Andrew Breitbart---visionary, warrior, pioneer, entrepreneur, patriot, friend, husband, father---passed away today. He was 43.
I deeply admired his fearlessness, his passion, his full embrace of life, his love for his kids and wife, and was so grateful for his friendship. He was a ball to be around: full of laughter, always smiling, always with a twinkle in his eye.
The conservative movement has lost one of its heroes, but the gutsy framework and go-get-'em attitude he inspired---as well as his unwavering desire to tell the truth---lives on, and we'll all carry it forward.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
Here's the obituary posted on one of his greatest professional legacies, his website www.BigHollywood.com :
