Andrew Breitbart RIP

This is shocking and heartbreaking news.  A terrible loss to us all.  Andrew Breitbart died at midnight in Los Angeles this morning.  RIP Andrew.  My deepest condolences to his family.
Jonah Goldberg's points are especially well said:  here and here.
Update:
Sunshine State Sarah links a lot of others feeling the same today.
Daily Kossacks trying to get Westboro Baptist Church to protest his funeral.  Stay Classy Dems.  Ironically Andrew Breithbart would love this for you guys revealing yourselves.
The Other McCain has various links...

As for those like David Frum who spoke badly of Andrew's passing...they reveal themselves.  I will not speak badly of Frum.  Frum is dead to me.
Jeff Goldstein has some of the comments from the left.  Again, Andrew would treat it as a badge of honor.

All American Blogger has an Andrew Breitbart tribute
Instapundit on readers' emails from Washington State:  Be Breitbart!

  1. He left behind some mighty big shoes to fill.

    1. There are some people who truly cannot be replaced. Oh people may rise up after them, but there is no replacing them. Andrew Breitbart is one of those rare individuals.

    2. Agreed. It will take thousands of us to carry his torch, but nobody will fill his shoes. He was the type of person that God only blesses us with once in several generations and even then only if we're lucky.

  2. Something that irks me is the story up on Drudge about AB having footage from Obama in his college days. It bothers me because (1) such footage (there's an antiquated term) is important enough that it should come out no matter what. It shouldn't remain in AB's domain. Hopefully it's not not looked away somewhere and some survivor has access to it. Also, the original source may have copies. (2) The whole story reeks of conspiratorial silencing: that AB may have died on the same date he planned to release something important is fishy, no? I don't like the conspiratorial aspect though.

    What are your thoughts, EBL?

    1. I do not want to spin conspiracy theories on the day of his death, but I am definitely watching how this plays out. They say they are releasing the material in ten days. I assume the format was video tape.

      And of course a part of me wants to believe this is just an elaborate ruse and Andrew Breitbart has only gone into hiding to surprise us in a few months with a bunch of revelations.

      You & me both, sister. God how I wish this were all just an elaborate set up to show how damned ugly the left is.
