For Andrew Breitbart, ACORN story = Abu Ghraib + Impeachment

Gee, no delusions of grandeur here, right?

And imagine if the right-wing media uncovered news stories on a regular basis, they'd become insufferable. It's bad enough that they stumbled onto the ACORN hidden-camera story and are treating it as a turning point in investigative journalism, not to mention U.S. history. Fact: It's not.

But shhh, don't tell Breitbart. He's so unfamiliar with how actual journalism (and history) works that he earlier convinced himself the marginal ACORN story was this year's Abu Ghraib. And now it's morphed into and Clinton impeachment:

The left is betting that 2009 is 1998 again and that the media will help them out like last time. Mr. Obama is betting that Mr. Clinton's 1998 strategy and his resources can extricate him from this growing mess.

Yeah, Obama's (non-existent) "mess" with ACORN is just like when the U.S. Congress began voting on whether to remove Bill Clinton from office. Just give the Breitbart a couple more weeks. By then, I'm sure he'll be writing about how the ACORN story sits right along D-Day and the battle at Gettysburg in terms of pivotal moments in U.S. history.
