ladeez and gennilmen!
prepare yourselves for a roman spectacle the likes you've never seen since "predators vs. aliens"!
brought to you by dave weigel of the washington independent, reporting live from teabag ground zero, it's the battle of the century, pitting pounds of pale and flabby libertarian arrogance against the coiled and oiled tentacles of social conservative sanctimony!
in one corner, steamed and fuming at seeing his movement kidnapped by lunatics (too late, methinks), it's huffington post wannabee andrew breitbart, still showing the recent bruising he's taken running away from former protegé and overzealous pimp-impersonating baby-watergate-plumber james o'keefe.
in the opposite corner, buying fame with birther billboards nationwide but still trying to find out where to buy good ol' fashioned american respect, it's worldnetdaily owner joseph farah, making a rare public splash as a barker a cirque de teabagger.
when these two collide over birtherism, it's a wonder the place isn't annihilated in a matter-antimatter cataclysm:
farah: is a winning issue! breitbart: it’s not a winning issue. farah: it is! it becomes even more of a winning issue when the press abrogates its responsibility — breitbart: you don’t recognize it as a fundamentally controversial issue that forces a unified group of people to have to break into different parts? it is a schism of the highest order. farah: nothing exposes the president’s — breitbart: then prove it! farah: the press isn’t asking the question — breitbart: prove it! farah: prove what? breitbart: prove your case. farah: [irritated] i should prove, what, a birth certificate that may or may not exist? that’s ridiculous. you don’t even understand the fundamental tenets of what journalism is about, andrew. it’s not about proving things. it’s about asking questions and seeking truth. breitbart: [tense] right. farah: i know you’re not a journalist, so that’s fine. but don’t diminish people who’ve been doing this for 35 years. breitbart: so you’re going to go on record saying that i’m not a journalist? farah: are you? i’ve never heard you claim to be. are you? breitbart: i’ll let it be answered by you. farah: well, i knew drudge didn’t consider himself a journalist, so i assumed that you were. ... i don’t know, i’m not trying to insult you. breitbart: you did.
this town's just not big enough, folks.
