Breitbart Joins Tea Party at Rally in Philadelphia

The man behind the controversial Sherrod video seen 'round the world surfaces.


Andrew Breitbart, blogger and darling of the conservative movement, surfaced this weekend at a Tea Party rally in Philadelphia. Yes, the man who edited a video that led to the downfall and subsequent uprising of former USDA employee Shirley Sherrod joined a Tea Party rally at Independence Mall denouncing a "media cabal," the NAACP, liberals and everyone else who has "ripped America apart." Wow. We think that zealots editing video to stir up racial animosity while going unchecked by everyone, including the media, is what's ripping America apart. And the Tea Party wonders why so many people don't take "the movement" seriously?
