The Double Standard, cont.

I haven't commented on the passing of West Virginia Democrat Senator Robert Byrd. I wouldn't have found very much kind to say, so I thought it best to keep my mouth shut. I did note, however, along with several others like Aaron Goldstein of The American Spectator, the difference in tone and content of the obituaries Byrd received as compared to those received seven years ago by South Carolina Republican Senator Strom Thurmond when he died. I'll let Goldstein make the case this time, but is anyone really surprised?
