From the AP: "Former Rep. Henry Hyde, the Illinois Republican who steered the impeachment proceedings against President Clinton and championed government restrictions on the funding of abortions, died Thursday. He was 83."

While his family has my condolences, I must respectfully point out that this "powerful defender of life" in reality made life extremely difficult for low-income women facing unintended pregnancies for the past 30 years. Here's hoping that Congress will soon start acting in a more progressive manner, both pre- and post-Election 2008.

I hope so too, Jen. I hope so too.

I guess he and Herry Falwell are rosting hot dogs and marshmellows together . . . wherever they are.

He will be remembered for a petty sexual witch hunt. Good bye jeckyll.
