Andrew Breitbart had a tape, EE Eye EE Eye Oh…

Andrew Breitbart

…and on that tape he had some crap,  EE Eye EE Eye Oh…

With  Obama here, and students there

Here a speech, there a speech

everywhere a speech speech…

Andrew Breitbart had a tape,  EE Eye EE Eye Oh…

According to the Telegraph in the UK:

(A) video, pitted as Mr Obama’s coup de grace and the end of his 2012 re-election bid, promised to expose the president as a “racist radical” who had plotted to seize control of the White House with other “totalitarian freaks” for more than 20 years.

In reality the tape showed a college student campaigning for racial diversity at Harvard law School – not quite the fiery revelations right wing blogger Andrew Breitbart had pledged prior to his death.

Sean Hannity, though, tried to push the tape on Fox News as some kind of real revelation that would end Obama’s campaign. But his efforts were more or less silly with a lot of respondents outside of the Fox/Tea Party crowd having greater respect for the President and his support of a dedicated professor while he was Editor of the Harvard Law Review (I don’t think Hannity ever had that kind of status).

As to Breitbart, he died before he could create another phony attack on good people. Perhaps he is watching all this from Hell. 🙂


It’s hard to know what to say… Andrew Breitbart, enemy of most of us who support Obama and the Rational Left, is dead at 43.

From the LA Times:

The conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart, the polarizing website publisher who once helped edit the Drudge Report and found his way to tea-party stardom in recent years and exposed the story of the sexually explicit tweets of Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), suddenly collapsed near his Westwood home early Thursday morning and died. He was 43.

Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center suspected his death was due to natural causes, Breitbart’s father-in-law, actor Orson Bean, told The Times.

“He was walking near the house somewhere…. He was taken by paramedics to UCLA and they couldn’t revive him,” said Bean, who spoke with his daughter, Susannah Bean Breitbart, about what happened.

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office confirmed it will investigate the case, given how young Breitbart was.

Breitbart was a Hollywood-hating, mainstream-media-loathing conservative, and shot to stardom with two stories in recent years: breaking the story over the sexually charged tweets by Weiner, a scandal that led to his resignation; and posting a video of Shirley Sherrod, a black employee of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in which she appeared to make racially charged comments, leading to her firing and then a subsequent apology by the Obama administration when it was later revealed her comments were taken out of context.

This will certainly ease an element of the election situation this year.

It puts the thought in my head that maybe there IS a God. Or maybe Rush Limbaugh could go out and walk around his house, too.

Breitbart was no respecter of the maxim that one shouldn’t speak ill of the dead: After the death of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy in 2009, he spewed venom all over the liberal lion’s grave via Twitter, calling him a “special pile of human excrement,” a “villain” and other things we can’t reprint on a family website. So I don’t have any qualms about remembering Breitbart, who died suddenly Thursday at 43, as a closed-minded bully and blowhard who seemed to think he could win debates by shouting louder than his opponent rather than having a better argument, a casual liar who shamelessly destroyed reputations and an unfortunate new species of Internet parasite.

I guess  agree. I just don’t feel bad.

A Quote for the Afternoon (and I am deeply disappointed)

I regret to say that Anthony Weiner, a man I have defended to those I discuss politics with… and on this blog, admitted today that he had sent the photo of himself in his underwear via twitter to a woman he didn’t know, and that, furthermore he had lied about it. Apparently he had done this with aroud half a dozen women over the last three years.

This quote from his press conference this afternoon:

“I have made terrible mistakes that have hurt the people I care about the most and I’m deeply sorry. I have not been honest with myself, my family, my constituents, my friends and supporters and the media.”

Weiner, who just about came to tears apologizing to his wife and family in the press conference, also stated that he would not resign.

And a funny quote for the evening, care of All Hat, No Cattle:

Re: The Anthony Weiner situation:

 “I see only two options here: Either Anthony Weiner has too many photos of his junk to keep track of, or ‘Certitiude’ is his nickname for his penis.”

Stephen Colbert

(btw… I don’t think it was Weiner who sent this photo to the student. I’d set my sights on Breitbart.)

Anti-Mosque Muckers drawing International Racists to their fold…

Icky, icky, icky this Pam Geller is a sicky.
clipped from
Pamela Geller, the woman who arguably touched off the weeks-long fight over the Cordoba House, is organizing a September 11 protest to stop the project, and she’s invited some of America’s most high-profile conservatives to attend. But she’s also enlisting the help of one of the most controversial anti-Muslim politicians in Europe.
Joining Geller and Andrew Breitbart, among others, will be Dutch politician Geert Wilders, the controversial anti-Muslim leader of the right wing Freedom Party in the Netherlands.
Wilders has opposed Islam and mosque-building in Holland. In 2008 he told The Guardian, “I have a problem with Islamic tradition, culture, ideology. Not with Muslim people.” His extreme views got him temporarily banned from the United Kingdom
The anti-Cordoba movement has thus far been an American effort, but Geller, a long-time admirer of Wilders, has made it international.

A Quote for the Day – Howard Dean after Appearing on Chris Wallace…

“I don’t believe all or even most of the Republican party voters are racist, but going at least as far back as Lee Atwater, the Willie Horton ads, and the attacks on John McCain in the South Carolina primaries in both 2000 and 2008, the immigration debate in 2006, there is a persistent willingness in the Republican party to use race baiting for electoral advantage. The fact is, this is racist behavior.”

– Gov. Howard Dean, in the Huffington Post

… and the Shirley Sherrod attack by Breitbart and Fox News (which Chris Wallace now claims didn’t really happen… but, hey, we were there!) is only the most recent occurance.

Cartoon(s) of the Week — Race Raises Its Head

Tom Toles in the Washington Post:

The Shirley Sherrod incident brought up the Race issue this past week and it wouldn’t go away… for this we thank the Right (and their amazing Murdoch-iated Media at Fox News) for catching us AGAIN!

Pat Oliphant, NYT Syndicate:

And , of course, these situations bring out the REAL PROFESSIONALS…

– and –

Kevin Siers in the Charlotte Observer:

And it is easy fool all of the people some of the time… hell, you can probably do it ALL of the time.

I was never more disappointed as when I discovered that Andrew Breitbart was Orson Bean’s Son In Law!
