    Certainly wasn't a fan, but sorry to see anyone die so young.

    PoliticoConservative journalist and activist Andrew Breitbart died early Thursday morning in Los Angeles at the age of 43, says a report from Big Journalism, one of Breitbart’s websites.

    “Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles,” writes Big Journalism writer Larry Solov. “We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.”

    I expect they will.
    I don't find your comment in good taste, but perhaps the rest of the commenters will surpass you.

    I saw that. This is so horrible and stunning. Of course, one of the biggest icons for the libertarian-conservative platform has to die but the crazy so-con nutballs go on living. Ugh

    Personally, I wish him peace. However, that's more than he did in his life for those who passed.




    Andrew Breitbart Unleashes A Torrent Of Invective Against Sen. Ted Kennedy’s Legacy On Twitter

    Early this morning, news broke that Sen. Ted Kennedy had passed away after serving in the U.S. Senate for nearly 50 years. Soon after, conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart began a sustained assault on Kennedy’s memory, tweeting “Rest in Chappaquiddick.”

    Over the course of the next three hours, Breitbart unapologetically attacked Kennedy, calling him a “villain,” “a big ass motherf@#$er,” a “duplicitous bastard” and a “prick.” “I’ll shut my mouth for Carter. That’s just politics. Kennedy was a special pile of human excrement,” wrote Breitbart in one tweet.

    When Politico’s Michael Calderone highlighted Breitbart’s attacks in an article called, “Not all Kennedy critics hold fire,” a pleased Breitbart tweeted:

    When a fellow conservative tweeted to Breitbart asking him not to treat Kennedy like they believe some on the left treated the passing of Tony Snow and Ronald Reagan, Breitbart responded “How dare you compare Snow & Reagan to Kennedy! Why do you grant a BULLY special status upon his death? This isnt lib v con.” Despite his claim that his attacks weren’t about “lib v. con,” Breitbart repeatedly justified them in ideological terms.

    “Look, this man was granted absolution for nothing. Class, life station played a part but PARTY was everything. GOP couldnt get away with it,” complained Breitbart in one tweet. “IF a GOP possesses 1/100 of human failings of T. Kennedy he/she is TOAST,” he claimed in another. “In this moment I cant but recognize absolute backwardness of media & society. Bush=EVIL. Ted Kennedy=SAINT. Im gonna keep fighin’, folks,” Breitbart said in another tweet.

    It appears that heart attack likely

    "His death was confirmed to msnbc.com by the Los Angeles Coroner's Office.

    According to the Associated Press, Breitbart was walking near his house in the Brentwood neighborhood shortly after midnight Thursday when he collapsed, his father-in-law Orson Bean said.

    Someone saw him fall and called paramedics, who tried to revive him. They rushed him to the emergency room at UCLA Medical Center, Bean said.
    Breitbart had suffered heart problems a year earlier, but Bean said he could not pinpoint what happened. "

    Upon reading his Wikipedia entry, it says that within hours of Senator Ted Kennedy's passing, Breitbart called him a villain, a duplicitous bastard, a prick, and a special pile of human excrement.

    If any grievance is expressed for Breitbart, particularly by his detractors, they will have shown more reserve and respect than this man could have produced.

    I like. I feel no special need to suddenly cuddle up to someone whose life was devoted to harm simply because death stopped them.

    I do of course feel sorry for his family.

    You can make up said points by watching a Glee episode or or commenting on someone's shoes today while using either the terms "dated" or "fabulous".
