This idiot was a blight to Alaska and to the country, as was/is sarah falin. It is unfortunate he died in this manner, but his ever-evident vituperative spleen, probable corruption and toxic policies will NOT be missed.

I'm a proud Republican. I appreciate many of the positions of the Democrat party too, but being fiscally conservative and strong on defense are the two most important factors for me. That said, while I think Ted Stevens did great things for AK, I think him and many like him are the most responsible for America's problems today. His notorious wielding of Senate power invoked so much ire, federal prosecutors committed misconduct in their overzealous prosecution, where charges were dropped but he was ousted from office anyway. It's easy for me to say, but these guys should run for office to serve America, not enrich themselves and their familes. It's so bad we eleected a crook with no experience to the Presidency.

Bush 43 had at least demonstrated competence at an executive level prior to his election. He was an extremely popular and effective Governor of a large state. Obama has never demonstrated an ability to do anything except read the telepromptings of a diabolical campaign staff who excelled at demonizing his opponents for him. He's the worst President of the century by far, and his only term is half over.

He's killed more than that. He's emboldened iran, when he should have denounced their brutal crackdown. He's abandoned Israel, and encouraged it's enemies. Bush killed only terrorists, you American hating traitor scum.

I cannot believe this witless gibberish and the usual, predictable assaults on the opponents' patriotism. You repub neo-con scum are really flat-headed in just about every aspect. I'm not actually convinced you are more than jumped up Bonobo apes actually. Bush/cheney, by reckoning of most presidential historians, will certainly be regarded in the deepest contempt and as true villains. They should be awaiting their respective turns at that noose so effectively used on Saddam! Total war criminals and boundlessly corrupt thugs on truly breathtaking scale! Your heroes are crooks and despots and saps. If you actually could read and not drool all over your knuckles dragging behind you in the dust you might understand history a tad better. I'm ashamed to have to share this fine country with flat-earther, racist, uneducated troglodytes and inbred goobers such as yourself, pathetic and flatulent and clueless wretch that you most certainly are! Get a life ...loser:)

Time for your meds psycho. Bush is already remembered as being a far greater President than Obama. What scum like you don't understand, is that when you say Bush murdered those people you are also implicating the finest military with the strictest rules of engagement of war crimes. If a civilian is used as a human shield by the enemy, they killed the civilian, not us. these cowards hide in schools, mosques (in NYC) and hospitals. They use actual torture, and behead their victims on video. You better go home to mommy, we need some adults around here.

Predictable sqwaking points revisionist history ala Glen Beck and Limpballs express. Bush is hardly rememebered in such glowing terms except by you witless 22%rs on the fringe whitie-rightie extreme. The cowards were your criminal thugs in the last profligate and illegitimate mis-administration! More breaches of constitutional law in U.S. history and the exploitative pimping of American blood (troops) all for that sweet Iragi crude oil. Never has the level of cummulative criminality even approached that of the vile bush/cheney/ashcroft/rummy cabal of miscreants and sociopathic misfits. The world stood in unified contempt of this dangerous U.S. regime! It will take generations to undo the massive harm inflicted by these cretins, you thrice stupid dolt! MOST of what Obama is attempting to rectify and correct ARE THE ILLEGAL BLUNDERS, MISSTEPS AND DELIBERATELY ILLICIT TACTICS AND POLICIES OF bush/cheney, et al, ad nauseum. More innocent blood and outright dark chicanery perpetrated by these disgraceful and unlawful louts than any other administration within the last 100 years at least you witless moron! Learn to see beyond your neo-CON blinders you duped, rightie-whitie trog!

I pity uniformed and deluled America haters like you. You obviously know squat about history. If we wanted Iraq's oil for ouerselves, they'd be the 63rd state behind Japan, Germany, S Korea and the many other countries Republicans have liberated in spite of the surrendercrats. Freedom isn't free, and Jefferson didn't make us independent by writing the Declaration.

