    Political columnist Robert Novak dies at 78

    Political columnist Robert Novak dies at 78 - Yahoo! News

    Political columnist Robert Novak, a diehard conservative and pugilistic debater who became a household face on TV, has died after a battle with brain cancer.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    he was a giant, a great reporter for half a decade

    a columnist who worked the phones frantically, getting insider scoops

    THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS, he loved it

    born jewish, a recent convert to catholicism

    conservative registered democrat (so his vote would matter in dc, his home)

    critic of overly close american ties to israel

    cut capital gains, his mantra

    always wore a thousand dollars worth of clothes immaculately manicured

    how they hated him

    LOL!

    he's with rollie now

    rip, mr novak, you did a GREAT job!

    I used to love watching him run up the score on Begala day after day after day.

    Well done, Mr. Novak. Rest in peace.

    Columnist Robert Novak dies at 78 - CNN.com

    Bob Novak was a class act and one of those talking heads who knew of what he talked abobut. he was respected not only by those who disagreed him but importently by those who disagreed with him.

    Novak was a professional and he started professional life as a reporter.

    Even people such as 'CUE BALL' James Carville said "What you saw on television was an ideological guy, a fire-breathing right-wing guy," But Novak "still had the sort of ethos of the reporter."

    Many people forget what is stated in the article I linked above "While staunchly conservative, Novak opposed the invasion (( Iraq )) and was frequently critical of the Bush administration. "

    Novak was a thinking man therefore he was a thinking conservative.

    I know that he developed the show Crossfire and he was also on CAPITAL GANG. Novak brought not only class but intelligence to the political debate.

    You did not have to agree with Bob Novak on all issues in order to respect he earned the respect long ago and kept earning it when he appeared on political shows.

    Forever Rememberance !!! Bob !!! Forever Rememberance !!!

    I can't say that I agreed with Novak too much but he did seem to have a kind of integrity and was not prone to simply repeating the party line. I still have difficulty understanding why anyone would out an undercover CIA operative for any reason other than the obvious. But I shall not speak ill of the dead, RIP mr Novak, if more conservative media types were like him I would have a lot more respect for them.

    I could have done much much worse. More than just "scooter" deserved jail time for that dangerous political maneuver.

    I liked Novak, until he stirred up the Valerie Plame hornet nest. After that, he was just another dumbass reporter than didn't know when to just shut the hell up.

    I thanked your post and then took it away. I don't wish him "rest in peace." That's all I will say.

    Too late, I wish we could have had a proper execution fitting a traitor of his caliber.
