Well Lefty Blogosphere?

Here’s your chance to show you aren’t hypocritical. Blue Collar Muse has posted the contents of an email that he says was sent while the whole brouhaha from yesterday was occurring–this time from a Tennessee Democrat staffer.

Are we going to see some outrage here?

Some have stepped up already, others are saying in the comments that they will wait until a name is released. I definitely won’t hold my breath waiting for some national attention.

My position remains the same…how stupid do you have to be? Really?

I thought we’d moved past blatant stupidity in this country, especially after yesterday.ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

If you were to follow the line of logic set up by those who let their party affiliation dictate what they are outraged about and what the aren’t, the only logical conclusion would be that all Democrats and Republicans are stupid and/or racist.

Stupidity – Yet Another Reason For Smaller Government

It’s bad enough that a staffer for an elected official is racist enough to distribute something like this by e-mail.

It’s even worse that they are so stupid as to think it wouldn’t surface with their name attached to it.

Now for another round of apologies and resignation. Michael Silence has more.

Update From Christian Grantham:

I spoke with Sherri Goforth minutes ago to confirm she sent this email. She confirmed she had sent it and also said she had received a letter of reprimand from her superiors and said she will stay on the job.

When I asked her if she understood the controversial nature of the photo, Goforth would only say she felt very bad about accidentally sending it to the wrong list.

Huh?

“Sorry Officer…I intended to rob a different bank. My bad. Am I free to go?”

Guess that resignation thing is out the door.
