Andrew Breitbart, RIP

I’m beyond stunned.  Andrew Breitbart is . . . was one of the most vital, dynamic people I’ve ever met.  He crackled with energy and enthusiasm.  To learn that he is dead is almost unbelievable, in part because he was so young and in part because he lived with such intensity.

When I saw the headline, I thought it was some horrible joke and then realized it couldn’t be, as the report of his death is spread across each of his own internet publications:  Big Hollywood, Big Journalism, Big Peace, and Big Government.

This is a tremendous loss.  Not just to his family (although I cannot imagine what’s going on there, as he leaves very young children behind) and friends, but also to the conservative world.  Andrew thought outside of the box.  He was big and creative.  He understood his political opponents and used their personality, beliefs, and tactics to his own advantage.

This is so very sad.

RIP, Andrew Breitbart

    OMG! This is beyond awful. We lost one of the major figures in the conservative movement, and I can’t imagine what his family must be going through. Actually, I sort of can, because my father died suddenly of a heart attack at age 54.

    A wonderful, family man with a equally deep love for his country. He will be greatly missed but his work will continue by many who he inspired and nurtured to stand up and fight for our constitutional freedoms. Andrew was a Minuteman patriot who surely fought to the end. My prayers and condolences to his family and friends.

    Andrew Breitbart RIP.  Very sad day.

    Do yourselves a favor and avoid reading the comment sections of leftist media sources reporting Andrew’s passing.  Liberals are showing their true colors in the form of pure demonic hate.  It’s psychopathic.

    I wondered when hearing of this, who will rise to fill his shoes.  Then I saw this over at Instapundit

    This made me think of ‘Mr. Roberts’ and wonder if may now see dozens of Ens Pulvers rise to the occasion.  Perhaps i might, perhaps someone already established.  

    Breitbart’s talent was drawing the Left into the light so their hideous face was revealed.  We see that today in their response to his death.  The light he turned on is still shining, even as he has gone dark.

    Sadly, patriots die more quickly than traitors. Ted Kennedy, Chris Dodd, Jimmy Carter, Manning. Only one of them is not alive.

     If the Left celebrates, that is because they must. As with Dick Cheney, they are afraid of only a few conservatives. The rest aren’t really warriors or fighters. And thus the Left can only lay them down by indirect and cowardly means. That is their only means of besting the best.
