An Old Schtick

Recently, we received an odd comment to a February 22 post on a rally supporting Wisconsin unions:

I met some wonderful Socialists and Communists at this rally…so good that Teachers can stand shoulder to shoulder with our brothers and sisters in social justice! Cant wait for the next one!

It is unusual to receive comments more than a month after a post was published, and the message was a bit bizarre, so we googled the email of the person who left it. It turns out that bona1173@yahoo.com was one of the emails used in the smear of Shirley Sherrod, the civil rights movement veteran and former USDA official who had her speech to the NAACP edited to misrepresent her as a racist.

Whatever your real name is, Bona1173, your schtick is really old.
