Republican bloggers are so kewl:
Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) has seen far better days, and is often little more than a warm body when he is helped into the Senate. Granted, lucidity and coherence is not a priority among Senate Democrats, but Byrd is an embarrassment even for a party that regular drafts the imaginary or dead to vote.
You’re mocking Dems for a lack of “lucidity and coherence“, and you can’t conjugate ‘to be’? “Granted, lucidity and coherence ARE not
a priority priorities among Senate Democrats…” Or manage an adverb like “regularly”? Funny. Yankee are not colucent.
Robert Byrd has been around a very long time, and his many decades of service have made West Virginia a wonderful state in which to manufacture methamphetamine or frame the locals for murder.
Here Yankee inserts a Bill Sparkman link. And now you’re thinking “…wait–didn’t that happen in…”…err, yup. That was in Kentucky. In fact, here’s the first line of his highlighted post: “Kentucky State Police Lt. David Jude says…..” Beeeyootiful.
But it’s time for Senator to do the right thing, and expire.
It isn’t too much to ask for Byrd to step off for that great klavern in the sky before the Senate vote that may force this nation to accept government-rationed health care. Even a nice coma would do.
Without his frail, Gollum-like body being wheeled into the Senate’s chambers to cast the deciding vote, the Senate cannot curse our children and grandchildren with crushing debt and rationed, substandard healthcare.
Byrd should die, or millions will get healthcare.
So plenty of people read the post and said “Hey Confederate Yankee–go die yourself.”
I’ve found the enraged responses of some of my detractors (primarily in the form of emails and comments) to be mildly amusing. By saying that they wish me to die for posting my preference for Byrd’s timely demise, they’ve exposed the fact that they are entirely comfortable with calling for someone’s death over politics.
They just lack the intellectual honesty to admit it.
Unlike YOU, he has principles.
