FOXNews is reporting that former NC Senator Jesse Helms died early this morning at age 86.
Senator Helms was a lightning rod during his time in the US Senate because of his highly conservative stance on many issues. Opponents tagged him as "Senator No" because of his frequent "Nays" on many votes. Personally, I sort of thought of him as Senator Hell No!, as in "Hell no, you ain't gonna destroy this country if I can help it!" There's something sort of symbolic about his death on July 4th, the "birthday" of the United States.
I suspect that the likes of the Democrap Underground are even now celebrating his death.
