We’ve lost a great journalist at a time when we can least afford it. As our so-called leaders ran and hid like cowards, and continue to equivocate and pile on the nonsense, Molly Ivins stood up and told the truth, loudly and clearly. She coined the term “Shrub” as a reference to Dubya, and was relentless in her criticism of cowardly Democrats. She died too young last Wednesday, and in her honor I’ve written a new song, “Molly Don’t Leave Us.”
Raise hell. Think of something to make the ridiculous look ridiculous. — Molly Ivins, in her last column.
