We made the following snide comments:
His death at this moment reduces the Democratic majority in the Senate to 59 votes, thus making it mathematically possible to stop socialized health care until his successor is elected, which should take, oh, about six months.We never, in our fondest fantasies, ever dreamed that the door that hit him on the way out would open the way for stopping Obamacare flat.
Thank you, Senator, for your contribution this day to the continuation of American freedom.
Again, Senator, we AGAIN thank you for your lasting contribution to the continuation of American freedom.
And we rejoice in the victory with knowledge that there is much struggle yet to come.
