Love Ya’ Molly!

GAWD I’m going to miss Molly Ivins. 

Has anyone this side of Mark Twain written about politics with such humor and intelligence? An actual progressive who warned us that Bill Clinton was “weaker than bus stop chili”, Molly was also a Christian in the truest sense of the word (although I have no idea about her church-going habits). I challenge anyone to find one hateful word issued from her pen regarding any political figure. Ivins was able to find something likable about the worst of the opposition while skewering their policies with a flick of the wrist.

I had the pleasure of working on a couple of public policy forums featuring Molly back in the early ’90s, and became involved in efforts to organize and maintain her writings and research later in that decade. I never saw her treat anyone as if they were not an old and dear friend. 

Thanks Molly.

    We were blessed to have Molly’s wit and wisdom as the perfect counterpoint to the meanness and stupidity of the current occupants of 1600. The next two years are going to be a lot harder now that Molly’s sane voice of reason and wonderful snark has been silenced.
    May you rest well Molly in a field of bluebonnets, as you gave us your best you deserve the best.
    Love to you always Molly from a fellow Texan. You will be missed.

    Lucky you, I only saw her on t.v. but what a great wit! I feel really feeble in a presence like hers.
    (A friend of mine heard her say ‘goddamn’ at a public meeting in Irving once, and has never recovered.)
