Glenn Beck Defends Shirley Sherrod: It’s Possible ‘This Woman Deserves Her Job Back’
Shirley Sherrod may have found an unlikely ally: Glenn Beck.
Beck defended the USDA appointee, who resigned after Big Government posted a controversial video clip of a speech she gave to the NAACP earlier this year. In the clip, she described an incident when she debated how much to help a white farmer in need of assistance, though she has said that her remarks were taken out of context.
Beck said today that it’s possible she “deserves her job back.”
This is a case of stopped clocks and all that— Beck might be right about Sherrod, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a total loon the rest of the time. Still, it’s interesting to watch him defend her as all this unfolds.
Is this just a case of CYA, since I believe he played the Breitbart version of the tape on his radio show, or is he actually sincere?
