The whitest man who ever lived, Jerry Falwell, is no more.
You can almost feel the air is sweeter this morning for the loss of this collosal cockhead. The man who blamed "pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians" for the September 11th attacks, amongst other foaming-at-the-mouth crap, shuffled off the mortal coil, alone, in his Lynchburg, Virginia office. He was 73.
Salon's take on Falwell's demise is here. Numerous other media outlets have been a little more glowing in their treatment, not wanting to speak ill of the dead and all. I, though, have this to say.
The world is potentially a better place without Falwell's hatemongering. What will rise in his place I can't possibly say, but with any luck it'll be a little less horrifying than Falwell himself.
