After Being Booted Off ABC's Election Special, Andrew Breitbart Spent Election Night Roaming the Streets (VIDEO)

Controversial conservative provocateur Andrew Breitbart was initially slated to be part of ABC's election night coverage. However, after being pressured by liberal interest groups, the network unceremoniously booted Breitbart from the telecast, claiming that Breitbart had misrepresented to the public the nature of his role on ABC.

Initially, Breitbart was outraged, declaring ABC had "damaged my brand." However when 'Red Eye's (weekdays 3 AM ET on Fox News) Andy Levy asked him about the incident, Breitbart was much calmer, declaring it "the love affair that never happened."

Then the Los Angeles resident described how he ended up spending election night:

"I went down to the little burg near me, called Westwood, and I gave live analysis to people on the street on what exactly happened."

Breitbart jests (we think.) But, really, we wouldn't put street preaching past any of TV's political polemicists, were they to had lose their privileged perch in prime time. In fact, New Yorkers might be wise to turn the other direction if they see Keith Olbermann walking towards them on the street this weekend.
