    This is mainly about the Sherrod insanity but highlights something that is important.

    `Fury' of the right turns into shameful hoax - Leonard Pitts Jr. - MiamiHerald.com

    This is modern day conservatism in a nutshell. Every day a new outrage, more whining, more hysteria. Never any attempts to accomplish anything...merely daily outrage.

    You can see this with a handful of posters here that post daily on some imagined and overblown horror.

    Is the "Outrage Machine" part of "The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy?"

    Fox News's 50-state Southern strategy
    The network hypes one "scary black people" and "Obama's a racist" story after another.

    CNN's "Reliable Sources" from Sunday is worth watching. American University's Jane Hall has the best quote, in my opinion: The former Fox contributor said Shirley Sherrod was the victim of "virtual world McCarthyism."

    Nothing says ratings like sensationalism.

    So, anyone else miss the days when the biggest outrage they raged over was the alleged 'War on Christmas?'
