To the editor:
I understand from a recent news article that former U.S. Department of Agriculture employee Shirley Sherrod has filed a lawsuit against conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart over a video Breitbart released in July of last year. Sherrod’s lawsuit claims that the clip “damaged her reputation and prevented her from continuing her work.”
I don’t have a problem with this at all, as I feel after the facts came out that Breitbart edited an old video of Sherrod to purposely deceive and whip his conservative followers into a frenzy.
I’m assuming then that Sarah Palin has hundreds if not thousands of possible lawsuits due to the disgusting and hysterical smear campaign launched against her by the far-left after Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head by the lunatic Jared Loughner. Loughner killed 6, including a U.S. district court judge and wounded 14 others.
The far-left immediately pointed the finger mainly at Sarah Palin, her rhetoric and website (showing crosshairs on a map of U.S. districts Republicans needed to win in the 2010 mid-term election in order to recapture the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives) for causing this deranged man to commit this horrible act. Facts? They didn’t really matter when it came to Palin as far as the far-left was concerned.
