Paul: Jesse Helms is Dead…

…good riddance!

I don’t care if it’s not nice. This guy was a total dick. In the Senate he tried to end government funding for HIV/AIDS research, painting the illness as a gay disease and that those who had it were only getting what they deserved. He was also a notorious racist and woman-hater. Seriously, I hope he suffered.

    One of the main things I hold against the Clintons is their using Dick Morris, who served in a similar capacity to Jesse Helms. Take it away, Wikipedia:

    “After the 1994 mid-term election where Republicans took control of both houses of the United States Congress and gained considerable power in the states, Clinton once again sought Morris’ help to prepare for the 1996 Presidential election. It was Morris who proposed a strategy that is now referred to as “triangulation,” where Clinton would appeal to a diverse group of voters by distancing himself from both the Democratic and Republican parties. Many perceived this as a move to the center right of the political spectrum, and it disappointed some who had hoped Clinton would pursue a more liberal policy.”
