I was wrong, and I am sorry. I should have done some more homework before posting.
I’m obviously not the only one who misstepped though (not an excuse, just a statement of fact). The NAACP got “snookered” and they had the video of the whole speech this entire time. Perhaps the USDA and The White House should have responded a little more thoughtfully. Now there is talk that Ms. Sherrod will be offered her job back. Jonah Goldberg makes a great point:
Meanwhile, as a matter of politics, I think this episode demonstrates that this White House is a much more tightly wound outfit than it lets on in public. The rapid-response firing suggests a level of fear over Glenn Beck and Fox that speaks volumes.
Yes it does.
For my part again I apologize to my readers… this is certainly not something I would do intentionally, you deserve better.
Update: Todd Dorman questions whether Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack will survive this disaster, but thinks he probably will.
Of course he will has President Obama ever fired anyone for incompetence?
