In his honor we should name the Constitutional Amendment for Congressional Term Limits as the Robert C. Byrd Constitutional Powers Realignment Act

Only Democrats would allow a former Ku Klux Klan Grand Kleagle to keep his seat for so long....the Dems would riot if a GOP was a former Klan member

Of course...the Dems are aligned with the new Ku Klux Klan groups....La Raza, SEIU, Southern Poverty Law Center...and others. Sen. Byrd should feel at home...and he won’t have to worry about them “white ni**ers”

one of Limbaugh’s funniest bits was when he read two lists, one was stuff in Iraq that was named after Saddam Hussein, and one was stuff in West Virginia that was named after Robert C. Byrd. The Byrd list was more than twice as long.

It irks me when they call it "service".

If you go into the Army, or Navy, or Air Force, or Marines, etc., that's "service".

Going into Congress is no sacrifice - it's not "service", any more than a pig is "serving" when it's at the trough.

This is a sad day. No, it’s not because of who he is or what party he’s in, but that people are praising the pinnacle of the exact opposite of the citizen-legislator that the Founders intended.

Byrd, Thurmond, Kennedy . . .?

Who is actually making the legislative decisions?
Like the Dog walker in “In the Garden of Good and Evil”, keep electing ‘em to keep the gravy train going.

Term limits, term limits, term limits, term limits!
