Andrew Breitbart passes away at 43

Breitbart, a conservative commentator, Huffington Post co-founder, Drudge Report contributor, and veritable hurricane of political insight with four websites of his very own, is dead at 43, apparently from a heart attack.

He was known most recently for breaking the Anthony Weiner scandal on his website BigJournalism, and for participating in the conservative gay rights group, GOProud.

A force to be reckoned with, Breitbart will be missed. Here is a quote from his book Righteous Indignation:

“I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and — famously — I enjoy making enemies. Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands — who knows? — of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.”
