What killed Andrew Breitbart?

Andrew Breitbart is dead.  The infamous conservative web antagonist died just after midnight this morning.  What killed Breitbart?  He was only 43 years old.  The family says he “passed away unexpectedly from natural causes.”  Suddenly. “Unexpectedly.”

That’s odd.

Breitbart was the master of attack journalism.  Heavy on the attack, light on the “journalism.”  The more outrageous the attack the more ad space he sold and the richer and more influential he became.  The tea party loved this guy.  The people he attacked did not.  Especially when Breitbart got his facts wrong.  Which he did often.  Too often.

According to the statement from his lawyer:

Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.

It’s unclear if the “boldly” part refers to his web attacks or something else.  In any case, a 43 year man is now dead. Unexpectedly.
