Jesse Helms -- dead at last

By Capt. Fogg

It's truly unfair that we all have to die, but I don't feel that way about Jesse Helms. It was time for his ideas and his politics to go a long, long time ago. Helms, the patron saint of the tobacco pushers, the enemy of nuclear-test-ban treaties, and a motive force in moving the American Center as far right as any Third World generalissimo has ever done has died and gone to hell.

Race baiter, bigot, and blowhard, he stood against everything I have been proud of in America. We would have been better off had he never been born and I will fly the flag more proudly today because he is finally dead.
