Andrew Breitbart on Ted Kennedy’s passing

With the death this morning of conservative activist Andrew Breitbart, and the inevitable debate over whether it’s ever appropriate to speak ill of the dead, this quote of Breitbart’s, about Senator Ted Kennedy’s death, comes to mind.  From Michael Calderone at Politico:

Andrew Breitbart, a Washington Times columnist who oversees Breitbart.com and BigHollywood.com, tapped into the anti-Kennedy vein in the hours after the senator’s death was announced, posting a series of Twitter messages in which he called Kennedy a “villain,” a “duplicitous bastard” and a “prick.”

“I’m more than willing to go off decorum to ensure THIS MAN is not beatified,” Breitbart wrote. “Sorry, he destroyed lives. And he knew it.”

No comment.

In a related note, concern is growing among some sectors of the right that President Obama killed Breitbart.  Seriously.
