Video clip of the day

Before our featured video today, a quick story...

Back in the 1880s sometime in a dusty Texas cow town a dispute over a card game or a lady of the night erupted into an all-out street brawl. The sheriff knowing he would need some help wired the governor to send the Texas Rangers.

The governor responded in the affirmative but reminded the sheriff that owing to the distance it might take a while.

This street riot raged all night and into the next morning. The sheriff was at a near-panic as the entire town was consumed by violence and the riot was at the point of breaking into an MGM sound stage just like in Blazing Saddles. Yes, that's how the West really was.

Anyway, towards the end of the 2nd day, a lone figure rode into town. The sheriff ran out to greet him as he recognized him as a Texas Ranger. The sheriff exclaimed, "Well, I'm damn sure glad to see you but... what the hell? There's only one of ya. Where are the rest of you?"

The Ranger paused slightly, lifted the brim of his cowboy hat and calmly replied, "You told the governor there was just one riot".

Folks, meet your lone Texas Ranger, Andrew Breitbart, who single-handedly shuts down an Organizing for America and union-funded protest of an event sponsored by Breitbard and Glen Beck over the weekend outside of Chicago.

We give this four unfiltered Camels and might have awarded it a brandy and cigar if any of those protesting clowns could have put together a coherent sentence to counter-challenge Breitbart.
