Well he was a Marine and served in the Pacific in WWII. Other than that the axiom holds true: "If you can't say anything nice......"

“If you can’t say anything nice......”

Hope he gets a chance to reunite with his old colleague Ted Kennedy(D-HELL)...

Pet peeve of mine, sorry. You just said it. So don't be a lib about it, and hide.

He won’t go to hell because he served as a Marine in the Pacific in WWII. When he gets to heaven a few Marines might ask him if he had any idea that the political party he belonged to was ultimately going to bring the kind of despots to power that he risked his life to help defeat.

Jack Brooks chaired the committee investigating the Waco disaster. On one occasion the mics were still open when Brooks got up from the session and I overheard him say; If it had been up to me I would have put a missile in that tower.

I am sure all his decisions were fair minded. Keep in mind that Murtha was a marine too.

My old Washington Insider friend knew Brooks well. WI said, “Brooks got defeated in 1994 because he was never sober after 9 AM”.

I heard the obit on the radio. Nary a mention of Steve Stockman’s heroic, underfunded, grass roots campaign that blew Brooks out of office after 42 years. Stockman set up a printing plant in his backyard for signs, had over 2000 volunteers (mostly home school moms with their kids), and put Poll Watchers in dozens of precincts that had never seen a Republican ever.

Brooks was a corrupt, old school pol. Clinton’s gun ban was the issue that made a lot of blue collar dims turn against Jack.
