The lead on two TV networks was that he had waxed somewhat sarcastic on the subject of Sen. Jesse Helms. Anyone who can limit his reaction to Helms to mild sarcasm deserves the Nobel Peace Prize. That poisonous old hate sow, suckling all the little hate pigs - if ignorance is bliss, that man must be ecstatic (My own civility has distinct limits).
Of all the descriptions of Jesse Helms, ever, "poisonous old hate sow, suckling all the little hate pigs" has to be one of the best.
