Recorded this past Saturday at Western CPAC, when Andrew Breitbart of Big Government, Big Hollywood and other sites in the burgeoning Breitbart new media empire held an interview with the bloggers covering the event. Breitbart expands on the remarks he told the Washington Post:
When I saw these videos [by OKeefe and Giles], I couldnt help thinking, this is the Abu Ghraib of the Great Society, said Breitbart, who put the videos on BigGovernment.com. Everybody that is a conservative news junkie thinks that ACORN is the most important institution for us to uncover to the American public.
And speaking of the Post, as Dave Weigel wrote last month in a competing DC newspaper, the Washington Independent:
When one report from The Washington Post called him for a story about OKeefe and Giles, Breitbart compared their tape to the photos of Abu Ghraib prison released in April 2004.
She goes, Wait a second! I worked on the Abu Ghraib stories, said Breitbart. I go, Yeah, that was one aberrant National Guard unit. And now I have five ACORN places that are all complicit in the exact same thing. And there are more! (The reporter, Carol Leonning told TWI that the conversation did not go this way, but that she enjoyed getting Breitbarts take very much.)
Breitbart, angered by the Posts eventual storyit seemed to intimate that OKeefe and Giles had been motivated by ACORNs registration of non-white voters, in a line that was corrected days latermoved right on. BigGovernment had claimed a victory that conservative journalists and activists had been seeking for years, occasionally embarrassing ACORN with a state lawsuit, but drawing no blood. It was a natural next step for Breitbart.

FReep mail me if you want on/off the list.
One of the things that I have noticed in my ten years, you can add a couple of years, of FReepin’ is how incredibly stupid the average commie is.
I have t-shirts for sale with that pic if anyone is interested.
