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.

How rich that #PhyllisSchlafly once said "there will be a woman President over my dead body." Come November, she'll get her wish.— Randi Mayem Singer (@rmayemsinger) September 6, 2016

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
You're all complaining about 2016, but it just killed Phyllis Schlafly, so it's alright by me.— devin faraci (@devincf) September 6, 2016
