Rabid Democrat Eucle Knotts died in 2011 at 102.

After Republicans kept winning in West Virginia, Knotts said, "I can't do much but I did all I could. They let the sons of bitchin' politicians talk them into all kinds of crap. I don't understand it. They're cutting their own throat and they don't realize it. All we have left here is $6, $8 and $10 an hour jobs."

Upset that his son had changed parties to Republican, Eucle said, "He bought and sold a couple of houses, made some money and started thinking he was a big shot. So, he turned Republican. People get a couple of dollars in their hands and they go crazy."
