Breitbart Confronts The Nutroots
Nutroots: Obama's Not Our Boyfriend Anymore (No, They Said That, Seriously)

And they confront him back.

Little backstory, I have no idea what this is about (and I don't think Breitbart does either), but some Twit on Twitter claimed that there were rumors (you can see how awesome this story is already) that someone who claimed to "work for Breitbart" harassed someone. Like some Muslim woman, saying Muslim men make bad husbands, or something.

Do these guys know who actually works for Breitbart? It's like... six people, total. All of whom are known people, not shadowy figures that no one could identify.

Like: Dana Loesh. Like that.

So who was this guy? Did he he even exist? Did he have "B" carved into his forehead?

In the clip below, Breitbart keeps asking a variant of "Have you even found this person or identified him or do you have a photo of this alleged event?," but of course the Reality-Based Community just keeps ignoring that very irrelevant datum.

"I don't want to talk about whether this even happened! I want to hear you denounce this thing I'm probably making up!"

The confrontation starts at 1:05. Not sure if this is worth posting, but I did want to share some of my experiences of the Right Online convention.*


* This video is the sum of my experiences of the Right Online convention, as I am not there.

"It's like the President's not our boyfriend anymore:" I suppose humor is the typical manner in which deeply embarrassing delusions are confessed.

The panel that drew one of the biggest crowds at Netroots Nation so far was called "What To Do When The President's Just Not That Into You."

"It's like the president's not our boyfriend anymore," Joan McCarter, an editor at the Daily Kos website, said during the discussion.

John Aravosis, another panelist, who blogs about gay-rights issues on AMERICAblog, reminisced about the heady early days of the left's relationship with Obama.

"I honest to God thought I was voting for these guys and that it was going to be the first time in my lifetime that I'm finally in a position of power, where I could be working with the White House on a regular basis, saying, 'OK what could we do this year on gay stuff?' Wouldn't it be cool, oh, 'Don't ask, don't tell,' this is great.' "

...

Jane Hamsher, who blogs at Firedoglake, said with the election approaching, progressives should work the relationship with the White House for what it's worth.

"This is the time when Barack Obama has to care," she said. "This is the time when he needs your vote. So don't give yourself away cheaply. Ask for what you need and what the country needs and this is the time to do it."

At some point, you've got to understand that a Booty Call is not a Marriage Proposal.
