The Washington Independent’s Dave Wiegel points us to Andrew Breitbart’s first tweets on the breaking story about his boy ward James O’Keefe’s allegedly racist past:
Desperate Salon, Max Blumenthal, Gawker, Village Voice (usual smear artists) lying through teeth over James O’Keefe. Details to come…
Curiously, Breitbart seems to have skipped Phase Two in our predictive model for how he and his cohort would handle this burgeoning scandal, going straight to Phase Three (Sputterings About ‘Hatchet Job’/’Character Assassination’/’Partisan Agenda’).
Breitbart is now tweeting that ‘Weigel DENIES’ that O’Keefe manned a table selling Neo-Nazi claptrap during a White-Man-Negro-Haters Club meet-and-greet held at Georgetown University in 2006.
Odd, because here’s what Weigel says about this:
I was at the 2006 event that leads Blumenthal’s story and can confirm all the details about it.
