What is good for the goose isn’t good for the gander.  Helena Andrews at the Washington Post has this reckless column about Andrew Breitbart and Shirley Sherrod.

In it, Andrews falsely states that Breitbart “published a doctored video” of Sherrod’s racist confession at an NAACP convention.  In fact, Breitbart published all that had been given to him, including the portion of the video where Sherrod is redeemed by confessing that she should not have been making decisions on the basis of race. Breitbart also published the portion where Sherrod admits making adverse decisions toward a white farmer because of his race.

No matter to Andrews. Instead she presents a narrative as if Breitbart cut and pasted and deleted words such as “not” from a video. Claiming the video is “doctored” is patently false. But Breitbart isn’t around to sue Andrews and the Washington Post.  The defamation lawsuits only go one way, with Sherrod as a plaintiff trying to enrich herself at the expense of Andrew Breitbart’s widow and children.

All this leftist liberal inspired chaos is designed to shift people's attention away from how completely incompetent and corrupt this administration is. It's all they have left, they have nothing positive to show for the past five years of their lies and buffoonery.

She knew exactly what the truth was but chose not to use it. The Demorats have sunk to a level that I did not think possible for people who live and work with us on a daily basis. Their technique is to throw out a big lie and then watch as the truth tries to catch up with it. They know that it never does and that the first lie always is the lingering memory for the uninformed.

Just the Left, doing what they do best. Or the only thing they know how to do. Really -- what else do they know how to do?

Sick. I never knew Andrew Breitbart personally but he was a real American hero who was unafraid to call BS on dishonest hypocrisy. You knew whenever he appeared publicly that you were going to get the straight story from his perspective. The MSM is full of such BS anymore. Journalism is just another path to positions within the government. America lost a lot in losing him. Now the MSM is nothing more than pure propaganda.

Yet another example of Affirmative Action: when are any of you going to realize that you can't reason someone out of something they didn't reason themselves into?

In this case, you might as well try to explain the precession of the equinox to a lobster.

These are the same people who tell us with straight faces that Abe Lincoln was a Democrat and the KKK were Republicans. Then they "explain" that vulgar FACTS don't matter; the magical "TRUTH" of The Narrative does.

G-d, I miss Andrew Breitbart - and I hate the eneMedia.
