Jesse Helms - dead at last

It's truly unfair that we all have to die, but I don't feel that way about Jesse Helms. It was time for his ideas and his politics to go a long, long time ago. Helms, the patron saint of the Tobacco pushers, the enemy of nuclear test ban treaties, and a motive force in moving the American Center as far right as any Third World Generalissimo has ever done, has died and gone to hell.

Race baiter, bigot and blowhard: he stood against everything I have been proud of in America. We would have been better off had he never been born and I will fly the flag more proudly today because he is finally dead.

I'm having a hard time trying to forgive Helms. I read the syrupy, sappy, and completed untrue tribute Bush paid to Helms today, and I almost barfed.

Almost everything Bush says makes me queasy.
