When a fellow conservative tweeted to Breitbart asking him not to treat Kennedy like they believe some on the left treated the passing of Tony Snow and Ronald Reagan, Breitbart responded “How dare you compare Snow & Reagan to Kennedy! Why do you grant a BULLY special status upon his death? This isnt lib v con.” Despite his claim that his attacks weren’t about “lib v. con,” Breitbart repeatedly justified them in ideological terms.
More than anyone else on the unhinged right, Breitbart strikes me as possibly being a performance artist. I’m comforted by the knowledge that if he snaps and does something terrible, Philip Seymour Hoffman will win an Oscar playing him in the biopic.
