Blogging Tory Civitatensis would like a moment or two of respectful silence:
Henry John Hyde, the man who led the Judicial Committee of the House of Representatives in its impeachement of President Bill Clinton, has passed away. Hyde was a tireless opponent of abortion and a formidable orator. One of my favourite lines of his was articulated in a speech to the House during the Clinton impeachment debates. In reference to the president braking the law, he said: “Is he one of us, or is a Sovereign?”
Fuck it ... moment's over.
