Top Obama Adminstration officials announced today that after reviewing the entire tape of Shirley Sherrod speaking at an NAACP event in March they may offer the former Georgia Director of Rural Development her job back.
The entire tape shows that not only is Sherrod a racist who attacks white farmers during her speech but that she is likely a Marxist, too. Maybe that’s what got Team Obama to rethink their decision.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said Wednesday that he will reconsider the abrupt firing of Shirley Sherrod, a Georgia-based Agriculture Department official who was the victim of a media frenzy over comments that turned out to have been distorted by video editing.
“I am of course willing and will conduct a thorough review and consider additional facts to ensure to the American people we are providing services in a fair and equitable manner,” Vilsack said in a statement e-mailed by USDA at 2:07 a.m.
A White House official said: “Not sure what the ultimate result will be, but it’s clear that with new information through the full speech, a longer look needed to be taken. The White House contacted the Department last night about the case and agreed, based on new evidence, that it should be reviewed.”
Of course, the media, for the most part, doesn’t bat an eye listening to Sherrod’s views of whitey. Could you even imagine if Sherrod were a white person saying these awful things about blacks?
