Another Golden Girl is Gone to Glory. Here’s to you, Rue McClanahan!

I woke up yesterday to find out (via Twitter) that Rue McClanahan had died. I bust out an EPIC *WALL SLIDE* all up through there! Not Blanche!!! Not now! I loved Blanche. She was the Matron Saint of Classy Geriatric HoSh*t. No one wore a floral negligee like Blanche. And her love of her bosoms was admirable. She was conceited and she KNEW she had a reason.
