Andrew Breitbart died unexpectedly yesterday at the age of 43.
Republicans have been calling him fearless, a patriot, and a great and tireless warrior, among other things, ostensibly because of things like this...
Andrew Breitbart, a Washington Times columnist who oversees Breitbart.com and BigHollywood.com, tapped into the anti-Kennedy vein in the hours after [Senator Ted Kennedy's] death was announced, posting a series of Twitter messages in which he called Kennedy a “villain,” a “duplicitous bastard” and a “prick.”Breitbart personified everything that is wrong with political discourse today.
"I'm more than willing to go off decorum to ensure THIS MAN is not beatified,” Breitbart wrote. “Sorry, he destroyed lives. And he knew it."
Andrew Breitbart disappeared yesterday in less than dramatic fashion and we can only hope that a little bit of the caustic vitriol, hate, and disdain that Mr. Breitbart embraced departed this world with him...never to return.
