    Default Robert Novak, Prince of Darkness, dead at 78

    Columnist Robert Novak died early Tuesday after a battle with brain cancer.

    The Chicago Sun-Times' Lynn Sweet reports that Novak died at home early Tuesday.

    "He was someone who loved being a journalist, love journalism and loved his country and loved his family," Novak's wife, Geraldine, told the Sun-Times.

    Novak announced last summer that he had a brain tumor, and said that he did not expect to survive it. He described his treatment in a column in September and said then, "I have lost not only left peripheral vision but nearly all my left vision, probably permanently."

    Conservative publication Human Events has rolled out an obituary by former Reader's Digest Editor-in-Chief Kenneth Tomlinson and a remembrance of Novak by Timothy Carney, a former reporter for Novak and the editor of the Evans-Novak Political Report since Novak's retirement last year.

    Novak was one of the original TV right-wing zealots. He used to appear on Agronsky and Company (25+ years ago) and the McLaughlin Group, where he threw many verbal grenades.

    He and his writing partner, Rowland Evans, were very critical of Israel, even in the 1970's. I think the only thing that protected them from being accused of being anti-semites was that Novak himself was Jewish. Ironically, Novak went on to convert to Catholicism.

    ^ Yup, the old one. (Not to be confused with Tucker Carlson, the "young" one who wore a bow tie.)

    I'll never forget the good-humored, Jabba the Hut-like Jack Germond somehow managing to keep his dignity among all the mudslinging.

    The SNL parody was also great with Dana Carvey as McLaughlin.
