The proper response to the left...


The left revels itself over the death of Andrew Breitbart. We are not really people to them. I am not into conspiracy theories but if the left wanted to take one pundit on the right out he would be it.

It is becoming more critical that we keep the House and take back the Senate and White House.  And that is just a start.  And we need to step up and take up where Andrew Breitbart left off...  Be Breitbart.  


Update: Rush's long time advertisers leave (hint:  Rush can find new advertisers, those advertisers need to find another market of 20 million people who buy things he sells).

  1. Breitbart did some good things but I think the toll it took on him was what ultimately did him in. I don't think anyone can carry around that much anger without the body giving way.

    Sorry about my blog format. Long story but I've not posted anything anyway so you're not missing out. I'll be around to comment here and there and whatnot and hopefully pick up soon from where everything left off.

    Cheers -

    1. Good to hear back from you! You are always welcome.

    2. Whatever his personality type, I am pretty sure the fight alone was not the reason he died. He loved the fight. As a cardiologist told me, stress (in itself) does not cause heart attacks. It is almost always a physical or tangible problem with a heart that causes it to fail.

  2. I'm wondering why the autopsy report isn't out yet. Not because I believe they'll find anything but arterial blockage and the like--rather--I think that longer delay gives conspiracy theories time to develop. Conspiracy theories give rise to wackiness and wackiness looks bad politically.

    As for the video--I commented here before I think that the video still needs to come out. The worst thing that could happen is that it buried and forgotten. Curiosity and truth will win out.

    1. A few weeks for the results is not unusual. They will run drug and chemical screenings as a matter of course with a young sudden death such as this one. I hope his family is engine their own doctor to review the information, but they seem to have been aware of a previous heart conditions so that may be part of it too. Again, I am more shocked by people's behavior after he died. I found that to be most revealing.

    2. EBL's right. It's not an assembly-line process...

      As with medical dramas such as E.R., CSI has had the unfortunate effect of altering our understanding of how immediately we can expect the pace of research or other scientific/forensic activities to take place.

      Just as money doesn't grow on trees, neither does timeliness.

  3. As an aside, EBL, folks' behaviour after death is always revealing. A lot of people loved Christopher Hitchens, but what he is most known for is his hit-piece obituaries after some notable died. He was generally mean, unfair, and could never be mistaken for benign. Hitchens didn't create the genre, but he made it popular today.

    Rush's apology comes from his business relationships with his sponsors. Professor Jacobson is discussing the growing trend of the Progressive Left using Private-Public Partnerships to shut down conservative voices and outlets. Ms Magazine is pressuring Clear Channel to get rid of Rush altogether.

    Being Breitbart will, in the short term, be as deadly as being Spartacus.

    1. There are a lot of people who are getting pissed off. Glenn Beck had to start the Blaze to deal with the advertising attack he faced at Fox. My guess though is Rush will do just fine in the end. He can find a new network if necessary. Millions of listeners are millions of listeners. But we need to fight back against this or the battle is already lost.

    2. I'd love to see Fluke sue Rush, his lawyers would relish the discovery process and rip her to shreds.

      As far as the Kennedy thing goes, Kennedy wasn't fooling anyone, including himself, what an utter bottom feeder scum he was.

  4. The advertisers who left Rush made a very dumb and weak business decision. They lost a huge investment they already made and will never recover the exposure and loyalty lost. They picked the wrong horse this time. Business is generally amoral and cowardly, as they have to be concerned for the livelihood of employees and stockholders. This usually forces them to take the path of least resistance. Companies that do otherwise can either fail or greatly benefit, but much of management in bigger business is avoiding risk and controversy. In this case, the actual smart and low risk move was to hold tight with Rush and let it pass.
