I remember Byrd giving some speech or another castigating George W. Bush during the build up to the War in Iraq, and thinking "Oh dear god, why is he in office?" The nicest thing that I can say about his death is that he's going to make life in Congress much easier with his passing.

Robert C. Byrd dead
If you want to see what's wrong with this country, look no farther than Robert C. Byrd, Democrat, Grand Kleagle of the KKK, first elected to Congress in the 1950's. The man had been in power for far too long and was completely drunk on it. There was no money he wouldn't spend for his self promotion (the "Robert C. Byrd Memorial Highway, the Robert C. Byrd bridge, etc). And the people of West Virginia kept electing him.
