Former NC Senator Jesse Helms died early today at the age of 86. For many, the old coot, who served 30 years in the Senate, came to define modern conservatism as inclusive of people other than northeastern Buckley types. If that's true, then many modern conservatives are racist, bigoted, misogynistic, homophobic, xenophobic, marble-mouthed, rednecked assholes.
Hmm, maybe they were right.
Watch for the mainstream media to lionize him for the next few days. Pathetic.
