Politico: Sarah Palin pens farewell to Andrew Breitbart
-By MJ Lee
March 16, 2012- Weeks after the sudden death of conservative journalist Andrew Breitbart, Sarah Palin has penned an article encouraging his supporters to continue living out the late publisher’s mission — “the belated vetting of Barack Obama.”
“With the death of Breitbart, the conservative movement didn’t just lose a General — we lost an entire Special Forces Division,” Palin wrote in a piece published on Big Government late Thursday. “But he didn’t leave us without the tools and the knowledge we need to fight. This website — Breitbart 2.0 — is the culmination of his study of the technology and aesthetics of new media.”
Under the guidance of Steve Bannon, Larry Solov and Joel Pollak, Breitbart’s most urgent goal can continue to live, the former Alaska governor said.
“Breitbart’s most immediate mission was the belated vetting of Barack Obama. This obviously is an issue very near and dear to my heart,” she said, accusing the media of having reported “breathlessly” about her tanning bed while they “couldn’t be bothered” to properly investigate President Barack Obama’s past record.
“You would think the media — those watchdogs of the public trust — would be interested in this. But they refused to vet Barack Obama. With tingles up their legs, they shielded him,” she wrote. “So, as Breitbart declared in his last CPAC speech, we — the everyday patriotic citizens of the United States — will do the vetting the media refused to do.”
