On hearing that Andrew Breitbart has passed.
[UPDATE] Thinking about the sad news some more – and seeing not only Jeff’s post, but Erick’s and Brad’s; for that matter, the outpouring of sentiment across the right-blogosphere (and a certain tentative undercurrent of hate across the left-) – I wondered what Andrew would say to comfort the folks that know and miss him, if only he still could. Then I realized that I | Read More »
BREAKING: Anthony Weiner to resign House seat.
Unconfirmed as of yet, but it’s honestly the only option that the man has at this point, especially since his own party was publicly throwing him under the bus. Presumably somebody offered him a sufficiently lucrative golden parachute. Moving along, let us first get the obligatory parting shot out of the way… …as you might have guessed from the picture and the subtitle, there is | Read More »
Hey, Jeff Toobin! About that Andrew Breitbart #Weinergate thing.
You remember how you went on CNN to attack Andrew about the ludicrous, oh so ludicrous suggestion that Anthony Weiner might have been having private digital conversations with teenagers? You know, this attack: “This is the silliest little thing.” Well, it’s also the funniest thing! The Delaware police are now looking into Anthony Weiner’s… private digital conversations with a teenager! Which Weiner is totally admitting | Read More »
#weinergate … well, now. Weiner’s naked torso.
[FURTHER UPDATE] If you missed that, then you have missed the most epic Wait, What? in recent political history. [UPDATE]: Here’s the live feed for the press conference… which has been apparently taken over by Andrew Breitbart. Wait, what? Did Weiner run? This would be where the deep hurting starts: Big Journalism released another photo from now-officially-beleaguered! Rep. Anthony Weiner to a second, as-yet-unnamed* woman. | Read More »
The Righteous Indignation Book party.
Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World! is, of course, Andrew Breitbart’s latest book; and I had the opportunity to schmooze meet up with folks from The Daily Caller / Americans for Tax Reform at a book party that they threw for Andrew yesterday. I finished the book itself today: it’s very accessible, and while it told me a lot of stuff that | Read More »
QotD, Maureen Dowd edition.
Yes, Maureen Dowd. We may not have a “nation of cowards” on race, as Attorney General Eric Holder contended, but we may have a West Wing of cowards on race. Although I’m somewhere between Holder and Dowd on this one: we have a national political party of cowards on race, and it’s the Democratic one. As we’ve just had Andrew Breitbart graphically, if perhaps not | Read More »
Breitbart: 100K for the Journolist!
I believe that it was Tom Clancy who noted that (back in the Cold War era, at least) the CIA was always prepared to spend real money when purchasing treason. Apparently, would-be agents simply assumed that the decadent capitalist Western spy agency would offer money as a matter of course, and the CIA didn’t argue with them; it wasn’t as if Communist subjects ever had | Read More »
More video of the Carson/Lewis affair.
What I tell you three times is true: get a camera. Get a camera. GET A CAMERA: For those without video, the above (courtesy of Andrew Breitbart) shows an alternate view of Rep. Andre Carson and Rep. John Lewis’ infamous walk out of the Cannon Building, on the day that the two Congressmen claimed to have been taunted with racial slurs. As Andrew put it:
Breitbart to Eric Holder: Investigate ACORN, or else.
And threats don’t get more direct than this: either AG Holder starts investigating ACORN, or Breitbart dumps what he still has on the scene in time to make a difference in the 2010 elections. And this message is to Attorney General Holder: I want you to know that we have more tapes, it’s not just ACORN, and we’re going to hold out until the next | Read More »
A copy of the ACORN/Breitbart/O’Keefe/Giles suit…
…may be found here: ACORN v OKeefe – Background here (via Hot Air). They’re trying for the ‘audio recording without permission’ angle – however: I am not a lawyer, but I have been told by at least three that Section 23 can be used to justify discovery. As a direct and proximate result of the actions of defendants, ACORN has suffered injury to its reputation. | Read More »
Are you a Democratic legislator in a Republican-leaning seat?
Because if you are, here is an advisory: as of this moment, if the Right catches you or your staff within 100 yards of an ACORN office or worker we will cheerfully crucify you with that organization. And by ‘crucify’ I mean ‘take the metaphorical and rhetorical equivalent of long iron nails and permanently attach you to ACORN with them.” As the above link to | Read More »
*How* much trouble is ACORN in right now?
Let me put it this way: after seeing the first part of the San Bernardino ACORN video – the one where the ACORN stooge is bragging about her husband’s death, the former running of her own brothel, and the way that she knows Senator Barbara Boxer – GayPatriot called up Boxer’s office*. He’s reporting that the Senator’s staff is pointing out in their responses that | Read More »
Big Government, ACORN, and tax advice for underaged brothels.
So, Andrew Breitbart’s new website Big Government wanted to start off with a splash – and they’ve certainly done so, thanks to the post Chaos to Glory. In it, James O’Keefe with an associate to ACORN’s Baltimore office, with the story that the associate is a prostitute who needs to set up her income – and the income of a baker’s dozen of underage El | Read More »
We call these types of trolls ‘mobys’ at RedState.
Andrew Breitbart (H/T RS McCain) has an article up about the unfortunately common habit of elements of the Online Left to, well, lie: Much of Mr. Obama’s vaunted online strategy involved utilizing “Internet trolls” to invade enemy lines under false names and trying to derail discussion. In the real world, that’s called “vandalism.” But in a political movement that embraces “graffiti” as avant-garde art , | Read More »
Breitbart’s talk on Hollywood and the GOP from Wednesday.
As I mentioned earlier, I went to the shindig that Americans for Limited Government & NetRight Nation put together that featured Andrew Breitbart (of Breitbart & Big Hollywood). The below features the question that I asked. You can see the first two parts over at The Other McCain. Watch the whole thing: Andrew’s pretty fun in person, and he has a perspective on this sort | Read More »
