What You Should Know / March 1, 2012

www.huffingtonpost.com -- Conservative media publisher and activist Andrew Breitbart, a firebrand who was embraced by anti-tax, conservative tea partiers and reviled by liberals for his Internet investigations that brought down politicians and chastised mainstream journalism, died Thursday at age 43. Breitbart was behind investigations that led to the resignations of former Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York and former U.S. Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod.

    There goes another hero of the great unwashed… who will “educate” NASCAR fans now? The drudge stands alone, the drudge stands alone. Send some evil thoughts his way, it appears to work.

    I am curious as to what will happen to his band of “pranksters”?

    He was funding snitch/opportunist Brandon Darby (who hangs out with Mathew Vadum and has apparently convinced Vadum that the most un-frightening leftists ever are going to kill him)…and that one Mamma’s boy who lives with his parents in New Jersey.

    I am not a death gloater…unlike Breitbart was with Ted Kennedy but I will love seeing that mini-empire of his fall apart. He should have been grooming an heir but now their will be fighting, since most conservative media stuff functions like Amway but with the stupid, frothing foot-soldiers to be sold as the “product” to the Corporations and institutions that need them.

    *Sniff* One of the Best and Brightest USA! USA! USA! journalists gone. I hope his wife and kids live well on the blood money he extorted for them as he libeled others. Dear Lord Jeebus, I hope there are brown showers—and shirts—in Conservative heaven.

    Hmmm… Looks like everyone’s favorite legal counsel Joel Pollak will need a new gig yet again. Disaster follows this guy everywhere he goes, eh? You should forward his CV to your enemies. It was great to see him breaking the news to all of Breitbart’s followers.

    Oh by the way… Where the fuck is your coverage of the Russian Elections? I could give a fuck about this fat republican bloated blogger dying or your pissing match with him (Although it was funny for a bit).

    We’re about to get Putin 3.0 and you guys keep wasting your time reporting on the Koch brothers and some paranoid illumanati fairy tail that you guys concocted while high on speed.

    ZZZZZ…

    Check out the score board. You guys are winning. Obama is gonna win the next election, everybody hates Romney, and so youll get your wish. Obama will save the USA from evil libertarians you keep warning us about so chill out with the boring US political bullshit and get back to something that is actually interesting like Russia, it’s scary ass politicians, and deceitful but hot women.

    With Love,
    Tyler

    Tyler, with all due respect we’ve already had Republicans accusing other Republicans of vote fraud in this US election cycle. While it’s obvious at this point that world finance has no problem with another Obama presidency, the WWF-style grudge matches on the other side are hilarious and entertaining. As R. Crumb predicted in his Hup comics back in the 80’s, the right is proceeding to eat itself.

    @ 6. Tyler

    Since when is there any Obama enthusiasm here?

  • 9. serf surprise  |  March 2nd, 2012 at 6:40 am

    Holy shit, had to check several sources and my calendar to make sure this is real and it isn’t april the 1st.
    Guess now i understand what all those people were feeling when bin laden died.

    Mike C,

    While I don’t see a lot of Obama enthusiasm, the lack of Obama criticism is a fairly tacit signal that Ames is prObama.

    In the old Exile days Ames would have come out with a racist cartoon portraying Obama as an Uncle Tom for Lloyd Blankfein, Jamie Dimon, and the whole Health Insurance industry by now. Now he just picks on the mentally handicapped, the “tea partiers,” who are just low hanging fruit. Picking on Breitbart and his crew is like doing a lincoln-douglas debate against Gilbert Grape.

    I’m certain Ames has wanted to print something trashing Obama for the corporate shill that Obama actually is. But I’m also guessing that Team Exile hopes to be taken seriously as real journalists, unlike the good old days, which means kissing the liberal left’s ass. Hence all the recent MSNBC appearances. I get it; they have to make a living after all.

    Of course, the fact that I can’t point to any evidence of this, and that Ames and The eXiled were early critics from the Left of Obama on this site, is something I’d rather not bring up here because– well you know why. I’m a fucking pussy and I’m trying to find a way to pretend that the Breitbart piece doesn’t hurt me, and pretend that Breitbart didn’t pick a fight that Breitbart and vicariously all of us who follow Breitbart got a right whoopin from. Don’t want to acknowledge that. So basically, yeah, my point pretty much stands. Point being, not much of a reality guy here. Kinda hurts the head, makes the blood pump in weird scary ways.

    I always enjoy the exile moderator edits.

    For the record, I’ve lived outside the US long enough that I blissfully have no idea who Breitbart was, other than Ames made him and Pollak look like turds.

    And yes, while I recall some pieces critical of Obama from the left on this website, Id like to see more. Picking on the teabaggers, while absolutely amusing, is not very useful. How do I know this? Because I’ve lived outside the US so long I don’t know who anyone is there anymore. So I’m pretty sure I’m right on this.

    The left is gonna keep the executive branch which means if you want change we can believe in, then it’s time to work on creating a left that actually gets something done.

    More importantly, I’d like to see more coverage on Russia. It’s just so much less depressing than fat right wing bloggers dying of coke related heart attacks while rollerblading on suburban Californian sidewalks.
