Andrew Breitbart, 1969 - 2012
I am completely gob-smacked
so anyway, Andrew Breitbart passed away suddenly early this morning. He was 43 and leaves behind a wife and four small children.
I'm at a loss for words. I did not know the man personally, but I admired his "larger than life" attitude and his fearlessness.
It is said that "One man with courage is a majority". Andrew Breitbart was a majority of one.
h/t to rdbrewer over at Ace of Spades HQ (lots of other cool Breitbart vids at the link) and to Ben Howe for making the vid.
The dextrosphere is full of remembrances of Andrew Breitbart this evening:
Stoat Weasel is succinct and to the point
Robert Stacy McCain (I almost had lunch with him last week, but that's another story for another time) doubles up here and here. Read them all.
Tonight, we mourn the passing of our Champion.
Tomorrow, we take up his campaign. Hammer and tongs, bitches. Hammer and f'n tongs.
