Regarding Andrew Breitbart’s death…
No, not every bad person is equatable to Hitler, but below (above?) Hitler, there are plenty of gradations of bad that are really, really bad. Hallmark doesn’t make a card that reads, “Congratulations, you’re not a Nazi!”
I found the gloating over bin Laden’s death distasteful, so something would be pretty fucked up with my moral compass if I didn’t feel more reservation over Breitbart’s death. By my own sense, the properly calibrated liberal response is a non-gleeful, sober assessment of Breitbart’s life mission—which won’t be terribly flattering, even sans hyperbole.
