Andrew Breitbart has passed away. May he rest in peace.
Here’s a brief In Memoriam from Andrew’s very own BigHollywood; and a longer piece from what is essentially one of Andrew’s hometown newspapers, The Hollywood Reporter.
I never met the man, but he was an inspiration. The dextrosphere revolution Andrew helped kickstart just a few years ago has grown to become an established alternative to the Old Guard press and Leftie websites. He was instrumental in its rise. And for that many Americans owe him a debt of gratitude.
The dextrosphere will most certainly live on, but we shall never forget the feistiness; the strategic and tactical brilliance; and the leadership Andrew brought into it – and that he so generously shared with the Tea Party movement and all liberty-loving people across America.
Farewell, Happy Warrior! Your warrior spirit will keep on fighting in all of us.
UPDATE: And make sure to read Roger Simon’s lovely eulogy, too.
