The inestimable Andrew Breitbart

When telling others about the death of Andrew Breitbart,  I surprisingly described him as one of the most important conservatives.  It hit me: as important as thinkers like George Will and the good doctor Krauthamer are, creating a space in the new media, a place in the culture, is much more important. "Politics is downstream from culture".

The Fluke 'controversy' is a a classic example of losing control of the narrative. Andrew where are you? How can you read things like this and not think of our dear, sweet prince:

"Conservatives need to reclaim some of the discourse by standing up to these crude thugs. If it’s not venturing too far into’s favored linguistic territory to say so, conservatism needs to grow a pair."
