There are few people upon whose grave not only would I piss, I would eat a meal extremely high in fiber so I could crap on his grave as well.
He is a perfect example of what happens when an evil idiot inherits millions, if not a billion. His family (the Mellons) made its wealth from banking, Oil, and aluminum.
Here are a few facts about this right wing horror show.
From the Church of Ineffable Stupidity:
American Enterprise Institute
Federalist Society (think Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Scalia, and Alito)
These are just a few of his favorite things, groups he underwrote, created, or helped fund to a large degree.
Recall the days of Paula Jones and Bill Clinton? Scaife.
Recall the "murder" of Vince Foster? Scaife.
Remember Mena, Arkansas, the CIA drug deals, and Clinton? Scaife.
Whitewater Gate? Scaife.
If there was a conservative screwball attack on democrats, the likely culprit behind it all was Richard Mellon Scaife. He was a major backer of Richard Nixon, with close to $1,000,000 in dirty money for Nixon's re-election campaign. There are those who believe that Watergate was mostly his doing.
When Hillary Rodham claimed that there was a vast right wing conspiracy, she was wrong. It was a conspiracy, it was very right wing, but it was not vast. It was Scaife.
Good riddance, you scab on humanity.
Unfortunately, Scaife is not alone. Other family members also dabble in Reich Wing causes. William Mellon is a huge tax cheat, doing everything in his power to avoid paying any taxes. Matthew Taylor Mellon is on the RNC and directs the New York GOP.
As for the poll, I understand some may still be breathing. I can wait.
9:30 AM PT: Huh. Just learned that Scaife inherited $500,000,000.
Imagine the good he could have done in this world, instead of being a loathesome snake.
