The second monthly luncheon with featured speaker Andrew Breitbart was excellent. (Check out the Tolbert Report for more coverage of this event.)

First, we got to hear from Dave Elswick of KARN   who came up with the idea of this luncheon, and then from Teresa Crossland of Americans for Prosperity. After listening to their inspiring short talks I had determined in my heart that I was going to get the word out about these luncheons to all my conservative friends who want to know what is going on politically in Washington and in our beloved Arkansas.

Below is a story Breitbart told at the luncheon today. He had earlier told it on Sean Hannity’s show:

BREITBART: I was always fearful. I would go to bed at night thinking, I’m going on TV tomorrow. I’m going to on the Bill Maher show.

HANNITY: I remember talking to you about this.

BREITBART: Yes, and going on the Bill Maher show, you wake up in the middle of the night thinking what if I say the wrong thing? What if the audience boos me? What if Bill Maher smirks at me?

I had AN experience where Bill Maher smirked at me. The audience booed me the entire time. I was insinuated that I was a racist by Professor Michael Eric Dyson and comedian Sarah Silverman as I walked off the stage, went to my seat and went onto my seat and said “slimy.”

Worst-case scenario and then my family was in the green room and it was like a funeral. They said I’m so sorry that that happened to you. I said you have no idea. It was liberating.

HANNITY: Why? Because most people would do everything in their power to avoid that —

BREITBART: That’s why people relate to Sarah Palin. It is why they relate to Ann Coulter or Michele Bachmann or even a Clarence Thomas. Somebody who has been attacked mercilessly and shows that you can survive. That’s why they tried to destroy you to demoralize others who would join the fight.

HANNITY: You know, it’s interesting you say all these because there’s not a person that I know in the conservative — you told a very actually compelling story about the Clarence Thomas and how that motivated to you pursue this career.

But it’s interesting to me, over the years, I have a friend of mine here from Atlanta, when I left Atlanta, the Atlanta Journal Constitution said, you know, 1996 was a good year. The Olympics came and Hannity left.

When I left Huntsville, Alabama, goodbye to the talk show host from hell. After you are called a Nazi, a racist, a bigot and a homophobe all these times, at some point I don’t care. You get immune to it.

BREITBART: Not only do you learn to be immune to it, you also find that people come out of the woodworks and say thank you for fighting and standing up for what is right. That is like manna from heaven. It’s the greatest thing in the world. I live in Hollywood where I used to cynically think that Hollywood was —

    So, the right wing media is, then, obviously objective and never biased huh? Are you drunk or just nuts? They’re both biased.
