Byrd was a gravy train rider. His philosophy was dictated by what was necessary for him to stay in Washington. His fiscal restraint was dependent on who was in the White House. He didn't want to give any Republican president any money, and did what he could to heap mountains of money on Democrat presidents.RIP ANOTHER DEMONCRAT Former Sen. Harry F. Byrd Jr., the Democrat-turned-independent who began his career as a staunch segregationist and preached fiscal restraint in Washington long before it became fashionable, has died. He was 98.
Byrd’s son, Tom Byrd, is president and publisher of The Winchester Star, which first reported the death. Tom Byrd’s office confirmed that the former senator died Tuesday.
Good riddance. I hate racists, anyway.
Will he be getting a KKK burial?
