Mistah Byrd, he dead.

R.I.P. Robert Byrd, D-WV: Senator. Klansman. Democrat. Tax thief.

Here richly, with ridiculous display,
The Politician’s corpse was laid away.
While all of his acquaintance sneered and slanged
I wept: for I had longed to see him hanged.
-Hilaire Belloc

Thanks to mzmadmike for the heads-up, and the brief summary of Byrd's glorious career.
