Today the Conservative Movement lost one of its toughest streetfighters. Veteran columnist, reporter, and pundit Robert Novak died at the age of 78.

Greg Gutfeld gives him a blog-style obituary over at Big Hollywood:

Men like Novak normally don’t have a cult following, but he did. Because he was cool. While others would carry around dog-eared copies of old Hunter S. Thompson paperbacks, and believe nonconformity means acting like a nonconformist, fans of Novak knew that true rebellion meant rebelling against vacant rebellion. Novak, after all, wore a three-piece suit every moment of his life making him more of a badass than a tattooed and pierced Johnny Depp could ever think of becoming.

Here, here!

Today would be a good day to pick up Novak’s memoir The Prince of Darkness if you haven’t gotten to it yet. I might download it onto my Kindle tonight.

I’m sure we’ll have plenty of coverage of Novak’s passing tomorrow. It’s bound to be a subject on the cable news shows. One can be certain that some leftist out there is going to say something cruel and stupid.
