With a tip of the old Tam o' Shanter to Tbogg and his post, Andrew Breitbart Is Dead. Andrew Breitb-Art Is Not.

   Breitbart “Fight” Print (36×48″ Limited Edition Canvas)
    Product Description

    36″ x 48″ giclee on canvas, stretched and glazed (ONLY 43 numbered and artist autographed editions will be made available; when they’re gone, they’re gone!)

    ARTIST: David Bugnon

    When it came to the cause of truth, Andrew Breitbart was one in a million: a provocateur par excellence. America witnessed his combatant spirit up close and personal when he and Hannah Giles blew the cover off of ACORN.

    Andrew would happily fight people, organizations and governments with tooth, fang and claw if he sensed any anti-American BS. David Bugnon’s piece captures Breitbart’s essence as a contrarian: confident and geared-up.

    Make room on your wall for a limited edition reproduction of Bugnon’s painting. We should all emulate the moxie Andrew perfected for that which is just and true. Hang your print by the front door so as you depart your house and dive into the cultural trenches you will be ever mindful, thanks to Andrew’s example, that there are things worth scrapping for—and America’s founding documents are definitely one of them.

…and now, the punchline:

    Price:
    $3,999.95

Tbogg has a contest Ye Olde Breitbarte Halfe-Man Photoshoppe Jousting Faire Thinge going on too.
...now put your mad photoshop skillz to the test and provide us (me) with a new graphic for all Breitbart Is Still Really Really Dead-Ass Dead posts henceforth and forthwith for the fortnight plus infinity.

Thanks to a comment over there, I learned that "Giclee" is

...a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on ink-jet printers. The name originally applied to fine art prints created on IRIS printers in a process invented in the late 1980s but has since come to mean any high quality ink-jet print and is often used by artists, galleries, and print shops to denote such prints.
...

To make the word descriptive of ink-jet technologies he based it on the French language word "le gicleur" meaning "nozzle", or more specifically "gicler" meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray".

You probably hit you monitor with a " squirt, spurt, or spray" of coffee when you opened this and saw the picture.

About that $3,995 price tag. You can DYI for only about $400. Check the price list at this link.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
