Oh … how much longer must we put up with these, you know, racists? How much longer will they exert their influence over, not just crazy right wingers, but … be still my heart … the President. Here’s a quick recap of the lefty wizzards of smart (hat tip Rush Limbaugh) last night on cable. The premise: the President is not to blame for firing Shirley Sherrod … it’s Fox News, righty blogs, righty talkers, yada yada, etc. etc. who forced his ever gentle, always accommodating hand that wields the power.
For your viewing pleasure, I think. A lineup of Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Cynthia Tucker (Atlanta Journal), someone named Errol Lewis (NY Daily News), and Wayne Henderson. Nothing like throwing around charges that someone is racist without … ummm … proof?
Got that? The right snookered the President and the media. Matthews is right … it is crap. Here’s the exit question, as AP would say at Hot Air. Who would have though Andy Breitbart and Fox News had this much power over the President?
