Senator Robert Byrd is hospitalized and “seriously ill.”
He would be the last official KKK leader to depart the Senate..
So what does this mean for the prospects for a filibuster of the so called “Financial Reform” bill? anyone know?
Too bad it didn’t happen during health care “reform”. Meow.
y’all behave now.
All politics aside: God’s blessings on him and his family in this time of need.
Once he gets better I’ll get back to criticizing his politics and his history as a Klansman.
When it’s time to go, it’s time to go. One less carbon footprint for Al Gore to worry about.
If he does go, as might be expected from a 92-year-old “seriously ill” patient, I wanna be in the room when The Almighty has a loooooooooooong talk with the old guy.
Do the Senate rules read that it takes sixty votes to bring cloture or forty-one to sustain it? smitty over a RSM reports that Scott Brown states he voted for a reform bill that had no taxes. The tax on banks that the Social Democrats like to call a fee was added in conference.
All class, guys, all class. (obviously I’m not talking about CW)
I have precisely zero use for Byrd’s policies myself, but I don’t doubt he has family & friends who would miss him. Let’s all hope and pray he gets better.
That said -no matter what your politics are- 51 years in one political position is more than enough for anyone.
I think this might be God’s way of hinting “retirement might not be a bad idea.”
Well, AP says that Robert KKK Byrd has retired. Permanently.
I’m biting my tongue like I did when Murtha died. At least for one day.
one day? Hypocrite. If you are a “normal’ American, he’s already out of your mind.
I would have felt bad for his friends and family if he were 29. For goodness sake, he’s 92. He had done enough damages to our country. He voted for the Obamacare bill in which the wise men had a say in “the quality of life” a patient was to enjoy before they decred whether he was worth saving. Don’t tell me it’s misinformation. They are installing more than 100 boards and commissions to decide our miserable fate. And look at how Oregon’s state run healthcare rank each illness. Under Obiecare, he would have checked out much soon.
ic, De mortuis nil nisi bonum.
Robert Byrd, rest in peace. For those who wish to throw stones, I cite George W. Bush’s example.
De mortuis nil nisi bonum.
(scratches head) Ok, Akatsukami, where are you going with that one? That Byrd didn’t live a quiet life?
“Of the dead, speak only good,” is that the correct translation?
I’ve always been taught that the truth is good.
Truth is good, but it is unseemly to criticize someone who is no longer capable of defending himself.
So I propose a toast: to the memory of Senator Byrd.
