The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

A Breitbart tribute: in their faces, every day

Written By: Bob - Mar• 02•12

Like many people, I’m still in shock over Andrew Breitbart’s death. He was a “happy warrior” that understood the culture war better than almost anyone, and became iconic in a remarkably short amount of time.

Andrew was also the loving husband and father that leaves behind a young widow and four small children. I don’t pretend to be privy to his finances or his provisions for his family, but it struck me this morning that one way we could honor his memory is to make sure they are taken care of if at all possible.

Here’s the idea I had, that I already pitched on Twitter: a Breitbart tee shirt sold through the “Big” sites with all profits going to the family.

The design above is just a quick mock-up pulling together a tee shirt background from Zazzle and the cover photo from Andrew’s Righteous Indignation, but it shows what could be done, and I like to think he’d get a kick out of imagining conservative college students wearing these in counterpoint to their clueless Che-loving classmates.

I hope someone at the “Big” sites runs with this idea, and I’d be the first in line to buy one.

    I’ll miss Mr. Breitbart terribly. He was a great man. I believe his greatest moment was when he challenged the cowards and tools of tyranny in regards to the utter contempt and insidious disrespect they showed for Sarah Palin, how he called out their terrible lack of chivalry and bigotry created to destroy a woman.

    Have to say, Andrew’s death is just far too convenient. Much to untimely, or timely, in the context of tyranny being imposed and enforced by our government. It is important to note that many Iranian government officials involved in their countries nuclear weapon program have been dying of late from “natural” causes, in particular heart related deaths.

    After all, a government headed by two notorious treasonous men, both chiefs of the two most powerful branches of government, the executive and judicial branches, who are behind the deaths of hundreds of people under a scheme of treason called “Fast and “Furious, who have to date managed to remain completely unaccountable for these murders and suffering, after all, would find it easy to murder a man such as Andrew Breitbart. An Andrew Breitbart who exposed this same two tyrant’s vote fraud organization, ACORN. An Andrew Breitbart who was prepared to expose a very revealing and inconvenient truth about the man who would be king if his tyranny is not checked.

    Will miss him and his badly needed fighting spirit. In a party whose opinion- shaping elites are still dominated by walking corpses like George Will and nattering ponces like Tucker Carlson he was a real breath of fresh air. I’m not sure I buy the idea of a conspiracy to kill this guy; but for God’s sake get your annual physicals and take care of yourself. 43 is just way too young.
