From his his website:: "Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles," the note on his website read. "We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior. Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love."
From Wikipedia: Andrew Breitbart (February 1, 1969 – March 1, 2012) was an American publisher,commentator for the Washington Times, author,[and occasional guest commentator on various news programs, who served as an editor for the Drudge Report Web site. He was a researcher for Arianna Huffington, and helped launch her web publication The Huffington Post.
Most of all he loved attention and found great delight in reposting Tweets he received which were insulting. At CPAC he went outside and called the Occupy protestors "rapists" and repeated "BEHAVE YOURSELF" dozens of times. Security showed up and urged him back inside, but not before his rants were captured on camera. There is no such thing as bad publicity, you know.
Today, the right-wing blogosphere is full of conspiracy theories that "his enemies" arranged for special microwave signals to disrupt his heart, thus causing the heart attack that killed him while walking last night. Because he had been hinting at having "damaging video" of Obama in college, Andrew's followers know with certainty that it was Obama who offed him.
This reporter will not stoop to Andrew's level by making ugly comments about him in death like he did about Ted Kennedy. A simple Google search will head you in the direction of that information. He had kids, and now they don't have a dad.
He was admired by many conservatives. Michelle Malkin, a conservative blogger and television commentator, wrote in a blog post Thursday that his legacy “online and in the conservative movement is built to last.” She called him “a mentor to the next generation of right-wing activists and citizen journalists.”
We sure hope not.
