43 years old. Saddening.
Since it doesn’t say how he died, I’m going to have to go with: First victim of the Sweet Meteor of Death.
SURPRISED WE MUCH?: The Left are being assholes about it (well, maybe not all of them).
My personal favorite? Matt Yglesias’ “Conventions around dead people are ridiculous. The world outlook slightly improved with Andrew Breitbart dead.”
So Matt would not take it amiss if someone took a leak on his grandfather’s grave? Good to know.
THE LAST HURRAH:
He may have been the greatest genius I’ve ever met, with a keen, intuitive mind. Although he had been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder — he had a freewheeling quality about him, and his schedule was quite improvisational – Breitbart was also capable of a laser-like focus on whatever subject captured his interest. There were times you’d be talking to him and, if that spark of passionate interest hit, his luminous blue eyes would glow with an intensity that was almost frightening.
TWEET OF THE DAY: “Today, some leftists will make nastier and more hateful comments about Andrew Breitbart than they’ll ever make about Islamic terrorists.”
