There were few winners in the Shirley Sherrod case. She was the one, you might remember, who made a speech to an NAACP meeting in March. Those remarks were chopped up, edited to reverse her true feelings on race, and placed on Andrew Breitbart's Web site.
From there, the media went crazy, the Obama Administration asked for her resignation, the true story came out, everyone apologized, and Sherrod is said to be pondering her next move.
Hopefully, Sherrod will get a nice big job out of all of this, and we'll all learn a lesson.
Speaking of lessons, Sherrod actually taught a good one in the original speech. We could all learn it. Peggy Noonan told it well. Read it here.
