Rep. Louie Gohmert paid a 14-minute tribute to Andrew Breitbart on the floor of Congress today. ”He figured out a way to deal with these issues and to address what was sucking the nutrients and life from this host country. It’s really a cancer,” he said. “He figured out how to shine sunlight inside offices of what was happening, and gave a good dose of chemotherapy to the cancer.” He also compared the conservative firebrand to John Quincy Adams, whose abolitionist efforts later convinced Abraham Lincoln to end slavery. That’s a pretty strong reaction.
Steve Jobs tribute song: If the beat at the beginning sounds vaguely familiar to you, it’s because it’s the same beat that your iPhone makes when it rings. (All the beats were based on Apple products, by the way.) Threw us off for a second the first time. The song itself (made on a Mac) packs a lot of references into four minutes, including one about how the rapper (his name’s Cal, and he’s part of a duo called Timeflies) doesn’t support Flash.
