Eric Boehlert is not pleased. See, ABC News, "Breitbart on Breitbart: Polarizing Blogger Speaks: In Exclusive Interview, Andrew Breitbart Describes Where He's From and What He's After":
In this year of American voter anger and discontent, Andrew Breitbart has found his moment.RTWT.
"I get to be me right now," he said. "That's the best part of this entire thing. This, to me, is the beginning of the beginning."
And what is beginning is, he hopes, the age of Breitbart.
He's everywhere. On Fox News -- a lot. Hobnobbing with Republican leaders in New Orleans. Rallying the Tea Party faithful in appearances across the country. Launching the websites Big Government, Big Journalism and Big Hollywood.
He's also lobbing grenades of controversy -- like his most recent revelation this week of an old speech by Obama Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod, in which she confessed that she once, decades ago, was deeply reluctant to help a white farmer who needed her aid.
"I was struggling with the fact that so many black people had lost their farmland, and here I was faced with helping a white person save their land," Sherrod said in the video.
Sherrod resigned under pressure -- and then it turned out Breitbart had released only a clip of her speech that distorted her real meaning: that she had been wrong and learned from her error.
The controversy continues -- to Breitbart's delight. He says he considers it a victory to have panicked the Obama administration and precipitated a public apology from the White House.
If this is Andrew Breitbart's moment, there are good reasons for it.
More coming up in a bit ...
