I hate to drink a shot of Patron Tequila to the death of a liberal, but in this case I am going to make an exception.

I agreed in principle with SOME of the positions taken by Molly Ivins. However, I NEVER approved of her tack of vilifying the people with whom she disagreed. All too often she added to the HATE in politics with her vitriolic criticism of Republicans. Though her passing is sad for her family and friends the public will be SPARED more of her admittedly biased and caustic commentary.

The Fun is in the Fight One of Molly's favorite stories about mooning the Klan.

Hey MZ:

She learned it from people like Haldeman, Pill-Head limbaugh, and the RNC Chairman that passed away svereal years ago (can't remeber his name). As memory serves me, she gave an interview several years back where the gist of the comversation was that the conservs. were lambsating the lib's., so why should the libs. sit and take it. The door swings both ways.

mzchief, you are 100% right on this one. she was a hateful spiteful bitch. typical of flaming liberals. no way but 'their way' . if you donn't agree with them you deserve public humiliation and death.
death is the real equilizer. wonder if she ever looked back and thought what a difference she could have made . probably not.
if we can't make a difference in this world , what is the purpose?

i always enjoyed her column, it let me in on the thought process of the enemy. she at least had the courage to write in public what the liberal politician are desperatly trying to hide about themselves.

at least she was honest about her hatred

8:20, does the double-standarded hypocrisy of your comment even dawn on you? YOU say that a liberal female writer who thinks "her way is the only way" is a "hateful, spiteful bitch" who is "typical of flaming liberals."

So what does that make you?

Molly was never hateful, vitriolic or spiteful (read some of her writing, ignoramuses!), and the only reason anyone ever called her a bitch was that something she said cut too close -- people don't like being called on their bullshit, even in a wry and funny way.

We'll miss you, Molly. Well, Barry and I will, anyway.

she sure seemed full of bitterness to me. did she rant and rave in private? i don't know, never met her. but she didn't seem very happy.
was she a christian, muslin,agnostic or atheist? how can you come to terms with dying and not believe in God? where do you go after death.

Gleemonex said...

12:37, what does that have to do with anything? Molly Ivins's spiritual life is none of your business.

What I get from your comment is that you think no one who isn't a rah-rah Bush Repbublican could possibly be a Christian or a moral person, a common delusion among today's evangelicals.

Besides, she sure seemed happy to me -- every photo I've ever seen shows her smiling, full of light and happiness, even when she's taking the piss out of someone whose politics she disagrees with.

I love this website. My mind gets blown on a regular basis.

Besides, "muslin" is a fabric. "Muslim" is a person who adheres to the religion of Islam.

12:37 Normally you are buried or cremated after death.

I've got a great Molly quote on my blog. Something she said about a sodomy law. LOL!

SHeehan, Nice try but no one wants to go to your blog. One less liberal today is a good thing. One down, 11 to go. I have a sodomy joke for you. Call me.

Hooray for gleemonex!!! Well said. There are some petty small-minded mean-spirited posters on this one. Whatever you think about Molly Ivins politics or opinions, cancer is a terrible way to die. It's really pathetic that some people who didn't agree with her politics are glad she has passed. I think she made a big difference--she got people to think--which is more than alot of these posters do. Hateful and spiteful applies to some of these posts. Some of these posts remind me how cruel and stupid people can be.

12:37 Molly was a happy Democrat. We all know happy Democrats go straight to heaven. Sorry, but they are a lot of them up there!

Mschef, when will be spared the hatred from Ann Coulter...now she can get down and dirty!

As I ponder Molly's passing, I'm reminded of the early scene in the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy's house landed on the wicked witch of the west. The locals were quite happy. So long Molly. Come on Toto, let's move on.

Molly Ivins, a true Texas treasure. You will be sorely missed.
