Cartoon: Pat Bagley
The lack of ethics and perversions of far right demagogues in the media (Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, et al) have no limits, making them astounding aberrations in the eyes of reasonable, educated human beings. That these people continue to spew their lies, vitriol and hate so successfully among a gullible public is disgusting and shameful to our country.
Pseudo-journalists, right wing operatives, who either fail at doing their research, or spread distorted and prejudicial character assassination, despite research findings, like Andrew Breitbart, are beneath contempt.
But political appointees, regardless of party affiliation, can be spineless and unprincipled in the face of loud rhetoric from the fringe. The top administrators at the Obama Ag department have demonstrated that they are run of the mill political appointees lacking any backbone or strength of character, and have utterly failed Ms. Sherrod.
