Breitbart's Tantrum

It looks like MSNBC felt enough pressure from some of us to bring Andrew Breitbart on Martin Bashir's show today for a second go-round at what some thought would be a more serious interview.

To MSNBC: Just get rid of the racists. Pat Buchanan needs to go and Breitbart should not be allowed to appear on anyone's show to pimp a book which is an intellectually dishonest screed about how devoted Breitbart is to the truth. This is not free speech suppression. It's simply NOT NEWS.

Yes, Martin Bashir did his best to wade through the contradictions and nonsense, but anyone who has ever seen Andrew Breitbart in action knows he's a verbal bully who can't shut up long enough to give a straight answer. All he does is filibuster and distract, because he doesn't really care about the truth. This is all about him. Every time he gets a platform to go on about himself, he uses it.

Even in this meltdown at the end of the interview where he just starts ranting about Media Matters talking points and the like, it's classic Breitbart. Remember, this is the guy who "just likes doing things that are wrong."

You know what? All three of my kids threw tantrums when they were two years old too. We didn't put them on national television. We sent them to their room. Take a lesson, MSNBC.
