As John already posted here at Crooks and Liars, Andrew Breitbart attacked both Nancy Pelosi and actress Janeane Garofalo at the recent TeaCon Convention held in Illinois which you can read about here -- Andrew Breitbart's Profanity Laced Tirades at TeaCon Convention. MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell took Breitbart down a notch during his Rewrite segment on the Last Word this Monday night and all I can say is, this one's got to leave a mark. Ouch.
O'Donnell rightfully slammed Breitbart as someone who's grown up in the shadow of Hollywood, has always been intensely jealous of anyone else who's managed to make it in show business when he obviously never had a chance to do so himeself and who claims to know something about actress Janeane Garofalo and her career when he obviously doesn't know the first thing about it.
As someone who has worked with Garofalo, O'Donnell set the record straight as to just how many projects she's worked on and how many people have been thrilled to work with her. And as he noted, she was right about our invasion of Iraq but said at the time, if she was wrong, she'd be more than willing to apologize to President Bush or anyone else for that matter and has always been a much bigger and better person than someone like Breitbart with his baseless, sexist attacks on her could ever hope to be.
