R.I.P. William F. Buckley Jr.

The Titan of Conservatism has passed on to that Great Cocktail Party in the Sky. Look for much rejoicing and nastiness from the devotees of Karl Marx in the Treason Media and bastions of humanity such as the HuffPo.

As Jonah Goldberg noted on The Corner:

As George Will once said, "before there was Ronald Reagan there was Barry Goldwater, before there was Goldwater there was National Review, and before there was National Review there was William F. Buckley." As conservatives — and as Americans — we are all standing on his shoulders.
Will Robin Williams continue to do his WFB impression? He still does George Gessell when no one knows who he was, so I'd guess so.
