Robert Byrd Dies

West Virginia Senator Robert Byrd is dead.  In the spirit of the Teddy Kennedy rule, I will try not to speak ill of the dead.  I will only state that while the stories of his death will invariably mention his time as a KKK member and a leader of the anti-Civil Rights movement on the Hill, his place in the Democratic Party virtually assures that these aspects of his political life will get the whitewash--something Jesse Helms never got.

I'm sure Sam Ervin, John Stennis and Lester Maddox are there to greet him...wherever he is.
