If You Don't Have Something Nice to Say...
You might have noticed that I refrained from mentioning the death of Jesse Helms a few weeks back -- the reason being that I can't for the life of me find one good thing to say about the man and dancing on his grave is beneath even me.
Now, as if God himself were engaging in a little housecleaning down here, far-right icon and all-around bilious toad Bob Novak has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.
I honestly wouldn't wish that kind of suffering on anyone, not even an evil bastard like Novak. But to give you an idea of the kind of enmity he inspires among his many detractors -- quite a few of whom would be more than happy to publicly revel in his suffering -- the Huffington Post has chosen to disable the comment section on its story about Novak's illness.
They sure as hell didn't do that for Ted Kennedy.
