Breitbart back to Drudge

Luke Ford reports at his blog that Andrew Breitbart, the West Coast editor for the Drudge Report until he left in April to help launch the Huffington Post, returned to Drudge three weeks ago. Back in April, Breitbart issued a statement that said in part, "Bringing my former boss and longtime friend Arianna's intriguing friends to the blogosphere, the ultimate level playing field, makes perfect sense to me, and I am thrilled to be committed to such a groundbreaking project." Tonight, however, he suggested to Ford that political and cultural differences intervened: "I think it boiled down to this: mustache notwithstanding, I think John Bolton is a pretty swell guy. And, for the life of me, I can't fit all three of my kids into a Prius. Lord knows I tried."
