Mistah Byrd, he dead.

R.I.P. Robert Byrd, D-WV: Senator. Klansman. Democrat. Tax thief.
But I guess the last one is redundant.


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.

What can I say? His brand of sanctimonious thievery really got up my nose.

Average IQ in the Senate should see a surge
Quite frankly, i think he was my least favorite senator.

Used to be you had to be dead before you got something named after you, or out of office at least. Not a problem with Byrd, he had 30 buildings named after himself. As everyone says he was the king of pork which i believe helps feed deficits. I cant see anything but positive things happening with him gone.

On happier thoughts preparing for convergence.

One of the worst in a bad lot, agreed.

Enjoy Convergence! It looks like this will be the biggest and best so far, and I'm sorry to be missing it.
