Breaking: Senator Robert C. Byrd (D) dead at 92

Democrat Senator Robert Byrd, AKA “Sheets”, died this morning in a Fairfax, VA hospital. There’s one less democrat in the senate—for a while.

West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin, a Democrat, will appoint a replacement for Byrd, leaving the seat in Democratic hands. — San Francisco Chronicle Online, June 28, 2010

However, Governor Manchin provided no time-line for choosing Byrd’s replacement. Byrd, a Kleagel, or recruiter, and a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, acquired the nickname, “Sheets” due to his membership in the Klan. Byrd is also the last surviving democrat in office who voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

As for me, he will not be missed. He retained his senate seat by being the senate’s most prolific user of bribes pork projects for his state of West Virginia.
