Sad.

Ted Stevens, the longest-serving Republic senator in U.S. history, was killed in a small plane crash today in Alaska.

A family friend said that Stevens was one of five who passed in the crash.

Stevens was known as "Uncle Ted" in Alaska and was named "Alaskan of the Century" in 2000 by the state legislature.

Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones.

    What about the others on the flight that passed? Don't their family and loved ones get your 'thoughts'?

    Maybe this red state will get a new blue senator.
    RIP.



  4. 4

    HASN'T BEEN CONFIRMED….THE ONLY THING CONFIRMED WAS THAT HE WAS TRAVELING WITH HIS SON MORON



  5. 5

    It hasn't been confirmed yet! There were conflicting reports and news of his death has not yet been confirmed. You can't post headlines like this without knowing for sure!!



  6. 6

    Perez, there is NO confirmation that Senator Stevens was killed yet.
    You are jumping the gun, AGAIN!
    With serious news, I only follow CNN and MSNBC.
    You, sir, are not serious news.



  7. 7

  20. 20

    I can't stand the repulicans but i feel for him what a terrible way to die RIP love to his family



  21. 21

    why is this sad? Every living thing dies. he had a long life and probably didn't suffer, it was quick. seems ideal to me other than the mess on the ground, with gas and oil and stuff. He was old! and yay, one fewer Republican! He was a greedy rich guy



  22. 22

    Its confirmed he's a splat on the tar mack.



  23. 23

    It was confirmed just now that he died.

    The proponent of the "Bridge to Nowhere" was on the "Plane to Nowhere". Too bad Sarah Palin wasn't on that plane, too!

  24. @v@ says – reply to this

    Respect. This man spent six decades serving in the public sector, starting with World War II. He flew C-46 and C-47 transport planes and served in the China-Burma-India theater with the Fourteenth Air Force Transport Section. He was awarded a couple of medals. He was found guilty of accepting gifts later, but it doesn't really wipe out all of the good work he's done. I suspect a lot of politicians accept gifts but don't get caught, or hung out to dry. Rest in peace.



  25. 25

    Why, oh why, couldn't it have been the entire Palin trash family?!?!?



  26. 26

    Too bad the plane didn't crash into the Palin Compound's home with the entire family of LOSERS in it!



  27. 27

    Heh. Sometimes even God has to try twice I guess. (This was his second plane crash.) What is wrong with the politicians from Alaska anyway? The voters all have brain freeze?

    One thing we will all have to remember this guy for though is the "intertoobz" meme. "The internet is a long series of tubes . . ."

    Re: LetttyB – Agreed



  29. 29

    This is the idiot who called the internet a "series of tubes".

    Re: Bailey8 – Bailey, you say he was traveling with his son Moron? that's a horrible name. poor guy must have been teased a lot in school.



  31. 31

    rip and all but he was corrupt anyway

    Re: AlaskanPenguin – Didn't Steven's wife die in a plane crash also? Today is the 9 year anniversary of Chuck Menard's mysterious plane crash. He was Palin's neighbor when she was first married to Toad. Track Palin is the spitting image of Chuck Menard.
