Andrew Breitbart emails to say that he didn’t release the Sherrod video because of the Pigford settlement, but was targeting the NAACP for accusing the Tea Party of harboring racist elements:
No. Seriously. On everything I hold dear. This was never about Sherrod. It was CLEARLY telegraphed at NAACP — on Thursday when I, gulp, told Ben Jealous to “go to hell” for spending week attacking racism with Tea Party. That the media and White House have turned this into me versus Sherrod is silly. My consistent angle is defending Tea Party from this predictable line of attack.
I mean, where to even start?
