Generally I agree with you.

Still, I consider every death a loss, even those of our enemies. Before anyone flames me, I think I have a good reason for this: once dead, a person cannot be redeemed.

But then, this isn’t about morals or philosophical nonsense. This is about the passing of Robert Byrd, proud icon of the liberal ideal.

To whom will they turn next?

"To whom will they turn next?"

There are two things that Byrd did that were at least outwardly subjective:

1) He always spoke on the Floor with a copy of the U.S. Constitution in his pocket.

2) He was a pretty eloquent speaker up to the last few years, when his age was dragging him into senility.

When the Health Care Vote was cast, he reminded everyone of "Weekend at Bernie's", when they needed EVERY Democrat vote to count.

His death is a loss to his family, but no loss to the Country that he helped destroy.

I'm sorry, but in this country today, these people deserve NO respect, nor sympathy.

Look for another "Progressive" to be moved on up, as head of the Peoples' Socialist Party.
