Today we remember Andrew Breitbart. I won’t deny that I worry about the conservative movement. Breitbart was unique. He was legend. There really is no one like him. He had that mix of high intelligence yet shear balls to take a stand when no one else would. He was fearless but always made sure he was accurate. He was everything the GOP was lacking. He had fight, guts, strategy and tenacity.
He was a happy warrior.
I was out in the hall charging my cellphone at CPAC when Breitbart came down the hall with is posse. I got a chance to watch and listen to him speak and said hi when he looked my way. His eyes don’t miss a thing. He looked at me and followed my phone cord to the outlet in the wall. He just smiled and did that head thing of acknowledgment. I was mesmerized by how blue his eyes were. I have only seen eyes that blue and piercing on my daughter so it was hard for me not to notice that. He was lively when he talked. I couldn’t help but stare and be happy that I needed to charge my phone.
Here is an account of the last hour before Breitbart died.
It appears that he had a show in the works with CNN…
Who could ever forget his crashing of Anthony Weiner’s press conference. It was sheer brilliance!
