I had the pleasure of meeting Ron Silver a couple of years ago. He was a warm down-to-earth guy who was very close to his family.
My condolences to his family and many friends.
Michelle Malkin has the transcript of Silver’s speech at the 2004 Republican National Convention.
For some reason the NYPost uses this curious wording in their obituary about Ron Silver,
Once a self-identified lifelong Democrat, Silver was a founding member of the liberal-leaning Creative Coalition in 1989. But he made a breathtaking political transformation, going from far left to radical right after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t recall Silver joining extremists on either side.