Those of us with brains...that excludes your despicable sort of vermin...collectively want to forget bush's illegitimate faux-presidency. About the only sensible memorial for its dramatic series of mistakes, blunders and innumerable illegalities might be the proposed SF George W. Bush Sewage Plant as a most fitting monument to all the Bull $hit of the former commander-in-thief's dubious achievements: "a mouldering patch of human effluent."

These pests were incompetent hacks, unlawful and arrogant sociopaths who nearly destroyed America and our place in the world community. They paraded unlawful detentions and tortures, they murdered numberless innocents, they violated dozens of well established laws and precedents, they fumbled Katrina and its aftermath completely and this foul legacy persists to this day, they lied and led us into an ill conceived war in Iraq and severely miscalculated Afghanistan and its escalating turbulence, and of course, they funneled every asset and monetary advantage to uppermost 1% of the ultra-rich...typical repub Orwellian doublespeak and chicanery and subterfuge. All the while feeding numb-nut squids like you passionate "Gawd, Guns and Gays" rhetoric to assure your blathering and pie-eyed slavish support....pathetic slope heads that you and your ilk most certainly are.

Wooden headed baby-bush and his darkly evil and cowardly sidekick, five deferment chicken-$hit-cheney (who cries and mews with each pang of guilt manifested in his failing, black little heart these days) were venal, small minded, shallow, ignorant and arrogant men given unfettered power and illicit authority and they did incompetent, stupid, selfish and boundlessly evil things with it. "Ultimate power ultimately corrupts" is a caveat boldly evidenced in this dire case!

Only in forgiving and forgetful America would such wretched cowards and criminal rogues never have to pay the ultimate price for their many serious and often capital crimes. You mental midgets on the racist, whities rightie fringe, forever denying empirical reality, wistfully reenacting YOUR jaundiced view of the Civil War, denying equality for all unless they are lock step with your towering ignorance and bigotry, and admiring the likes of flatulent gas bags and indolent lard asses such as clueless g. beck and porky r. limpballs, among other such turds, are true tragedies. You lack complex thought and deductive reasoning capacity, arrogant in your dishonesty and pathetic stupidity. I have belts with higher reasoning capabilities than you apparently possess you sad little zealot. I pity you more than despise you...and you ARE certainly despicable in your slanted, incendiary and blathering crass mindlessness.

Try again to master third grade in that squalid, decrepit trailer park where you must certainly reside with your equally inbred sister. Take a stab at elementary science (once you master simple reading and syntax; if you ever do)and set aside all that porno and the sticky bible you probably pound your empty skull with frequently when annoying REALITY comes knocking! Lastly... Please promise us you WON'T reproduce!:)

Have a nice day!

Unfortunately...these are only the briefest of outlines regarding the criminality of the last repub-rogue-regime that nearly toppled America. Lard asses and indolent saps, forever glued to Fox crap dispensers are lobotomized cretins incapable of deductive reason and historical perspective; "those who fail to learn the lessons of the past are assured of repeating them" yet another axiom that applies to this cabal of crooks that insidiously infested the "whitie" house for eight long, dismal and horrific years of infamy. Most world leaders and objective historians award bush/cheney nearly abominable marks. They were pathetic failures and partisan hacks at best, evil war profiteers and blatant criminals at worst.

Your deceased Alaskan Senator was a tangential, ancillary and suspected participant in these dark proceedings by more than one source. He was a part of the problem(s), in essence.

You're not a very bright boy so I know I'm wasting my time "throwing pearls to the swine", so to speak. You are, unfortunately for yourself and by extension...the rest of us who must interact with Neanderthals like you, duped and brainwashed and full of your puffed up hubris, like all small and venal men. More's the pity. You've drank way too much of that neo-con cool aid and it's rotted what little brains you might once have possessed. "And so it goes" to recall K.V. Sinclair Lewis also said: "When fascism comes to America it will be carrying the bible and wrapped in the flag." Truth.

This thread is toxic, I'm off to more sublime and informed pastures...one can only endure the sewer for so long, at the end of the proverbial day:)

Have a nice forever...good luck with third grade on your umpteenth attempt!:)
