I don't intend to disrespect the dead, but at least Baltimore can now get better leadership and a better representative.

Dear John Lewis, Maybe you were a good guy. I have heard some people say that. I have also heard some people, phenomenal people, really, really good people, who say that maybe you weren't as good as what everyone says you are. And I can't really say because I just knew you did some stuff that I don't really like. I really didn't appreciate it when you challenged me on my opinions of your district in Baltimore. I have more authority than you and you should have listened to me. But I'm not going to bear a grudge. Because I'm very, very intelligent. People are saying it all over, all over this great country of ours. Good luck, John Lewis, wherever it might be that you're going, Anonymous

I'm glad he's gone and burning in the depths of hell where his ilk belong.

This reminded me what a truly bad President Obama was. While Clinton and Bush talked about the man John Lewis was, Obama used Lewis’s death to trash the current administration. Very low class.
