Andrew Breitbart Clings to Death
It’s official! Andrew Breitbart died of a terminal case of raging asshole:
Andrew Breitbart, the conservative blogger whose posting of a sexually explicit photo of former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner led to the congressman’s downfall, died of heart failure, the Los Angeles County Coroner said in an autopsy report released Friday.
The news broke late Friday afternoon, so we may have to wait another day for the conspiracy theories to kick in. Meanwhile, we’d like to note a few remarkable things from CNN’s lead paragraph.
1. The writer felt it necessarily to identify Breitbart for a general news audience. Breitbart died unknown, at least as far as regular Americans are concerned.
2. Since Breitbart died unknown, it was necessary to say something about him that the general public might recognize. Oh, right — he’s the dude who retweeted Weiner’s weiner!
3. Only Breitbart didn’t retweet Weiner’s weiner. “Publius” gets the shot, and Dan Riehl gets the kill — Breitbart himself didn’t run with it until after his weekend minions developed the story.
And so Andrew Breitbart finally passes, best known for retweeting a dick tweet that he didn’t retweet. Couldn’t happen to a better cocksucker.
