"With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart. We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.
"Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love."As the headline notes, we will not speak ill of the dead, but you might want to read Breitbart's remarks after the death of Teddy Kennedy to see what he really was about.
