They come to praise Breitbart, not bury him
With the right wing wurlizter blasting the the internets with feeble, yet vicious attacks on Shirley Sherrod I suppose it should come as no surprise that the Republicans are embracing the race-baiter.
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele has a party fundraising event coming up in August that is scheduled to feature a very special guest: Conservative media activist Andrew Breitbart, according to a copy of the invitation exclusively obtained by TPM.Thinking the predictions for a GOP sweep in November are highly exaggerrated. Looking likely to me they're on track to overplay the race baiting before the elections.
The fundraising event, billed as an "Election Countdown," will take place from August 12-14 in Beverly Hills, California, and will also feature other politicians such as California Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, and Nevada Republican gubernatorial nominee Brian Sandoval. Steele and Breitbart are scheduled to co-headline a welcome reception on the first evening, August 12.
