“Quite an American life”

From this link....

Robert Byrd’s death: The end of pork barrel politics?

If something was built with federal dollars in the state of West Virginia in the last half century, there is a good chance that Byrd helped get the funding — more than $3.3 billion over his career.

His voters should be ashamed of themselves.

But then come the bad things. In Raleigh County, W.V., he organized a 150-member klavern of the Ku Klux Klan.

*****************************************************

One sentence Mr. Barone? You can only muster one sentence for this great crime? It’s not as though the Klan had a grip on local life in Raleigh County WV and the young and ambitious Byrd HAD to join to do anything at all with his life. No. That was not the case AT ALL! Robert Byrd brought the Klan to his county. He organized the klavern and recruited all it’s charter members! He foisted the evil and reprehensible KKK on the people of the county, it was NOT foisted upon him!

Robert C. Byrd ... served longer than all the rest

No way. He did not serve longer than "all the rest." That would have put him in the Senate for 20,000 years at least. Even Robert Byrd was not that old. I believed he did serve longer than any of the rest, though. Anyone who doesn't see an important difference there is an illustration of the utter uselessness of the public schools for teaching literacy.

That old man gave me the creeps and I for one am glad I don’t have to see him anymore.

Haven’t they buried that rat bas*ard yet? Glorifying this repugnant pig of a man is appalling.

In the end, Robert Byrd will go down in history as one of the greatest US Senators, along with Clay, Calhoun, Webster, LaFollette, Taft, and Dole.

"He insissted the legislative branch was co-equal with the executive."

Oooo, this does not sit well with the Emperor Obama and his sex kitten, Elena Kagan.

It’s a sorry day when Townhall uses the term “All American” to describe the likes of Robert Byrd.
