The conservative movement lost a huge figure when Andrew Breitbart died earlier this month.
It was a blow to the movement, but also to the millions of Americans who admired Andrew and took his loss personally. It's particularly difficult because he leaves behind a wife and four young children. Our hearts go out to them.
Having been a fan of Andrew's for several years now and a regular reader of his "Big" sites, my admiration continues to grow, even after his death. He left behind a legacy of fearlessness in getting at the truth, a willingness to put himself out there and take the hatred and threats of the loony left. Many of us have been inspired to do the same, to not back down to those that would bully us, to stand up to those who abuse others, and mostly, to get at, to expose, and to face the truth. Because, as the Bible says, "The truth shall set you free."
We are Breitbart, and we're not going away anytime soon.
Here at Essex & Orange we honor Andrew by providing in our "Freebies" section, a free downloadable poster of "Truth." We have no plans to produce or sell any items with his image, however, BigFurHat at iOwnTheWorld.com has designed and is selling some items the proceeds of which will be going to the Breitbart family. Click on the link on the sidebar and take advantage of this opportunity to help his family, and to let everyone know that "Breitbart is Here."
Welcome to Essex & Orange 1773, the "Alternative" Campaign Headquarters.
We've got a tough year ahead but no need to be downhearted. We're not giving up and neither should you.
So, since our favorite candidate is out for now, and we can't stomach throwing our support elsewhere just yet, we've decided to make E & O the place to go for some good old fashioned political fun.
No dirty tricks here, but also no sacred cows. We've decided that since we can't join 'em, we can mock 'em. Besides we can all use a chuckle now and then, so why not have some fun with this campaign season?
We're not really sure what form this will take, but it's bound to be interesting.
Keep checking back to see what we're up to. We have a lot of ideas we'll be unveiling, as well as our "Goat Pundits" who will be opining on events as they transpire. They've got a lot of time to think, hanging out as they do, so they're bound to have great insights into current events.
So, come along for the ride, have a few laughs, get in a few digs, and heck, who knows, maybe we'll sell out all that Sarah swag we have in our shop when she decides to get back in the race. (Notice, I said "when". . . from my keyboard to God's ears!)
