Sen. Robert Byrd makes final journey to the Senate

Sen. Robert Byrd has returned to the to the chamber where he served more than a half-century for one final visit. A hearse bearing the remains of the late West Virginia Democrat, who served in Congress longer than anyone else in the nation's history, arrived this morning in front of the long marble stairway leading to the Senate chamber.

Byrd's body will remain in the Senate chamber today for colleagues and the public to pay respects. The last time the Senate chamber served such a purpose was for North Dakota Republican William Langer in 1959, the year Byrd entered the Senate.

We're all human but this peckerwood was a disgrace to this country.... and his KKK face made me sick every time I saw it over the years...

Just my two cents...

Over Byrd's career, he brought home 3.3 bil in pork.

Considering all of the federal buildings and operations he moved to V.VA (I seem to recall some sort of FBI crime lab for one,) not to mention highway and bridge projects, that number seems awfully low.

Will he be allowed to vote today? He’s been voting from the grave for years.

There should be a white sheet over his casket.

Too bad the pointy white hat won’t fit in the casket.

“ I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side… Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

— Robert C. Byrd, refusing military service in a letter to (then) Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS), 1944
