HELEN CHENOWETH. Wow. I don't believe I've ever before seen an obituary of a congressperson that consisted mostly of mockery and insults. Next to Ron Paul, she was one of the best to serve in the modern U.S. House. Give her credit for being one of the few Revolutionaries of '94 who really was. And extra credit for being one of the rare honest politicians; she kept her promise to term-limit herself while most of her compatriots weaseled out of theirs.

Jim Bovard sent that sad link. He also blogs about his own little connection with Chenoweth.
