Jesse Helms, unrepentant bigot.

No mourning here.

    Helms was a turd that finally dropped off …but left a stink-and-linger residue behind him in the form of the noxious legislation he supported, as well as his long life full of overtly expressed bigotry. I’m with Hitchens and Balko on this one. Helms should be remembered, but only as a bad example of what to avoid while in the polling place. Beyond that, he has more value as fertilizer than as human being. The negatives he did in office more than canceled any private goodness in his life. We’re well rid of the sumbitch. Zaijian Jesse!
