No, the Conservative Blogger Supreme was not murdered or poisoned by a vast left-wing conspiracy. He did not die of any scandalous drug overdose (prescription or otherwise). He barely even registered a blood alcohol level, and that was from the red wine he'd sipped just moments before collapsing on March 1, after striking up a conversation with a liberal-leaning marketing executive at a nearby L.A. bar. The final cause of death for the man who brought down ACORN and set off Weinergate (and who, we have since learned, had a history of heart problems) was listed as heart failure in the coroner's just-released autopsy report.
