I wish I could offer up a better retort to this pathetic sh**bag ( Ace does it better than I ever could) but all I have to offer is this piss off and die.
Via Daily Beat/David Frum:
Of the dead, speak nothing but what is good.
Its an ancient rule and a wise one, but one that does not do justice to the life and career of Andrew Breitbart, dead today aged 43.
It is impossible to speak nothing of a man who traced such a spectacular course through the contemporary media.
But to speak only good of Andrew Breitbart would be to miss the story and indeed to misunderstand the man.
Because President Obama was black, and because Breitbart believed in using every and any weapon at hand, Breitbarts politics did inevitably become racially coded. Breitbarts memory will always be linked to his defamation of Shirley Sherrod and his attempt to make a national scandal out of back payments to black farmers: the story he always called Pigford with self-conscious resonance. [...]
And this is where it becomes difficult to honor the Roman injunction to speak no ill of the dead. Its difficult for me to assess Breitbarts impact upon American media and American politics as anything other than poisonous. When one of the leading media figures of the day achieves his success by his giddy disdain for truth and fairness when one of our leading political figures offers to his admirers a politics inflamed by rage and devoid of ideas how to withhold a profoundly negative judgment on his life and career?
Especially when that career was so representative of his times?
We live in a time of political and media demagoguery unparalleled since the 19th century. Many of our most important public figures have gained their influence and power by inciting and exploiting the ugliest of passions by manipulating fears and prejudices by serving up falsehoods as reported truth. In time these figures will one by one die. What are we to say of this cohort, this group, this generation? That their mothers loved them? That their families are bereaved? That their fans admired them and their employees treated generously by them? Public figures are inescapably judged by their public actions. When those public actions are poisonous, the obituary cannot be pleasant reading.
I know Frum worked in the Bush administration and for the Giuliani campaign but will the MSM please, for the love of God, stop calling him a conservative.
This worthless bastard is a vile POS. I hope he suffers some great loss or calamity in his life so I can be the first to ridicule and mock this Commie Lib. This turd should crawl back into the sewer he came from.
What a douche bag!
He is purposely misrepresenting the Shirley Sherrod incident.
Actually I don’t want to be labeled as anti Frum, so... what an enema bag!
What a jerk!
F david frum. He doesn’t even deserve captial letters and isn’t fit to carry a water pail for the likes of Andrew.
Such class...shame it’s all low.
For those who don't speak liberal, this phrase means "we just make crap up and claim you said it."
For example, if you say "a giraffe has a long neck," that's racially coded for "black people should die."
Douchebags who play this game are the lowest dirt on the earth. That's my racially coded way of saying "douchebags who play this game are the lowest dirt on the earth."
I can hear Breitbart from here. F you!
Frum is a pandering whore to his leftist master overloads
Frum is a pseudocon — a liberal masquerading as a conservative. We can see right through him.
Dead Right, indeed!
See what you did....FRUM!!!
Pardon my French, but what an asshole Frum is. He couldn’t even wait for the body to get cold.
Ace aced it-—Breitbart is smiling from heaven, and Frum should be running for a dark corner in la-la land.
Andrew grew up with the Hollywood libs. One of the reasons he became a conservative was because of the stealth racism on the left.
Shrum. Frum. Whatever...
David Frum is one of the main reasons I dropped my subscriptions to National Review and the Weekly Standard.
The last paragraph in his article could be corrected briefly: Most of the anger and incivility in politics today can be attributed to a staunchly left-wing mainstream media and the administration of a Marxist, race-baiting president and his vitriolically partisan party.
And after this libel on a dead man, this fraud Frum will still try to fly under conservative colors.
No to Romney. No to McCain. No to dishonest `crunchy cons’ like Frum and no to `moderate’ Republicans like Dick Luger.
“Can we count on your support this fall?” GOP
Frum’s mother, Barbara, worked for government television (CBC) here in Canada. He’s always been a statist.
