Andrew Breitbart - 1969-2012

The old saying goes, "If you don't have anything good to say about a person, then don't say anything at all." Yet there are a handful of times where a person's death isn't all that sad (Names like the Reverend Jerry Falwell, Jesse Helms, and Osama Bin Laden immediately come to mind). Andrew Breitbart, in my mind, is an exception to this rule. While I do offer my condolences to the parents, wife, and four children he left behind and I will not say he deserved to die from natural causes, i'm not going to shed any tears over his death. Breitbart was an asshole masquerading as a journalist; a jerkoff who twisted the facts to fit his viewpoints and ruined a few careers wile doing it. From Shirley Sherrod to spitting on Ted Kennedy's corpse on Twitter, the man was an unpleasant, mean-spirited creep.

Edit From The Count: It speaks volumes that the first reaction to his death was yeah right another publicity stunt. This man has destroyed lives with his lies. As I said elsewhere. 2 deaths in the last 2 days, both small people. One in stature only, the other in every way imaginable.

I must say the rightwing's concerns about our words towards Breitbart might mean more to me if they weren't gathered around the radio or computer cheering on Limburger call a young woman a slut and a whore.

Well,you know,IOKIYAR.

civility is only something you tell liberals to do. Conservatives don't have to follow such rules of conduct.
