First and foremost, as a husband and father myself, I don't even want to imagine what his family is going through this morning. My heartfelt prayers are with them as they enter this time of grieving.
Secondly is the blow to the conservative cause for which Breitbart so unashamedly fought. I loved to watch this guy operate. Whether it was being interviewed by statist "journalists", confronting statist activists, or giving it back to those activists upon being confronted, I can think of few conservatives out there in the public eye who were less afraid of the proglodytes out there. Where they were used to their political adversaries shrinking away upon being called nasty names like "racist," "sexist," and the other usual garbage, Breitbart would laugh in their face and call them out on their hypocrisy.
Not surprisingly, Andrew Breitbart drove the statist left absolutely bonkers precisely because he refused to abide by their self-serving rules of so-called debate, and wouldn't back down to their hostile tactics. My hope is that Breitbart's Big Hollywood/Government/Journalism/Peace websites (see my blogroll) will continue under the able hands of the editors who Breitbart hired to run these sites. They are one of my, and many others', daily stops on the Web. It is also my hope that Breitbart was on the scene long enough for conservatives out there to get a clue and discover that the world doesn't end when the Left calls you nasty names in an attempt to shame you into silence.
Thank you, and God Bless you, Andrew Breitbart for all that you did, and may your legacy continue.
