Andrew Breitbart's 5 Angriest Moments
In the two days since he collapsed dead near his home in Westwood -- likely from a heart attack -- conservative blogger and personality (and publisher and author and everything else) Andrew Breitbart, 43, has been praised for his Internet ingenuity and deep understanding of the media/the audience.
Breitbart often said, and his surviving friends now say, that he was truly happy doing what he did...
... which was mostly call politicians on their BS and expose the follies of the left. (And get the story up before anyone else, with the best headline, of course.)
"His main battle was reminding Americans" that this country was founded on "the pursuit of happiness, not the pursuit of despair," his chief deputy, Joel Pollack, told the Weekly yesterday.
Yet Breitbart's pursuit of happiness got progressively angrier over the years, as he wrecking-balled his way through press conferences and Occupy Wall Street protests, shouting down anyone who would (or wouldn't) listen.
We've never seen any public figure spit insults as venomous -- and just straight cruel -- as Breitbart on an angry streak.
Here are his five lowest lows. Or highest highs, depending on how you liked your Breitbart.
