Even though I didnt like his opinions AT ALL, I feel bad for his family. His speeches made me furious, but maybe it reminds us all that life is to precious.

sorry, but im not of the mindset to say nice things about *******s. death is inevitable for everybody. when you live your life in a way to do harm and damage to other people, then when you die, i'm not going to spread roses on your casket. Now if only **** Cheney could suffer the same fate. Then Limbaugh, then Savage, and all the rest.

Nasty comments are liberalism on display. Closed minded, hateful, degenerate individuals who claim "tolerance" as their anthem... yeah, right. RIP Andrew.

This man was full of SO much hate I am not surprised.

Also would not be surprised if his autopsy shows that he was full of drugs - he was recently filmed drunk and disorderly in public.

I do feel sorry for his wife and kids - but he was a nasty, nasty liar - maybe(in time) they will live a happier life now that he is gone.

Andrew Breitbart, Lee A****er - you reap what you sow.

Damn. Poor Davy Jones. He only had 24 hours of peace before he had to have Breitbart spewing his venom amongst the dead.

The world lost a warrior queen, a drama queen. A self serving, self indulgent doughnut affectionado. A scheming, lying puke who found delight in the pain he caused others. I hope he died choking on his own tongue.
