Or so it seems, in this year 2012. The fearless New Media genius, Andrew Breitbart, who proved to be such a substantial thorn in the side of the liberal establishment, has suddenly died. His work, and his example, will be sorely missed. God rest his soul, and comfort his family, friends and admirers.
Update: Michelle Malkin has some examples of the leftist graciousness we have all come to know. And, yes, I’m including David Frum in that group of yawping jackals.
As the editors of National Review wrote, back in the early 70s, against the background of the seismic moral and cultural shifts of the preceding decade, we are now two nations. That is so today. Whether the civil war be cold or hot, and whether our prospects for victory be good or ill, I don’t intend to stand by and idly watch as my side loses. That is the lesson of Andrew Breitbart.
1969 - 2012. Rest in peace.
