I Try Not To Speak Ill Of The Dead . . .

Or even to blog ill of the dead. But Tish Durkin has some questions about Robert Byrd’s legacy that need asking. And in response to the “too soon?” question, I say “no, not at all too soon.”

Related to the comments concerning whether Byrd, at the end, was truly up to his job, the person now third in line to the Presidency of the United States is 86 years old. Anyone else kind of worried about that? It’s fine and good to show respect for the elderly, but with all due respect to Daniel Inouye, does anybody really believe that he is up to the rigors of the Presidency, particularly considering that any scenario in which he becomes President will likely involve some kind of horrific calamity?
