Guest of Dishonor
Remember how I said that Breitbart wouldn't suffer one bit from the humiliation and castigation heaped on him by the general public following the Shirley Sherrod non-story?
I rest my case.
AP: GOP Invites Breitbart To Fundraiser/7.26.10
It was always pretty much guaranteed that Breitbart's stock with the Wingnut Nation wasn't going to drop, given that he never had any respectability to lose and it doesn't concern itself with things like reality anyway. But the fact that he continues to be embraced by the official Republican power structure is fucking repugnant. For the record, this is my issue with the modern GOP: It's not that I vehemently disagree with the fundamental principles Republicans believe in and therefore rail against them; it's that they make their party nothing more than a joke by willfully aligning themselves with the lowest common denominator and least credible on the right.
By welcoming Breitbart with open arms, they prove that the GOP and the dumb-ass fringe are basically one and the same.
