The Passing Of Andrew Breitbart

The death of Andrew Breitbart at age 43 is a tragedy on many levels. His four children have lost their father, his wife has lost her husband, and the modern conservative movement has lost one of its most important voices.

Breitbart was eloquent and aggressive in pursuit of intellectual honesty and in defense of conservative values. He was precisely what the conservative movement in America needed during the past decade. Indeed, when the modern cultural and political history of America is written, Breitbart should be the man credited with breaking the back of the race card, in addition to bringing down ACORN and Rep. Tony Weiner. He was a force of nature. His passing leaves a huge hole in the American mosaic.

I have to confess, the "natural causes" vagueness would drive the conspiracy-theory Left NUTS if it happened to one of theirs.

One hears of poisons like ricin (granted, not as toxic as it once was), one wonders if it could have been a hit.
