We’re taught that it is wrong to speak ill of the dead. Grievances and beefs are meant to be laid to rest along with a body. It’s tacky and low-class to celebrate a death. Lucky for us, I am tacky and low-class.

RIP, Phyllis Schlafly. No woman ever worked so tirelessly, ventured so far on behalf of the belief that other women should do none of that.— Glenn Thrush (@GlennThrush) September 6, 2016
