Andrew Breitbart Hearts Bank of America

We don’t expect…well…much of anything from Andrew Breitbart. But even we were shocked when we pulled this from his Twitter feed a couple of days ago.

“Love your ATMs!” “Have a great day.”

You’ve got to be shitting me.

Those of you out there who have ever glanced at Breitbart’s Twitter feed know that it’s not exactly a bastion of love and warmth. In fact, this is perhaps the first sentiment of genuine affection we’ve ever seen on there. For a bank. A bank that was bailed out with billions of our tax dollars. A bank that, days before Breitbart’s tweet, shifted the burden of $73 billion in toxic assets onto U.S. taxpayers.

Breitbart claims to be something of a libertarian. His Big Government website used to be anti-bailout back when the Tea Party was worked up about the issue. Now that Occupy Wall Street has taken the mantle on bailouts and government collusion with the big banks, Breitbart’s blowing Twitter kisses at Bank of America like a hooker at Fleet Week.
