Conservative pundit Ann Coulter says the untimely passing of Andrew Breitbart compares to the assassination of famed musician John Lennon.

In an interview with The Daily Caller, Coulter asserted that there was no telling what Breitbart could accomplished if he had not died suddenly last week at the age of 43.

“He did so much for the conservative movement,” she explained. “Who knows what else he could have done. It’s like John Lennon dying. What other music might he have produced?”

“Though he did leave us with a lot of music and so did Andrew Breitbart, from the Drudge Report and I actually think The Huffington Post does a lot of good for our side because we get to see what lunatics have to say. … So, I do think it’s a huge loss but he left us with a lot.”

Following Lennon’s 1980 murder, hundreds of thousands convened across the world for a silent vigil (PDF), including 225,000 in New York City’s Central Park.
