The “progressive” left is showing its true colors again.
Andrew Breitbart: Death of a Douche — Rolling Stone
So Andrew Breitbart is dead. Here’s what I have to say to that, and I’m sure Breitbart himself would have respected this reaction: Good! Fuck him. I couldn’t be happier that he’s dead.
I say this in the nicest possible way. I actually kind of liked Andrew Breitbart. Not in the sense that I would ever have wanted to hang out with him, or even be caught within a hundred yards of him without a Haz-Mat suit on, but I respected the shamelessness. Breitbart didn’t do anything by halves, and even his most ardent detractors had to admit that he had a highly developed, if not always funny, sense of humor.
For instance, it would be dishonest not to tip a hat to him for that famous scene when he hijacked Anthony Weiner’s own self-immolating “apology” press conference, and held up the entire event by standing at the lectern and congratulating himself at length, before Weiner could let the humiliating healing begin.
For that one, brief, shining moment — still one of the most painful-to-watch YouTube spectacles of all time, right there with Mitt Romney’s priceless attempt at singing “Who Let the Dogs Out?” with a group of black voters in Florida in 2008 — Breitbart could legitimately claim to have the biggest, hairiest balls on earth.
Update: Someone changed Taibbi’s Wikipedia page to more accurately describe him.
(JD) — Rolling Stone staffer Matt Taibbi slammed late conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart today, writingthat he “couldn’t be happier that [Breitbart is] dead.” Then, this afternoon, Taibbi’s Wikipedia page listed him as a “piece of human excrement” and his spouse as “Vaseline and a sock.” His profile snapshot features elephant droppings.
