Local "progressive" empathy on display

Regarding the death of former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens.

Here's perpetual local hatemonger dimwitty:

anyone know whose plane he was riding in? I think it was a corporate jet for someone. How fitting I guess (Link)

I saw someone at another site say he wouldn’t have died if he had been in jail…sorta true. But he also wouldn’t have died if he hadn’t sold his soul to corporate interests and thought that he deserved to live like a king. I’ll be the first to say it…I could care less about him and could care less that he’s gone. He died riding a corporate jet…irony at it’s best. (Link)

we all mourn in different ways I guess. Me…I mourn for those I feel are worthy of it. The rest, especially the ones that helped wreck my country…not so much (Link)

Then there's delacrat:

If you want to mourn, be “a bit respectful” or acknowledge your “condolences to the family” of a right-wing republican crook, there are crooked, right-wing republican websites that are more appropriate for such sentiments. (Link)

And do you really think his family gives a f___ about your condolences? (Link)

And finally, anonone:

I’ll care as much about Stevens as he did about all the families and children he killed in the needless and stupid wars that he supported. May he rest in anguish. (Link)

Kudos to those over there (like MJ, notably) who called out these putzes on their comments.

Did you catch the comments and poll question concerning Dick Cheney?

Classless group of people.

Stay Klassy, libs! He wasn't riding in a corporate jet, he was riding in a 1957 float plane.
