Jesse Helms Dies; Left Shows Class and Restraint
Jesse Helms has died at 86. TBogg puts aside the partisanship:
Since we are supposed to say something nice about the dead I’ll just say that I feel sorry for his family and understand the grief that they must feel, fully aware that Jesse is in hell today … most likely getting [deleted by Patterico]ed in the ass by Roy Cohn.”
His commenters show similar class. Examples: “I look forward to his funeral, because then I will know where to go to piss on his grave.” Also: “Today, God blessed America.”
Note well: it is not support of the man or his views to note what assholes some leftists are when someone they don’t like dies.
P.S. I firmly believe “TBogg” wouldn’t be this happy if the dead man were Osama bin Laden, instead of Jesse Helms.
Of course, if I’m wrong, it’s easily proven. All you need to do is dig up all his old posts exulting over the deaths of important terrorists.
Have fun trying to find those. I’ll be waiting for them, over here with the chirping crickets.
UPDATE: Captain Ed quotes a guy responding to notorious asshole Ken Layne by noting that Helms’s most racist comments (including some cited by TBogg) were made while he was a Democrat.
