It’s not everyone who gets to leave this world amid a flurry of insults across the Twitterverse; insults that are infinitely repeated with cheerful, albeit heavy hearts by one’s fans.
But it’s what Andrew Breitbart would have wanted.
Many are stunned, myself included, and yet the inevitable Thought Heard ‘Round The Blog World is, “An Army of Andrew Breitbarts.” Many will and already have paid better tribute than I can possibly hope to muster. It’s everywhere. And beautiful.
But as the accolades pour in from every corner, one especially should make Andrew especially proud:
You know, if you have a blog and haven’t earned any direct targeting from the enemy in a while, do yourself and the world a favor and go into the enemy camp and earn some respect for yourself, if not from the enemy. Take a few jabs. Toughen up. And if you get as good as you give, wear it like a badge of honor. Andrew certainly did.
. . .run to where the noise of the battle is, get in there land a few verbal punches of your own. More importantly, please aim them at the opposition. -Joan
R.I.P. Andrew Breitbart.
Many thanks to the BlogFather for the comment nod: [And to Ed Driscoll] : “The biggest mistake we can make at this juncture is to go back to waiting around for the next Whoever to ride in and save us. Because that’s a strategy full of FAIL.”
