RIP, Senator

Former Senator Warren Rudman has died:
Former U.S. Sen. Warren Rudman, co-author of the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings deficit reduction act and a key backer of fellow Granite Stater David Souter’s being named to the U.S. Supreme Court, has died. He was 82 years old and died just before midnight at George Washington Hospital from complications from lymphoma.

He had been in declining health for some time.
Folks may remember him as a member of the Gramm–Rudman–Hollings Balanced Budget Act Troika. Rudman was one of the last sane Republicans, the type that don't really exist anymore -- at least on the national level. Godspeed, senator.


  1. Please let me know when it is R.I.P. for Cloakroom.
    A Day of True Celebration for all fair minded nice people.

  2. Enjoy the inauguration, and the next four years! By the way, how many sock puppets do you have? I count at least four.

  3. Smootches Cloaky
    Sock THIS puppet schmucko

    Blessed Thanksgiving to all right-minded people.
