A lot of celebrities have died lately, but I think the ones dearest to my heart have been Andrew Breitbart and Christopher Hitchens.

Will never forget the time spent sipping wine in the California hills with the one and only Andrew Breitbart. Still can't believe he's gone.

Predictably, haters wasted no time in taking to the Twitter waves to posthumously bash Breitbart.
Andrew Breitbart my grandmother always said never speak ill of the dead. Breitbart changed the rules. May he rot in Hell. Evil to the core
