    WASHINGTON (AP) -- NAACP leaders are calling on the Obama administration to reconsider its ousting of a black Agriculture Department worker who was pushed out of her job over racially tinged remarks, reversing their previous criticism of the employee.

    NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous said in a statement that the group was "snookered" into believing that USDA employee Shirley Sherrod expressed racist sentiments at a local NAACP meeting in Georgia earlier this year. Jealous said conservative activist Andrew Breitbart, whose website posted video of Sherrod's remarks, deceived millions of people by releasing only partial clips. He said the full video makes clear that Sherrod was telling a story of racial unity.

    President Obama should fire Vilsack who claims she was fired because someone might claim she is a racist. Fucktard.

    Well, the NAACP is now one up on Ravi, who will NEVER admit to being wrong about anything. Even if 38 lies by her in a 5 page thread are proven.

    So they claim they went off half-cocked?? That should bolster their credibility.

    It does with me. I actually normally cannot stand the NAACP.

    They did the right thing.

    Yep. Right on cue.

    This incident is classic example of why the Leftwing Power Structure loathes the alternate media (especially the blogosphere). Breitbart posted video clips of the woman saying what she said. The NAACP, the MSM, and the Obama Administration can all circle the wagons and blame Breitbart until their vocal chords bleed - but they can't change the fact that rational people across the country understand the racist/statist agenda being promoted by Progressives.

    What's funnier then the NAACP being snookered, is that the White House was mega-snookered, cause their representative called Sherrod, according to her, 3x on her way home from work to resign; because this White House is intimidated by Fox news.
    What a hoot and another 'total lameness badge' gets pinned on this administration's chest.
    Andrew Breitbart, you prankster you.
    Oh well, what goes down, comes round.
