Final West Virginia Icon to be named in honor of Robert C Byrd

Posted by a4g @ 4/13/2005 06:49:00 AM

West Virginia Senator Robert C Byrd, who self-effacingly describes himself as the "West Virginian of the 20th Century" will complete a 47 year quest to name every last thing in West Virginia after himself, in a ceremony later this week.

"Frankly-- I say, frankly--I don't know why it didn't occur to me sooner, boy," said the august statesman to a crowd of supporters.

As of Friday, Senator Robert C Byrd will be officially rennamed after himself.

"The Robert C Byrd Senator Robert C Byrd", as he will be known, will join other illustrious institutions, such as The Robert C. Byrd Highway; the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam; the Robert C. Byrd Institute; the Robert C. Byrd Life Long Learning Center; the Robert C. Byrd Honors Scholarship Program; the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope; the Robert C. Byrd Institute for Advanced Flexible Manufacturing; the Robert C. Byrd Federal Courthouse; the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center; the Robert C. Byrd Academic and Technology Center; the Robert C. Byrd United Technical Center; the Robert C. Byrd Federal Building; the Robert C. Byrd Drive; the Robert C. Byrd Hilltop Office Complex; the Robert C. Byrd Library; the Robert C. Byrd Learning Resource Center; and the Robert C. Byrd Rural Health Center.

A heckler was escorted away by police after questioning the Senator on why there was still no 'Robert C Byrd' nomenclature on any inner city Community Centers, Popeye's restaurants, or Baptist churches. Senator Byrd dismissed the man as a 'white nigger'.





UPDATE: According to Captain Ed and Michelle Malkin, it looks like ol' Sheets finished up the quest just in the nick of time.
