Rest in Peace: William F. Buckley Jr.

I know this is a couple days late, but I just wanted to take some time and honor the great conservative thinker, William F. Buckley Jr.

Since 1955, Buckley has been writing newspaper columns and hosting talk shows.

He had a sense of humor too.  In 1965 when he ran for Mayor of New York City under the Conservative party (since any Republican who gets elected there isn’t a true conservative.  i.e. Giuliani), he was asked what he would do if he won.  His response was, “Demand a recount.”

Above all, he was always civilized on his talk shows (hehe – not my strong point).

So, Mr. Buckley, God bless you and may you rest in peace.

Done eulogizing,

Ranting Republican
