Take a sniff…note the flies…

Dear Secretary Tom Vilsack, reporters and pundits who just were and keep getting played,

When you see a swarm of flies hovering…

…and then the unmistakable smell of steaming hot fresh shit hits you…

…just as you spy a guilty looking bull over yonder…

…you can trust that the steaming stinking fly attracting pile in the corner is bullshit.

How many motherfucking times do y’all have to get played by some not slick and not even bothering to try to be slick conservative asshole empowered by a quick i-Movies How to Edit a Video tutorial and a lust to be Tea Party minion of the month…Lawd, have mercy…before you pause and consider before buying what they are selling?

And cease acting surprised!

Cease!

If I have to listen to another sorta-reporter talk about the “surprising turn of events” in the Shirley Sherrod resignation story I’m going to call ABC News and go off on whoever answers that damn phone.

Shirley Sherrod’s statements on race at the NAACP conference were uber-edited to make her look bad.

No shit!

Someone on the right got pissed that the NAACP called them out on their racist bullshit…then that same asshole or group of assholes got frustrated that their dear leader fucked up his response by indulging in a public display of racism to claim that he and his aren’t racist…so, said asshole or assholes did what assholes do – lied by doctoring a video to attack to reputation of an innocent woman who just happened to say something that could be doctored to serve their needs.

And then they sent that shit out…and y’all dove at it without a pause or consideration to the source or the timing or basic journalism.

That’s what happened…and that’s what has happened with everything from the ACORN fabrications to the New Black Panther Party non-scandal to the horrible treatment of Ms. Sherrod to [insert next target of the right scheduled to be tossed under The Knee Jerk Express bus].

Y’all got played…and the shocking thing isn’t that you got played, but that you still don’t get that you got played and are probably being played on another manufactured story even as I type.

A bitch urges y’all to try something different, for the love of all that’s easy...take a sniff, note the large amount of flies hovering about and then give the next non-scandal pile of bullshit dressed up as a legitimate information what it deserves...

...your complete lack of attention.

I feel bad for Ms. Sherrod. It is so difficult when those you work with, those who you think are your friends who know you turn on you in this way when the chips seem to be down. This is something that happened in 1986? Really? Even if it went down in the way they say it did that was eons ago. Plus it did not happen how these Tea Party folks wanted it to. Why is the media giving them so much pull and attention. They should be ignored! And the NAACP should be ashamed of itself for not investing what really went down.

If the peace movement had received as much attention as the Tea Party these wars we are in would really be over by now. It is interesting to me what the media chooses to prop up and what they choose to ignore.

I can't say it better than Anon. at 11:47am. Epic fail from the media. I agree with you, Shark-Fu, the media has fallen flat on their faces and yet are still out looking to to be played by another manufactured story. Considering the source of this attack on Ms. Sherrod, Andrew Breitbart, the media has no excuse.
