpoenaed to testify and would have to admit to their TOTAL INCOMPETENCE ... THAT, is what stopped this train.  Otherwise, Ms Sherrod would have been doomed.

It's funny, isn't it?  This was so clear that even an idiot like me knew it was bogus just from reading the news reports.  AND, I knew it before the great rulers and geniuses in the government.  It's not their fault though ladies and gentlemen.  They are the biggest bunch of INCOMPETENT BOOBS boobs on the face of the earth.  They are  easily manipulated by the media and political correctness.

These people don't have any principles.  They aren't interested in finding facts.  They are only interested in jumping though politically correct hoops and hoping you won't point at them and holler "witch." - that's it.  They don't care how their behavior affects other people, they only care about themselves and their buddies .  They tax you to provide the funds they use make up more bureaucracies  (or fund projects/contracts) and then give the jobs/contracts to their buddies.  Then their buddies use that money to contribute to the politician's campaign fund and the circle continues.

This is the problem with individual opinion by consensus. The "snookered" probably thought they had the tacit go-ahead to start their witch hunt with the full faith and support of the usual witch hunters. That's probably why they never bothered doing any individual fact-checking.

They do this all the time and nothing ever goes wrong. They probably got brave this time and decided to go after a black woman instead of the usual conservative white male.

These idiots remind me of nothing more than a flock of domesticated ducks. There's really no "leader" just a group of dumb animals seeming to head around in a similar direction while accomplishing nothing at all. Every so often, one of them will get the idea that they're the leader and go off in another direction.

Eventually, they'll check over their shoulder to see who's with them and realize they're on their own and go scurrying back to the masses and hope that nobody noticed.
