Andrew Breitbart dead at 43

Daniel S. writes:

Conservative muckraker and perpetual irritant of the left Andrew Breitbart has passed away unexpectedly from natural causes.

From the article:

“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.

“I don’t know what to say. It’s devastating,” Bean told The Associated Press.”

Breitbart was a spark. This is a terrible loss.

The death of Breitbart is like the death of Lee Atwater over 20 years ago. They were the rare ones who knew how to fight the other side.

Brietbart was a good fellow. Not a great person, but a good fellow. I read his autobiography. It was fun because he was so normal, and so honest about his failings as a human being.
