that if Joe were at the helm, Shirley Sherrod would have been called to the WH, apologized to profusely, given back her job if she wanted it, and I know Joe would have publicly stated that his administration overreacted and he's aware that this is yet another time they took the bait from Fox news/Breitbart, and he would rip Fox and Breitbart to shreds. Everything I wish Obama would do, but I doubt if we'll see it.

Joe would do what's right. Period. And make sure it never happens again.

I'm watching the former head of the NAACP on MSNBC now and he makes a good point. That the Spooners are heroes here. If they hadn't been willing to speak out with the truth and what they considered an injustice, this would have a lot less weight.

So they should be invited to the WH, too. :7

PS This NAACP guy is impressive, very level headed, defended Vilsack and the agency since the NAACP had called for her ousting and the agency has a 'zero tolerance' policy against racism, that both the NAACP and administration acted too quickly... Wish I caught his name. As a matter of fact, I've been very impressed by all the NAACP representatives during this - much more impressive than the administration is behaving.

I feel better now.
