ACORN, Van Jones, and now Shirley Sherrod all quickly dispatched due to a heavily edited video by race-baiting provocateur Andrew Breitbart or a Glenn Beck tantrum.
Such bravery Mr. President, such an incredibly principled stand.
I mean you didn’t even invite the woman and the white farmers she helped (and love her) over to the White House for a beer. Nope, you just let Vilsack force her out, because you were afraid of frauds like Breitbart and Glenn Beck.
And how’s that working out for you?
She was expendable, to you at least.
You could, of course, promptly overturn the especially spineless Tom Vilsack and hire her back [12th dimensional chess and all] — but that would require a modicum of courage over convenience and I’m not sure Rahm will let you do that. He might make a scene and we know you like to avoid a situation that would cause a scene.
So, on to the next bit of heavily edited race-baiting which will no doubt cause you to immediately panic.
UPDATE: I think Oliver Willis sums this up rather well, and if I can add my own turn of a phrase, it appears the President has indeed literally placed his balls in a blind trust, as Glenn Beck appears to be running the Administration.
