Matt Yglesias slams Breitbart’s Army as ‘personality cult,’ happy warriors return fire

What’s even more amazing how awesome he thinks he is. When he’s not telling you that your kids just aren’t as important as Barack Obama’s, he’s busy placing dead last in the personality pageant.

Guess the recognition of his own numerous failures finally got to him, because today, he lashed out at Twitterers whose avatars feature the late Andrew Breitbart.

Because unlike Matt, Breitbart was and still is worthy of admiration and, you know, genuine respect.

They certainly don’t! Nor do they have the caché of, say, a Matt Yglesias.

Ah, but it turns out that there were some happy warriors who were more than willing to give Matt the attention he so desperately craves. They decided to pay tribute to the self-righteous, professional whiner by temporarily plunking his mug into their Twitter avatars:

It’s delightful!

For the most part, they’ve returned to their original avatars (after all, Yglesias is a bit toxic to sensible people), but Matt should still draw some comfort from his own mini personality cult! And hopefully that won’t preclude him from membership in his other cult of choice:

Eh, it’s tough to be self-aware when you’re that self-absorbed.

  • Woody Pfister

    Even the Obama Phone women has been deprogrammed from the Obama cult, but not Matt Yglesias!!!

  • Leroy Whitby

    Man, that Leroy guy is funny!

    • James Atkins

    The only folks who self loathing liberals hate more than themselves are the good folks that held them accountable in life.

    Breitbart Lives.

    Says the guy with the Olin Mills avi.

  • V the K

    Weird thing for a guy to say who uses Andrew Sullivan as his Twitter icon.


    That’s himself?

    No way.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Someone is upset that pasty,smug, nihilistic advocates of decay and failure are a dime-a-dozen these days , while Andrew Breitbart was a once in a generation inspiration.

    Sorry hater, Breibarts picture is worth more than your picture.

  • TomJB

    So how many Facebook users still have the middle name “Hussein” for “solidarity” with candidate Obama… From 2008?! I venture a wager than more than are annoying Yglesias now


    What a small pathetic little man—or girlie man.

  • Randi Starr

    exactly what purpose does this man serve? A scare tactic for what can happen if you don’t abort your child?

  • Voting Female

    Me: Who are you, stranger? Him: Why I’m the famous cult figure Matty Glassyeyes. Could you not tell from my ‘Obama With Halo Smoking A Blunt’ Twitter avatar?

  • Gallatin
