While I am sure that the Left will have plenty of vile things to say about the passing of Andrew Breitbart, I don’t know that I’m quite ready to be angry yet. For now, it’s disappointment. I never got a chance to meet Mr. Breitbart–though he was scheduled to be at a bloggers conference in April that I plan to attend–but I know several people who can personally attest to the kind of man he was both in front of and behind the cameras.
Personally, while I could never put anything together like NRO writer Jonah Goldberg did today due in part to my lack of personal acquaintance, as a conservative there was a certain comfort in knowing that Mr. Breitbart was out there fighting the fight. That comfort lives on in other folks–Michelle Malkin and Jim Hoft and Ed Morrissey among the more well known, and Tabitha Hale and Melissa Clouthier and Kristina Ribali and Kurt Schlichter among the lesser known–but without Andrew Breitbart there is most certainly a void.
The Resurgent Right and New Media lost a legend today. God bless Andrew Breitbart, and we here at America’s Right extend our thoughts and prayers to him and to his family.
