or on drugs?\
He really looks like a bloated, unkempt mess.
I''ve thought that many times. Looks and acts like an old drunk with a bad case of arrested development and the "hey look at meeees!"

I''d like a more thorough telling of Andrew''s story. For instance, he''s closely allied with Drudge. No one ever talks about that.\
He just sort of appeared on the national landscape. It''s a serious failing of the media that he gets to just appear on the national stage with no investigation of his background, motives, credentials, or connections.
One word - infotainment
If I were in charge, any media reference to Andrew Brietbart would be contractually required to read "noted closeted alcoholic pathological liar Andrew Breitbart".
I find him bloated hot and would do nasty things to his hole.
I find him hot.
umm.... i think the word you are grappling for, OP is "unkept." It''s like a house that is all dirty and messy and smelly and gross. *geebszh*
Democrats are alcoholics, darling. Republicans demurely forge prescriptions for Oxycontin.
This thread reeks of jealosy
Breitbart is a Tom Bergeron wannabe who marketed himself to the biggest money stream available.\
Without corporate sponsorship, he''d be a youtube personality - nothing more.
I think ''unkempt'' is a better choice than ''unkept'', actually.

Breitbart was behind The Drudge Report, and The Huffington Post. He is incredibly powerful, and he would never be a "Youtube personality". I don''t know what took him so long to put himself out into the public sphere.
So he was an alcoholic?
I think this was my thread.
Must troll-dar myself.
I was saying this all along.
He looked like a typical cokehead and boozer - almost like you could smell it on him. I wouldn't be surprised if the coke killed him.
I'm not familiar with the L.A. area. Is it common for people to be out for a walk at midnight like he was? It's not like he lived in an apartment and had no yard to let a dog out into. Why was he out walking?
Probably doing drugs or secretly drinking away from the kids. It's what addicts do. Like hide airplane bottles of vodka in the toilet tank.
He may have just arrived back home. According to an article on Drudge, to which I will not link, he was at a bar drinking until about 50 minutes before he was found collapsed on the ground.
Alcohol + cocaine.
Wonder if they'll hide it.
Hell, let's just make shit up--it worked for Breitbart: he was "walking in his neighborhood" at around midnight because he had just scored drugs, and was given a fatal "hot shot".
[quote]he was at a bar drinking until about 50 minutes before he was found collapsed on the ground.
Last year he was reported to have a heart condition and he didn't stop drinking? That in and of itself is pretty good indication of an alcohol problem. He really didn't need cocaine thrown in the mix. Years of chronic alcohol abuse is enough to kill men of that age.
ooh r1 is meeee.
Airplane bottle? He's a piker!
DRINKING AT A BAR
AT HOME: A WIFE WITH FOUR KIDS
He'd been drinking in a bar with a young male escort, was seen doing hits of cocaine in the bathroom, got behind the wheel of the car drunk and high, was seen driving east in a westbound lane, bought heroin from a black hooker named Beverly Hylls, drove home and collapsed in the pavement near his home, where it was noted that he shat his pants in his last moments on this earth.
After the CPAC OWS meltdown he went on Cenk's show to explain his behavior and it was a hot mess. He looked like he hadn't bathed or changed his clothes in weeks, his hair was all over the place as was his mind.
The craziest thing is that he opened his CPAC address by telling the audience that he had promised to shower before he got there but it didn't work out. Then he babbled. made some weird comments about pre-marital sex, by the time it was over half the audience had left.
I'm pretty disgusted, but apparently if you were wealthy and powerful enough he was lovable. Seeing Arianna Huffington, Stephen Weber and Lawrence O'Donnell sing his hosannas is frankly bewildering to those of us who bore the brunt of Breitbart's poison.
Now I don't feel so bad about my 2-glass-a-night wine consumption.
Could someone explain how an intelligent and educated person could support the Republican party and corporate greed? Maybe he simply had no soul...except I didn't know people like that, needed drugs and booze.
ww for R29!
Even Worst. He was a JEW
[quote]He really looks like a bloated, unkempt mess.
I'm sure that was some prissy guy...bloated is their favorite word.
"made some weird comments about pre-marital sex"
In favor or against?
It's a comment on the societ and times we live in that this bloated, poorly-educated mess became a media star.
he was Irish. He was adopted as an infant by a Jewish couple. His bio fatehr was listed as a "folk singer" on his birth certificate.
Who was an Irish folk singer in the LA area in 1969?
He was married to actor Orson Bean's daughter and he grew up in LA, so this explains his Hollywood connections.
Judging from all the sad, loser posts on this board, probably not.
R42, the "bloated, poorly-educated mess" was instrumental in launching the Huffington Post, worked on the Drudge Report, and then launched several highly-trafficked websites under his own moniker.
Like it or not, the man was a new media star.
Well he dead now, ain't he?

"say it in 17 words"
Andrew Breitbart, angry rightwing alcoholic?
Was Andrew Breitbart perhaps a closet alcoholic or maybe out in the open wit his friends even? I mean why would a grown man with 4 kids and a lovely wife stop for a DRINK at 10 pm when you shoulda been home with wife and kids? And he was not meeting anyone there either. Sounds like he had a problem with alcohol and maybe other things, like drugs, if this was his MO. I plan to pursue this sidebar on a national level. AB died from heart attack sure, he had hearts problems. But did his anger and hatred and lifestyle of ME ME ME create the perfect story for his early departure from this mortal coil?
''Andrew Breitbart Talked Politics in L.A. Bar an Hour Before Dying'' (Exclusive)
2:33 PM PST 3/1/2012
by Matthew Belloni
Marketing executive Arthur Sando tells THR about his lengthy debate with the conservative activist at The Brentwood; they said goodbye around 11:30 p.m., 50 minutes before Breitbart was pronounced dead.
Andrew Breitbart spent his final hours much like he lived most of his life: passionately talking politics.
An Eyewitness Speaks Out About Andrew Breitbart’s Death Scene.
It was just after midnight when Christopher Lasseter was walking his little dog in Brentwood. He watched a man he now knows to be Andrew Breitbart crossing Barrington from The Brentwood.
Beritbart was walking without apparent distress in the direction of the Starbucks across the well-lit street. Once Breitbart stepped up on the curb, as Lasseter put it, “He fell hard like a sack of Potatoes.”
A man unknown to Lasseter called 911. The 911 operator told them to begin chest compressions on Beritbart until the police and paramedics arrived.
The very top photo shows where Breitbart died on his back with his head close to the lamp post on the left and his feet under the newspaper vending machine to the right.
Lasseter described Breitbart’s skin color as bright red. BRIGHT RED IS NOT HEART ATTACK COLORS, HEART ATTACK IS BLUE. THIS WAS RED. HE WAS ON DRUGS. A BEAST
We will be waiting with bated breath for the Medical Examiner's and the Toxicology Reports to know exactly what cut a young man's life short.

1969? Adopted son of an unknown folk-singer in LA?
"He changed his political views after experiencing an "epiphany" during the Clarence Thomas hearings, and later described himself as "a Reagan conservative" with libertarian sympathies."
He really was an idiot, and a big fucking racist.
Is Tulane University a top school?
I still find it hilarious that it took him 40 years to reach the public spotlight, and then he drops dead. He was such an attention whore. Taking to the podium at the Weiner press conference, was so fucking embarrassing.
Thank god we don't have to put up with another one of the likes of him anymore.
I hope Coulter, and Malkin drop dead, along with O'Reilly.
Spotted in Brentwood by a guy walking his dog, eh? Sound familiar? I think we'll find the answer to what killed Breitbart in the world of Fay Resnick.
