Breitbart to Eric Holder: Investigate ACORN, or else.

Yes, it’s a threat.

And threats don’t get more direct than this: either AG Holder starts investigating ACORN, or Breitbart dumps what he still has on the scene in time to make a difference in the 2010 elections.

And this message is to Attorney General Holder: I want you to know that we have more tapes, it’s not just ACORN, and we’re going to hold out until the next election cycle, or else if you want to do a clean investigation, we will give you the rest of what we have, we will comply with you, we will give you the documentation we have from countless ACORN whistleblowers who want to come forward but are fearful of this organization and the retribution that they fear that this is a dangerous organization. So if you get into an investigation, we will give you the tapes; if you don’t give us the tapes, we will revisit these tapes come election time.

Italics in original. If this is a bluff… well. Every time somebody thought that Andrew Breitbart has been bluffing on the ACORN scandal, he’s turned out not to be. The latest one has Patterico almost gibbering in glee as he rakes the LA Times and James Rainey over the coals for their uncritical willingness to believe Lavelle Stewart; it doesn’t seem particularly safe to hope that this time is the time that Breitbart’s got nothing left.

I believe that the techincal term for this is ‘tagging.’

My congratulations to the Left: you’ve given the Right a taste for guerrilla art.


That’s on the specially-treated against graffiti wall of Shepard Fairey, who is of course best known for ripping off an AP photo to create the most iconic political image of 2008 – and the most ironic one of 2009 (not to mention, one of the most parodied).  For extra humor, Fairey likes to do precisely this kind of guerrilla art himself… and he’s probably swearing at Big Government‘s Best. Weblaunch. EVAR. right now anyway, which is a definite bonus.

Moving back to the main point, there’s at least one other tagging example (see BG’s link above for it); my guess is that they’re using a stencil and some spray paint.  As a law-abiding Republican I of course heartily wave smy finger* in the direction of whoever is doing such naughty things – bad street artists!  Bad!  No biscuit! – and I am explicitly shaking my head and intoning that this sort of thing not be duplicated…
