Shirley Sherrod is a “bigger man” than Andrew Brietbart was

Breitbart was a Hollywood-hating, mainstream-media-loathing conservative and shot to stardom with two stories in recent years: breaking the story over sexually charged tweets by liberal Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York, a scandal that led to his resignation; and posting a video of Shirley Sherrod, a black employee of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in which she appeared to make racially charged comments, leading to her firing and then a subsequent apology by the Obama administration when it was later revealed her comments were taken out of context.

Sherrod released a statement saying: “My prayers go out to Mr. Breitbart’s family as they cope during this very difficult time. I do not intend to make any further comments.”

For comparison check Breitbart’s tweets on the death of Ted Kennedy.

And I mean nothing sexist by the title.  Unfortunately the style Breitbart used, using doctored video to destroy someone else’s career to make his own amd spewing venom at every opportunity, has contributed greatly to a political emvironment where folks like Ms. Sherrod no longer feel they have a place.

We need to stop tearing oursleves apart, perhaps with Andrew’s passing, we have a better chance of that. 

And maybe then, someday, folks of Ms. Sherrod’s caliber will once again desire to serve the public…and not feel like a sucker for trying.

Andrew Breitbart probably died of heart attack, family says –

Limbaugh : If your wife or daughter are on birth control, they should be required to post videos online having sex so we can watch

I’m not sure if, even if judged during the Jurrassic Age when Brontasaurus  Apatosaurus roamed the earth, Rush Limbaugh wouldn’t be the biggest asshole on the planet.
U.S. News – Limbaugh: Contraception advocate should post online sex videos 

edit: (thanks Daniel) :

Apatosaurus (play/əˌpætɵˈsɔrəs/), also known by the popular but scientifically redundant synonymBrontosaurus, is a genus of sauropoddinosaur that lived from about 154 to 150 million years ago, during the JurassicPeriod (Kimmeridgian and early Tithonian ages).[1] It was one of the largest land animals that ever existed, with an average length of 23 m (75 ft) and a mass of at least 23 metric tons (25 short tons)

I was being scientifically rudundant.  Oh..and I was trying to type “period” on my phone but “age” came out cleaner on the third try.

Now…it does look like being 75 feet long..vs a 6 foot man…and if you’ve ever seen the “goatse” picture (please: DO NOT GOOGLE THIS)…mulitply that picture (standing in for the largest asshole other than Rush Limbaugh)…and we guess Apatosaurus had a 10 foot wide (possibly) asshole.  So…to not be scientifically inaccurate, which I strive to (not) be…Rush Limbaugh is a huuuge asshole.

But there may, just may, have, at some time, been a bigger asshole on the planet.


Every Single Republican in the Senate voted to give your boss the power to deny you healthcare if they think it violates their religion

By a 51-48 vote, the motion by Democrats to table the amendment succeeded, effectively killing it.

The so-called “conscience” amendment, sponsored by Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, was the Senate Republicans’ response to the simmering controversy over a recent Obama administration decision to mandate the kind of health care coverage provided by religious employers.

This was the bill about giving employers the power to enforce the Pope’s rules.

One Democrat voted for it, proving once again both sides are equally bad.
