Andrew Brietbart featured in WaPo

A "new" conservative star? Well, it is the Washington Post we're talking about. The fact that Andrew Breitbart has been around for more than a few years making his mark in both Hollywood and Washington seems to have escaped Perry Bacon who did a nice write up of Andrew otherwise:

Andrew Breitbart blew into Washington recently for what amounted to a victory lap.The Internet entrepreneur spent last week soaking up accolades from conservatives for having offered guidance to the two twenty-somethings who posed as a pimp and prostitute and took a hidden camera into several ACORN offices. The pair filmed workers from the national liberal community group appearing to aid them as they inquired about starting a brothel -- a move that has put ACORN on the defensive and made the activists, James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, instant conservative heroes.

But in the end it's Breitbart who may be the biggest winner.

It was the 40-year-old Breitbart who masterminded the strategy of releasing the videos one at a time on his Web site, Big Government, as a way of maximizing exposure of the campaign against ACORN. And it is Breitbart who is being heralded as the conservative movement's new Web wizard and the answer to liberal sites such as the Huffington Post and Talking Points.

In Washington, the burly, white-haired Breitbart --who runs his Web sites from his basement in Westwood, Calif., near Hollywood -- was shuttled between on-air television interviews and meetings with conservative activists. Talk radio host Laura Ingraham praised him as an "Internet mogul," and he was invited to speak at both the Heritage Foundation think tank and a black-tie conservative dinner, where he spoke only minutes before former vice president Richard B. Cheney.

With his two websites - Big Hollywood and Big Government - Breitbart has captured the essence of the liberal nexus of celebrity, money, and Democratic politics. There is a well worn path between Washington and Hollywood and any Democrat who seeks office must travel that road and pay their respects to the deep pocket moneymen and women out west. Those Hollywood types also have ties to other industries with other financial whales who can do a candidate an enormous amount  of good.

Breitbart exposes this connection daily. He will be an important media figure as conservatives seek to counter this liberal nexus in the near future.
