Class Act

Some rightwing reactionary who put his own trademark imprint on the Republican Party died this week. DJ! wrote about him here:
[...] a toxic fabricator, a con man, and a dumpster-diver. He's a self-styled JackAss reporter; he's a balding, schlumpy and braying male version of Ann Coulter; a wannabe Christopher Hitchens without the creds. Yet his presence amongst the Limbaughs and O'Reillys serves a purpose; he makes them look like serious newsman in comparison with his own disgraceful method of gotcha! reporting.
Still applicable though in the past tense.

He engineered a malevolent hoax; this is what the target of his deliberate character assassination had to say about his death.
“The news of Mr. Breitbart’s death came as a surprise to me when I was informed of it this morning. My prayers go out to Mr. Breitbart’s family as they cope during this very difficult time.”
Shirley Sherrod is a class act, something Breitbart never was.
