Andrew Breitbart Has Died

Conservative author Andrew Breitbart has died. The news first broke on his website this morning: “Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.”

He was the author of Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World! and Hollywood, Interrupted: Insanity Chic in Babylon — The Case Against Celebrity. His website obituary included part of a new conclusion he wrote for Righteous Indignation.

Here’s an excerpt: “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.”
