Andy Breitbart's "out" on the Sherrod video--or rather, on the edited version he posted--is that he posted all that he had. "Someone" sent him the video, and he ran with it.
Leo Tolstoy: "Happy families are all alike." Hmmm. Anna Karenina must be a boring book.
Mark Twain: "all these characters were trying to talk alike and not succeeding" Guess the author has a tin ear.
James Joyce: "no thats no way for him has he no manners nor no refinement nor no nothing in his nature" Why can't poor Molly Bloom say "yes" for once?
Charles Dickens: "it was the age of foolishness" He must have been looking into the future, not the past.
Scott Fitzgerald: "Most of the big shore places were closed now" not much story there, then.
Most of us understand what a snippet is, and rarely will use it without further examination. Breitbart does not want to understand this.
What's frustrating is that those who viewed his snippet acted as though Breitbart had encapsulated the whole, rather than just presenting a small piece, completely bereft of context or intended meaning.
Have we become this stupid?
