Eighty-Seven Seconds of Andrew Breitbart Yelling

I'm old, so I remember CPAC before Andrew Breitbart: Quiet. Since 2010, the first CPAC after Breibart's Big Government released James O'Keefe's ACORN video investigations, Breitbart's appearances at the conference have begun with media interviews, continued with assorted people confronting him on video, and ended with his own speeches, full of nostalgia for the stuff that just happened. This year's Breitbart Moment, captured next to the Occupy CPAC encampment by Emily Crockett:

It makes me wistful for the Breitbarts moments of yore. But I'm in luck! There's a new documentary on the way, Hating Breitbart.

I'm told that one of the scenes is from the 2010 CPAC, and features Breitbart yelling quotes into my notebook. I did not make any typos in that sentence.
