Lee Edwards posts on Human Events this tribute:
He had only to stand before a microphone to bring smiles to the faces of an expectant conservative audience. Would he report the latest grab for power from the Land of Leviathan-Washington, D.C.? Would it be an ironic remark about the current liberal hero-Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, Clinton, Obama? Or would it be a Wildian reflection on the dependability of conservatives when they come to power?
"The trouble with conservatives," he once observed, "is that too many of them come to Washington thinking they are going to drain the swamp, only to discover that Washington is a hot tub.".........................
