Don’t let the coffin door hit you on the ass on your way out.

Jesse Helms, known as “Senator No”, is dead.

Bye bye, bigot. I won’t miss you. We’re going to be another generation cleaning up the toxic swill you left behind in the body politic.

    Good freakin’ riddance to bad rubbish. One of the many reasons I’m an atheist is that I don’t believe in a god who would let that hateful scumbag live to a ripe old age while Matthew Shepherd got tied to a fence and beaten to death at 21.

    • I’ve long since disabused myself of the notion that we live in a just universe… but then, physics is not just or unjust, it just is.

    Should have been sooner. But here’s to an end to him.

    On second thought, do let the door hit you on the way out.

    I heard the news on NPR in the morning, and my first thought was, “Good riddance!”

    His entire existence was based on hating others. Can you imagine what a miserable life that must have been? One can only hope he’s sitting in his own version of hell, surrounded by all the people he was most afraid of.

    In the meantime, for the rest of us, living well is clearly the best revenge.

    • I hope he’s not in hell. That would mean there’s an afterlife, and I hate being wrong. :)

      If there is, one assumes his flatmate is Falwell.

        Chuckle.
        (Paraphrased memory:
        “He hoped and prayed that there wasn’t an afterlife; he’d be awfully embarrassed meeting everybody. Then he realized this was a contradiction, and merely hoped that there wasn’t an afterlife…”)

        No, his flatmates will be an endless parade of gay men who died of AIDS and African-American lesbians on temporary leave from heaven – each will have a week-long stint tormenting Jesse, then go back up.

        I don’t believe in an afterlife, though, so I’ll just settle for the bastard rotting.

    Have you heard the tune by “MC Hawking”?
