Breitbart's version of Alinsky's rules

From Andrew Breitbart's "pragmatic primer" in Chapter 7 of Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World:
  1. Don't be afraid to go into enemy territory.
  2. [Use video to] expose the left for who they are -- in their own words.
  3. Be open about your secrets.
  4. Don't let the Complex use its PC lexicon to characterize you and shape the narrative.
  5. Control your own story -- don't let the Complex do it.
  6. Ubiquity is key.
  7. Engage in the social arena.
  8. Don't pretend to know more than you do.
  9. Don't let them pretend to know more than they do. (Ask for sources and evidence and ask why.)
  10. Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.
  11. Don't let them get away with ignoring their own rules.
  12. Truth isn't mean. It's truth.
  13. Believe in the audacity of hope.
This list needs some editing. Given his ADHD tendencies, Breitbart doesn't tend to spend much time polishing his prose. Even so, it's a very good list.
