“A Special Pile of Human Excrement” Dies

Andrew Breitbart, who opined on Ted Kennedy’s death that “he was a special pile of human excrement” has died, fortunately for the world,  at the age of 43.  Whatever his father-in-law wants to believe, it was not of natural causes.

And why anyone who witnessed the viciousness of his personality and his use of it against others would have nice words to say about him, is beyond me.

It is particularly illuminating that the phalanx of right wing presidential candidate zombies who want to impose their special brand of morality on the country admire a man with none, of any kind.

 

From the campaign trail, the Republican presidential candidates offered their condolences.

“That’s shocking, obviously prayers go out to him and his family,” said Rick Santorum, who called Breitbart a “powerful force.”

“What a huge loss, in my opinion for our country, and certainly for the conservative movement,” added Santorum, who was stumping in Dalton, Ga. “I’m crestfallen.”

“Ann and I are deeply saddened by the passing of @AndrewBreitbart: brilliant entrepreneur, fearless conservative, loving husband and father,” tweeted fellow presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

“Andrew Breitbart was the most creative conservative in the country, in his use of technology, in his understanding of how to wage cultural war using the new media, in his courage in standing up and fighting, and I think in his zest and excitement for the life of politics and the life of ideas. It was an enormous tragedy to lose him. A tragedy for his family, but it’s a tragedy for the conservative movement and I think it’s a tragedy for America,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told POLITICO Thursday.

We should cheer every step of Shirley Sherrod’s defamation law suit against him and hope it continues against his estate.
