Yeah, you got it! Just like the 50 year old photo of Helen that AP has been using!

I’ve oft wondered when someone’s going to trot out an example of a moderate Nazi to validate the unfounded premise that every group has its moderates and that moderates are “always” the majority.

RIP

You are so right. Amyone who is anti-Helms is no friend of mine.

I hadn’t known he was so sick... RIP, Mr. Broder.

So sad.

My father died the same way, albeit at a much younger age.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Broder.

Tim Russert and David Broder were the only two left-leaning news analysts with even a hint of integrity. Russert has been sorely missed and Broder will be as well.

That pretty well sums up my own views on the matter.

It is just about always sad to learn of the sudden passing of another person, as it reminds us of our common mortality. (On this point, I would make an exception for Osama bin Laden or Aymen al-Zawahiri. Or perhaps for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. But not for too many others.)

Even though I frequently disagreed with Broder, on matters of political philosophy, I did find him generally civil. And usually fair.

And that is no small accomplishment, in my opinion...

Rush wouldn’t be where he is today if he didn’t have more insight and class than most of the “journalists” out there.

You’re right about ridiculously out of date photos but Kathleen Parker is 59 this year, not 89.

59?!! No way!! Wow. Having seen her once on Spitzer and Spitzer Light, I must say those TV makeup guys certainly know their stuff!

Yes, I can understand sympathy for his family and acknowledgment of his accomplishments, but to memorialize an enemy of Conservatism is very troubling to me.

It is revealing at how Conservatism has fallen in recent years even on this Board.
