Andrew Breitbart loses his shit at CPAC, keeps screaming “behave yourself” at OWS protesters

Now, I can’t be sure about this, but last I checked running around screaming “behave yourself” at a bunch of peaceful protesters and struggling with security is not exactly behaving oneself.

It’s also remarkably stupid. There are these things called “camera phones” and another thing he may have heard of called “the internet.”

Breitbart is many things, but stupid enough to hand the left a viral video like this? It’s a head-scratcher for sure.

Occupy protesters congregated outside of CPAC, hoping to stir up some media attention and irritate conservatives in attendance. Not in a million years did they hope to get so far under Breitbart’s skin.

Do we know if he has a drinking problem? Because I just cannot for the life of me fathom what he was thinking here. Behave yourself? Seriously?

I half expected Bill Maher to show up suddenly and start making wise-cracks about how they should all go get a job, followed by a big make-out scene between the two.

Oh well. We can’t have everything. Even in an age of rapidly-shared-stupidity.
