Today, some leftists will make nastier and more hateful comments about Andrew Breitbart than they’ll ever make about Islamic terrorists.(image) 26 minutes ago via Seesmic ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

And, there has been some of that, as tasteless as it is to celebrate the death of another.

    There are only two good things about liberals: 1st, they eventually, inexorably DIE. 2nd, they become yellow entrailed sand bags.

    All we need now is Santorum to get hit by a bus full of transgendered people going to a drag show, and the world would be all the better.

    Andrew was one of my favorite people and conservatives. May he rest in peace and all of us true Americans thank him for all he done for us. As for all of these low down scum people who celebrate his passing and had to make ruthless comments I hope all of crawl back under the rocks your came from in life ! Typical no class left wing liberals !

    Sometimes GOD answers prayers…..plenty of the people he hurt with his distrotions and outright slander prayed for his demise. Today God answered in the affirmative. People of his kind are never missed.
