    Eugene J. McCarthy, the sardonic Senate dove who stunned the nation by upending President Lyndon B. Johnson's re-election drive amid the Vietnam War turmoil of 1968, died on Saturday. He was 89.

    This would have gotten more attention but for Richard Pryor also passing today.

    We could really use him today!
    He spent ~$146.00 on an election and never took contributions from anyone.
    He rules!
