Will The Real Shirley Sherrod Please Stand Up

Shirley Sherrod has gotten a lot of press lately.  First, there was the Andrew Breitbart coverage of her speech to the NAACP in March that caused a firestorm and her ultimate firing directed from the White House.  When the Breitbart video was watched to the end everyone realized they had jumped to the wrong conclusion and Shirley should be reinstated to her old position in the Agriculture Department. Ms. Sherrod “takes full responsibly for the firing” and decided not to take her old job back when it was offered last week citing mail to read.

At this point in the story, DSMW would like to flesh out Shirley Sherrod; introduce you to her past and her climb in government.
