    People often celebrate the deaths of their perceived enemies.

    I'm suspect you've done the same.

    If you never have, then you are the bigger man.

    I certainly can't claim that title.

    Oh. So, you're going for the conflate-in-possible-hypocrisy-vis-a-vis-false-humility angle. Aren't you the biggest man.

    Turned on FOX News. You'd think the Pope died.

    Natural causes is a blanket term used to describe any cause of death that isn't immediately obvious (like murder, suicide, injuries, etc). I'm sure the COD will be refined once the autopsy and toxicology reports are complete.

    Could you reword that in a way that makes sense?

    The little voice in my head cried out a little "yippee," when I read the OP.

    That doesn't make me the biggest man.

    Just a normal human being.

    43 is way too young these days. He tragically leaves a family behind who will undoubtedly grieve his early passing for some time. I didn't agree with his politics or his approach but I won't celebrate his death. It would have been a greater victory for those on the opposite side if they could have changed at least some of his views in later life through reasoned argument. I know, I'm dreaming.

    Please spare me. Breitbart made his living by being a disgusting human being. Go read his Twitter feed and blog and tell me what a great man he was. He respected no one.

    Go right ahead. I won't know you said it. I'll be dead.

    What you call disgusting, I call exposing. He made his living pushing back on the left, which did not enjoy being expose. I've read his works, and enjoyed every last word.

    When one respects respectable people, one has little to worry about.

    He was a fraud. The only tragedy here is now that he's worm food, Shirley Sherrod's defamation lawsuit against him probably won't go anywhere. I hope she can go after his estate and get the damages she is rightfully owed as a result of his lies.

    Respect is earned. Breitbart did little to earn any.

    Exactly, in my book he earned his respect through his work.

    From what I've seen from his in the last couple of years he's earned my respect.

    He does great work uncovering and exposing scams. It's definitely a tragedy.

    How about just some common decency? A family just lost someone at a very young age.

    He collapsed while on a midnight walk. An autopsy will be performed. But died from natural causes. :confused:

    Call me skeptical, but I bet most of you weren't respectful of every person's death when you heard about it.
