Sen. Robert Byrd Dead at 92; Truly Eternal Filibuster Now Commences

Posted on | June 28, 2010 | 62 Comments

He just became the best kind of Democrat, joining the sainted ranks of those who can no longer demagogue and pander their way to power, who no longer tax honest people into poverty so that their less industrious neighbors can be bribed with “free” government giveaways, and about whom even Republicans feel compelled to say nice things.

American children not yet born will pay the debts incurred to build all those pork-barrel edifices that now must be renamed the Robert C. Byrd Memorial Wastewater Treatment Plant, etc.

UPDATE: Cassy Fiano gathers the reaction from the dextrous blogosphere.

    As Frank Zappa said “Politics is the entertainment branch of industry.” And Robert Byrd was a very long lived clown.

    I wonder why it is that so many who say, “Don’t speak ill of the dead” really mean, Don’t speak TRUTH of the dead.
