Andrew Breitbart

It is with a heavy heart and sorrow that we receive the news the death of Andrew Breitbart.  Breitbart, a mere 43 years old, was a passionate vanguard for truth, conservatism, libertarianism and the Tea Party.

From Wikipedia…

  • Breitbart often appeared as a speaker at Tea Party movement events across the U.S. For example, Breitbart was a keynote speaker at the first National Tea Party Convention at Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville on February 6, 2010.[20]
  • Breitbart launched a number of websites, including Breitbart.com,[24] BigHollywood.com,[25] BigGovernment.com,[26] BigJournalism.com,[27] and BigPeace.com.[28]
  • Breitbart was married to Susannah Bean, the daughter of actor Orson Bean, and had four children

I had the occasion to discuss baseball with Breitbart at Mike Shannon’s restaurant last summer during the Smart Girls Summit.  He told me,  “…baseball is the only TV I watch.”  He watched any game he could get his eyes on… …not just his favorites.  “Otherwise, TV is a waste.”  Unfortunately, the name of his favorite team escapes me.

Brietbart will be sorely missed in our movement, and his passing will become a clarion call for us to step up and fill the void left by his absence.

Today we pray for his wife, children, friends, and family.

God Bless.
