The conservative author, commentator and media mogul apparently passed away from natural causes early this morning. He was 43.

Although we didn’t always agree with Breitbart, we admired his commitment to defending his position and jumping right into the debate — even in the comments of our posts.
 

What are the Right and the Left saying?

Read Slate’s excellent round-up of conservatives’ reactions, including Santorum’s, Gingrich’s, Palin’s and Drudge’s, here.

Michelle Malkin: “DEVASTATING. … I’m stunned. He was kinetic, brash, relentless, full of fight, the bane of the Left, and a mentor to the next generation of right-wing activists and citizen journalists.”

The Atlantic: Breitbart, the punk rock Republican

Democratic Underground and many other sites link to Fox News’ report.

Bizarrely, lots of Facebookers think Obama is the murderer mastermind behind Breitbart’s death.

The Awl: Republican provocateur Andrew Breitbart has apparently died of natural causes at the age of 43. This is extremely distressing to those of us who are not that many years younger.

Matt Yglesias tweets: “If you think @AndrewBrietbart’s opponents shouldn’t be glad he’s dead, you’re not taking his life’s work seriously.” Response: “@DetroitRight: @mattyglesias you ought to be shot ASSHOLE”
