The Amazing Race-Baiter

From JOE CONASON at Salon:

Former USDA official Shirley Sherrod, a dedicated public servant innocent of the prejudice and misconduct falsely imputed to her, deserves justice. As soon as the White House and Tom Vilsack restore her job, with an appropriate apology, they will begin to remove a stain of cowardice from their administration. But while that may be all the government can do, it isn’t sufficient to close this case.

Real justice, as I suspect Sherrod would agree, also requires due process for Andrew Breitbart, the Internet impresario who framed her on his Big Government website. In these circumstances, that means a fair, thorough and tough examination of the media fraud that launched his operation last year: the ACORN tapes, whose misuse by Breitbart closely parallels his behavior in the Sherrod affair.

Ladies and Gentlemen, We Have a Weiner!

From the Telegraph:

Michael Savage, the American radio presenter, has branded Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, a “witch” after he was included on a list of foreigners banned from Britain.

The “shock jock” threatened to sue Miss Smith, claiming that he had been defamed by the list, which ranked him “in the same league as mass murderers”.

The Home Office’s “least wanted” list of 22 people banned from the country also including extremists, white supremacists and Islamic fanatics.

Savage, whose real name is Michael Weiner, was included for “engaging in unacceptable behaviour” by seeking to provoke violence and foster hatred.
