Three Cheers for the Death of Jesse Helms (R-NC)

I didn't say it before. 

Some people say we shouldn't speak dead of puerile, fascistic, evil men like Jesse Helms.  I disagree.  What I don't think people should do is come up with new allegations against him.  I shouldn't say, now, that he sacrificed infants on an altar to hate, if that allegation were new, simply because he is in no position to defend himself by, for example, saying it was all for the greater good.
