I blame the Shrub.
I loved it when she called Camille Paglia an asshole. Good rest, Ms. Ivins.
I am sorry to hear this--she was one of my favorite writers. The world has lost a fierce fighter for social justice.
Of all the people who deserved to see Bush leave office.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! First Ann, now Molly. I weep.
This is sad.
Re #6: Ann who?
molly is a true american hero.
This ruined my day. Gawd, I loved her column.
How unfair that she didn't live to see Shrub indicted, impeached, imprisoned, or... at least... in retirement. Fuck, fuck, fuck.
Only the good die young.
She was supposed to either live forever or, as Dan said, long enough to see Shrub taken out.
That just... fuck.
I hope she wrote a last column, to be published after her death.
Shit. I didn't even know her cancer had come back.
She was the funniest, smartest political columnist I ever read. She introduced us all to Texas politics way back in the time of Ross Perot and before. Anybody who now regrets having voted for Shrub has no excuse; Molly Ivins showed us exactly what to expect.
Damn. She was a great one.
First Ann - then Molly - while Bill O' and Rush continue to subtract from the sum of human intelligence whenever they speak. Only proving once again that there is no Dog. If there is a heaven and all addictions are moot, I hope Ann has just welcomed you with a bourbon and branch water. RIP, gals.
Molly was one of the best. I cried when I read she'd passed.
Oh, that sucks. One of the best people to make clear through her knowledge, analysis and personality that the anti-elitist pose of the New Right is complete horseshit. One of the classiest of our time.
Yes this sucks big time.
But, now I'm living in terror that that chimpbastard Shrub will make some sanctimonious remark about how we've lost a great Amurican.
Thanks for everything, Miz Ivins. You will be terribly missed.
My favorite Molly Ivins quote:
“Good thing we’ve still got politics—finest form of free entertainment ever invented.”
I'm flippin' the bird to Bush for ya, Molly!
Texas produced three great women in the modern era - all are sorely missed. Barbara Jordan, Ann Richards and now Molly Ivins.
Here's a double shot to the possibility they are laying out a better future for us all in a planning meeting somewhere.
This is awful.
molly deserved to live long enough to write about that low, lying hedge's free fall into impeachment... dammit
