Never Speak Ill of the Dead

Rather, let them speak for themselves.

James J. Kilpatrick, Conservative Voice in Print and on TV, Dies at 89:

“Conservatives believe that a civilized society demands orders and classes, that men are not inherently equal, that change and reform are not identical, that in a free society men are children of God and not wards of the state...” he wrote.

Read the entire obituary?

As if I might find him interesting now, when he incessantly annoyed and/or bored me in life?

The snideness and condescension he always treated Dr. King with, to his face in public, is enough for me to blow a streamer in honor of this day.

As soon as I read that quote in his obit yesterday, I knew Rising Hedge would have it. Thank you, Res.

Kilpatrick's a neocon John the Baptist, preparing the way in hell for Cheney, the guys from PNAC and all the rest.

Wow. I missed his heyday. Those quotations are damning. The only difference now is that most conservatives don't say them out loud.

The paper said he died of "heart failure..."

Guess they found out the one he had was small and hard. Made of stone, apparently.
