Poor Andrew Breitbart. A few weeks ago, his protege James O’Keefe is caught red-handed with his buddies attempting to tamper with — oh, let’s be honest, attempting to bug — the telephones of US Senator Mary Landrieu and later admits to willingly attending a white supremacist event.

Between being pretty much laughed out of the place when attempting to bully journalists reporting on the case, and the reception he’s getting after blowing his stack on MSNBC (see video above), and his subsequent Twitter meltdown, it seems like ol’ Fat Boy can’t even buy a break these days.

Still, you’ve got to love Drudge, if only because he carries on in the finest shrieking tabloid tradition — never let the facts get in the way of a good story — along with providing us all with some good cheap laffs.

Now, just to refresh your memories, one more time, here’s the video of a small group of black youth selling little plastic flags at the September 12 Teabaggers’ rally being threatened and harassed, and accused of being “ACORN People” (as if there were something wrong with that in and of itself)…
