The tarring and subsequent firing of Shirley Sherrod is wrong in so many ways — Breitbart and company are utter tools, which isn’t exactly news, but the White House and Tom Vilsack have reacted poorly, to say the least. All I’m gonna say is this. If you’re being a douchebag in the public square, if you’re out there spouting cynical garbage — stuff you know isn’t even true but you say it to play to your racist followers — do try to avoid silly typos. You’re trying to put an intellectual face on simple ignorance and prejudice. But intellectuals are usually good spellers.
The sane reaction to, and best defense against, this whole story is laughter. Turn a “scandal” into a “sandal” and the chuckles just come that much easier.
