I’ll admit, some liberals have been nasty toward the death of Andrew Breitbart. 43 is far too young to die and his family does deserve condolences. But the fact remains that Breitbart was not a nice man. His life’s mission was to destroy people, using whatever means, honest or not, possible. He did not, however, deserve to die.
I wish though, that Breitbart had shown that amount of respect in the death of Ted Kennedy.
Over the course of the next three hours, Breitbart unapologetically attacked Kennedy, calling him a “villain,” “a big ass motherf@#$er,” a “duplicitous bastard” and a “prick.” “I’ll shut my mouth for Carter. That’s just politics. Kennedy was a special pile of human excrement,” wrote Breitbart in one tweet.
I remember similar comments coming from the right-wing blogosphere. So, maybe today isn’t the day to claim the moral high ground.
