Now tell me how you Really feel

The members of Democratic Underground are really letting their compassionate side show after the news of Chief Justice Rehnquist's death.

Now I wasn't foolish enough to think that anyone over there would actually be praising Rehnquist for his service to their country, and that's their right, but these posts just blew me away.

No matter what his political stance, a man has died leaving behind a grieving family. By all accounts a man that as Chief Justice, performed admirably and ensured that the decisions of the highest court in the US were only reached after a well structured debate in which everyone was able to present their line of reasoning.

Just compare this DU post about the Rehnquist's death (actually the least offensive of the three) to this Captain's Quarters post about Senate Minority Leader, Harry Reid's recent mini-stroke. Notice any difference?

I would just like to send my most heartfelt condolences out to the family and friends of Judge Rehnquist.
