Sad News: Conservative Icon Paul Weyrich Dead at Age 66

Some very sad news to report. 🙁

Via the Foundry:

Paul M. Weyrich, chairman and CEO of the Free Congress Foundation and first president of The Heritage Foundation, died this morning around 1 a.m. He was 66 years old. Weyrich was a good friend to many of us at Heritage, a true leader and a man of unbending principle. He won Heritage’s prestigious Clare Boothe Luce Award in 2005.

I think, if you’re a Christian, This would be a good time to say a prayer for his family.

Of course, the left is keeping it classy, as always:roll:

May they all rot in hell. 😡

I will not lie about it. I did not know the man, or anything about him. But from what I read he was quite the leader. Conservatism, is a bit dimmer today. 🙁

May he rest in peace.
