Senator Robert Byrd dead at 92

Rest in peace, ye olde warrior. He was the only voice in the Senate questioning the Chimperor's march to war, and all too prescient when he called the war resolution "Bush's Gulf of Tonkin resolution" -- given that he'd voted for the original, he shoulda known. And he did.

  1. Yes he did Penguin. He wasn't perfect but he understood what is involved with war and that truth is needed and was absent in this case.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
