Senator Byrd passed away early this morning. He was the longest serving senator in history. A prime example of why term limits are necessary. He did bring the pork to his state, so I guess that is how he kept getting re-elected.
As a child you are taught not to say mean things about the dead, so I think I am going to keep this short and sweet. But, I will say this complicates the dems push to get through cap and trade, the Kagan nomination, and financial reform.
