(Newser) – The GOP has suddenly gotten cold feet about Andrew Breitbart, canceling a fundraiser later this month in Beverley Hills where he was to appear with Michael Steele. The RNC tells CNN the event was just being rescheduled for the fall, during one of its already planned trips to California, to save some dough. Right. We're sure it has absolutely nothing to do with the Shirley Sherrod controversy that turned the conservative blogger into a national villain, and will probably get him sued. Nothing at all.
