When will they stop caving in?

Shirley Sherrod, civil rights hero

This time around, even the NAACP "got snookered" by the racist FOX T-baggers. They admittedly conceded too much too fast and denounced Shirley Sherrod, who turns out to be a civil rights hero. This should be a lesson for the Obama administration which seems to jump every time right-wing leaves rustle, throwing good people under bus. USDA officials fired Sherrod in a panic after FOX falsely claimed she was a "black racist." Instead, Obama continues to stand behind the firing, even after FOX was exposed for doctoring a video of Sherrod's speech, a video which when seen in its entirety, reveals her heroism.
"We probably wouldn't have (our farm) today if it hadn't been for her leading us in the right direction," said Eloise Spooner, the wife of farmer Roger Spooner of Iron City, Ga. "I wish she could get her job back because she was good to us, I tell you." (Huffington)
