A Big Embarassment for the Country, a Boon for Her!

I only rated this topic low because I feel it was an embarassment to the Government, the USDA, FOX, the NAACP and to Shirley herself in the cowardly way she was told to resign.  Shirley will be the big winner in the end because of the "Rush To Judgement" and the painful apologies that needed to be made.  Shirley became an overnight star and will be able to go onto talk shows, write a book and garner a lot of money.  Also she should be able to get any position she wants and will virtually have an open reign since she will not be able to be "fired" again.

It just goes to show you that the news media is quick to jump on any little tidbit and report anything and those in power should do their homework before listening to the tirades of the political pundits that show once again that most of them are just annoying entertainers and not sources of news.

Michael, I whole heartedly agree. It seems as though your take on her future actions was very prescient. She turned down working for the administration and is making speeches around the country.

Good comments. Same thing happened to a greatly edited video of Tom Cruise a year or so ago. I try not to make judgments until I've seen all the facts. These guys didn't have any.

Seems to happen at work a lot these days.

Yeah, this was way embarrassing for the country, but at least the administration owned up to the mistake and issued a speedy apology, just about as speedy as she was forced to resign. I'm just surprised at the lack of internal review here. Thanks for sharing, Michael! And best of luck to Shirley.
