Will Not Be Missed

Fundamentally wrong-headed old coot Jesse Helms died yesterday.

Did the US a lot of damage, and history has shown him not only to be a racist and bigot in every sense, but completely wrong on just about every major position he held (just as an example, Fidel Castro was as bad or worse than Hitler according to ol' Jesse).

Certainly the worst thing North Carolina produced, with the possible exception of the mouth-breathing knuckle-draggers who voted for him even beyond his ability to fulfill the duties of his job.

I very, very rarely speak ill of the recently departed, but people like Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms were part of a generation of southerners that should all hurry up and die off. With any luck, their warped worldviews will die with them.
