Andrew Breitbart dead at 43.

( – promoted by Rob “EaBo Clipper” Eno)

Reports are surfacing that conservative media personality Andrew Breitbart has died of a “massive heart attack” this morning.  Shocking news indeed.  Breitbart was only 43 years old.

Recently, Breitbart announced that he was in possession of video tapes of President Obama in college and that vetting of Obama would be more substantive this time around.

Not one for conspiracy theories myself, I’m sure they will abound in the coming days.

With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart.

Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.

We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.

    The left will go cross-eyed, trying to suppress their delight and maintain a solemn expression.

    Look for huffington to put on extra moderators, so as to not embarrass itself.

    Natural causes at age 43… That’s just about the worst thing that can happen to a family. May God look out for his poor wife and kids.

    He was a master at what he did.   We owe it to him to continue to fight the good fight…..

    I guess it shows what people really think of both of them.  It shows they respected the power of the stories Bretibart brought forth, and it shows how corrupt many people think Obama is.

    Wow, what a gut punch, what can I say. Have to say something though, so here goes

    Andrew Breitbart was the best grassroots conservative warrior in the world, bar none.

    No one could match his energy, his bravery, his brilliance and most of all his results. He had the rare ability to communicate his core principles in a way that resonated and captivated people. He delivered his message with passion, and it was the right message.

    But as big as Andrew’s bark was, hit bite was bigger. Among Andrew’s many concrete achievements, he decimated the vast American cancer known as ACORN. He took down liberal golden boy and arrogant nut Anthony Weiner. And he did these things brilliantly, and fearlessly, despite being lampooned by the media and called every name in the book (predominately: “liar”) along the way.

    Andrew called out the left for what it is, he named them, he exposed them. He shined a bright light on the rot which is their poisonous worldview and all of its many real world manifestations. No wonder the left hated him so much.

    When I last saw Andrew Breitbart speak, he entreated the audience to join him in his efforts.

    Now he’s gone, but maybe its not too late for us to listen.

    FRUM on Breitbart:

    “This is where it becomes difficult to honor the Roman injunction to speak no ill of the dead. It’s difficult for me to assess Breitbart’s impact upon American media and American politics as anything other than poisonous. When one of the leading media figures of the day achieves his success by his giddy disdain for truth and fairness-when one of our leading political figures offers to his admirers a politics inflamed by rage and devoid of ideas-how to withhold a profoundly negative judgment on his life and career? Especially when that career was so representative of his times?”

    Very sad that someone so young was robbed of a full life, but I find myself nodding to Frums assessment on his accomplishments.

  • I briefly met Andrew Breitbart during the radio row put on by Talk Radio News Service during the recently passed New Hampshire primary.  I was helping produce the Ken Pittman Show as well as the Mid-Morning Magazine with Phil Paleologos with WBSM 1420 AM and in that capacity met Mr. Breitbart.

    In paticular, it was Tuesday morning, probably around 10 or 11 am, I can’t recall exactly but his show airs 9 am to 12 pm and a great multitude of famous pundits, policians, and others were flowing in & out of the packed room on the second floor of the Radisson.

    To be precise, it was 2 connecting rooms and I recongized Breitbart immediately as he walked into ours.  I ran over to try to litterally drag him over to our table.  I almost literally ran into his assistant who stopped me to ask if who he thought it was actually was Michael Steele (it was) so I asked to confirm if he was with Breitbart.  The both pledged to come over to our table as they had a couple of prior commitments but true to his word, Andrew Brietbart sat next to me while Phil Paleologos conducted about a 15 minute interview for the listening audience of the SouthCoast.  It was a blast to sit nearby and hear the two of them banter back and forth about the all-important primary as well as our perpetual principles.

    I met an impressive list of people during that radio row but it’s surreal that just a little less than two months later we would be mourning the passing of Andrew Breitbart.

  • Yellow Cake?

    A special pile of human excrement.  Villain. Duplicitous bastard. Prick.

    All this could be used to described Andrew Brietbart, I suppose, but this is how Brietbart spoke of Ted Kennedy in the hours after his death.

    If you are afraid of the moratorium of speaking ill of the dead, I’m sure Andrew would wish that you would apply the same standard to him that he applied to Ted Kennedy and others. After all, Republicans are totally against special treatment for any group of people.  

  • Even Peggy……….

    It is not progress when you become what you hate, when you take on its sickest aspect.

    Andrew and I talked about this that day on the plane. I agreed with his passion: We’re in a big struggle, we have to fight. His argument was in a way like Flannery O’Connor’s: You have to push back hard against the age that is pushing you. But he agreed too that politics can leave you twisted and deformed inside, that fighting those who would impose their will can leave you as consumed as they are. You have to be careful and not let political struggles take over your life, your affections-your soul.
