Robert Novak Dies at 78

Robert Novak, a conservative columnist, author and commentator, died today at the age of 78. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor in July 2008.

You can read more about Novak from Lynn Sweet at the Chicago Sun-Times (Novak's paper), New York Times and Washington Post.

Here are the reactions from the two GOP leaders in Congress...

Sen. Mitch McConnell: "For more than half a century, Robert Novak explained the politics and the personalities of Washington to readers across the country through a mix of tireless shoe leather reporting and the kind of keen insight that can only be gained through years and years of dedication to a craft. He was a Washington institution who could turn an idea into the most discussed story around kitchen tables, Congressional offices, the White House, and everywhere in between. Elaine and I extend our deepest sympathies to the entire Novak family."

Rep. John Boehner: "Bob made remarkable contributions in the field of journalism and to the American political landscape. He gave us a lifetime of dedication to the work he loved, and it is hard to imagine Washington without him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time."

Here are some more quotes sent our way...

Ed Crane, president and founder of The Cato Institute: "Odd that the self-described Prince of Darkness was one of the nicest persons I've ever known. Unlike many here in Babylon-by-the-Potomac, Bob became less enamored of the Establishment the longer he was here. He believed in liberty and was a great friend of the Cato Institute. He will be sorely missed."

Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), Republican Study Committee chairman: "Bob Novak's dedication to serious journalism and independent thinking made him a legend in political reporting. Few others have had so large an impact for so long a time. As a touchstone in conservative thought, his legacy will be remembered and forever appreciated."

Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), Republican Conference chairman: "Bob Novak will be remembered as an icon in American politics, a legend in the world of the press and a man who loved his country. Each day he worked to bring the people closer to their government through his exhaustive reporting and in-depth analysis of the important political issues of the day.

"Bob Novak was also a son of the Midwest who served his country bravely during war and gave back to the community that gave so much to him. Our nation will miss him greatly."
