This charming man

I don't usually pay much attention to the obituaries, but this one, of Senator Jesse Helms, was fascinating. Plus more from the Guardian online. It's a shame he didn't live long enough to see Obama elected.

Jesse Helms maybe the liberal's nemisis but he was a hugely popular Senator from his own state. I lived in New York in 1989/90 and when liberal newspapers like the New York Times joined in the snide remarks. Kerry, one thing that may get you writing nice things about John McCain is that Obama smokes.

"ABC News' Sunlen Miller Reports: Senator Barack Obama told reporters in St. Louis today that he has fallen off the wagon and smoked cigarettes in the last few months."

Well that's made it clear where you're coming from.
