This is what you get for lying to the world and attempting to destroy the life of an innocent hard working woman who has dedicated her life to helping poor people – an invite to high level GOP fundraisers. Andrew Breitbart has now been embraced by the GOP, a sickening development in the long, downward spiral of what used to be a conservative Party but is now a club for corporate lobbyists and neo fascists.
My friend Chez sums it up perfectly:
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.
