So who will fill the void when a photo is needed to depict the face so often needed in certain posting situations.

Perhaps we will now enjoy a well deserved respite from her picture, and she will enjoy hearing truth instead of what usually came from her lips to us as “news” or journalism.

Sure the old broad was a liberal kook, but she said what ALL the rest of sack-less Mainstream Media never have the courage to say:

Crap. Now all the news shows will have her ugly mug on it and talking on and on about her “great reporting.”

This will be the latest in a series of headline stories used to keep Hussein's failed presidency on the back burner.

To: Lonesome in Massachussets

Was this the face that launched a thousand ships
And burnt the topless towers of Ilium?
Sweet Helen, make me immortal with a kiss.
Her lips suck forth my soul; see where it flies!—
Come, Helen, come, give me my soul again.
Here will I dwell, for Heaven is in these lips,
And all is dross that is not Helena.

“It’s not my habit to make jokes of the dead (I’m sure others will be happy to do so).

May God have mercy on her soul.”

Hmmn - where to begin.

What is appropriate when the deceased was a walking, talking joke?

As for the response of the Lord, perhaps there is truth to the rumor that there is not a bottle of eye bleach nor a wire brush to be bought anywhere in all of Hell?

If she was not saved, sadly there will be no mercy. Either you are saved or your are not. If not, there is only one place awaiting you.

“What excuses do Liberals make when they face God?”

I can’t answer the above question.

However:
What does a Liberal say when meeting God for the first time?

Answer: You are sitting in my seat.

We made a lot of fun at her expense over the years but she was a pioneer in her field and occasionally made a strong crack at the knees of Democrat presidents (not nearly as often as she did Republican ones).

As with all of us, her reward in the next life will be based on the life she led and what her faith in God was. May she find mercy.

Wow, I never knew that anti-American anti-Semitic Liberalism was fatal... Oh well, Helen, you seem to have had a good long run.

I couldn't resist. There was a time when she was nice looking, but being a Democrat made her ugly. :-)

Well, kind of sad. Most women in their younger years are normally, at least, attractive. This woman was a hag even 60 years ago. Too bad. RIP.

We are all God’s children, in the sense that he created each of us. But do you have any evidence that she saw herself as such? Any evidence that she wished to further His agenda?

Like Trotsky, she was at least an honest Bolshevik. Sadly, there are 71 more who need to join her to supply an Islamonazi with their quota of virgins.
