Ding dong, the witch is dead
When Baroness Margaret Thatcher shuffled off her mortal coil, this song propelled to number 1 on the UK charts:
This had been planned for years, and was executed brilliantly. (It also put BBC Radio 1 in a pickle on its countdown show.)
Would that we in the country had planned for Roger Ailes' death. I would argue that he did more damage to his country than Thatcher did to hers.
I've stopped speaking well of the ill dead. Those who commit evil in their lives deserve nothing but opprobrium. Ailes cheapened and coarsened the Republic. He was the main driver in bringing about the toxic politics we have today. He is, in fact, Donald Trump's progenitor. Without Ailes and his network, this country's situation would be vastly different.
So, ding dong, the witch is dead. I won't cry tears for him, and I will celebrate his death. An evil man met his just fate. Take that for data.
