RIP, Robert Byrd

He died overnight at the age of 92. Far too complicated a legacy to discuss here, but let's just say this: instead of a hearse, his funeral procession ought to include a road grader, a backhoe and a cement truck.

Another hit in the GOM Dead Pool!

Talking Points Memo ran the speech that Byrd gave on the eve of the Iraq Invasion in 2003, and I found it very emotionally affecting. Full of courageousness in a time of great cowardice.
