In Memoriam. Goodbye, Miss Molly.

I just saw the news item. Damn, that hurts. There are a few people who I wish would live forever, and she was near the top of the list.

On a similar note, And because of her life’s work, I think it fitting to put more political muckraking in to the mix..

The City of Miami has booked the Orange Bowl solid for the next 3 months in order to be ready for an anti-wake celebration when Dr Fidel dies.

At least they are honest in their feelings. Extremely (extremistly?) tacky but honest.

I know the Commander in Chimp will be shedding crocodile tears. He did for other notable opponents of his, like Paul Wellstone and Pope John Paul II, and Ann Richards…

That bastard is so tacky the flies have to wipe their feet on a dead horse after flying too near him.

    Forgive me if I cry real tears over this one. Molly Ivins was a sharp, witty woman. Logical and intelligant, she could send a clarion call demanding you to act. Her January 11, 2007 was a classic example of her abilities. We can not afford this loss. RIP Molly and tell Ann I said Hello.

    I have never been an admirer of Molly Ivins. She wrote an awful and insipid column in one of the conservative Dallas papers for a decade and then wrote much the same for the Fort Worth daily, too. She would write one thing for the corporate dailies, and another thing for the Texas Observer and Nation magazines.

    She was an endless cheerleader for all things Democratic Party. That was her constant, and I read her mediocre commentaries in the local paper weekly, as I lived in Dallas myself. For me, she was the Democratic Party equivalent of the CIA’s feed, Georgie Ann Geyer. Gossipy, chit-chatty, and annoying.

    In Clinton’s time, Molly showed her true colors by urging US intervention against Yugoslavia for years before it actually was done by her hero, the Slick One. Then when the bombing began her voice was utterly silent on the issue, even as others with more conscience rallied against the war. Her silence was very loud.

    Later, after the war was over, she cheerleaded and spoke about how great it was that Milosevic was put on trial by the US victors of this illegal US military assault on another sovereign country. Very sad.

    Thanks to Molly and her liberal fan club plus many others, Yugoslavia is no longer a major multi ethnic society, but rather a group of ethnic enclaves. She cheered for what really was true imperialist ethnic cleansing on a gigantic scale. All the time playing Ms Liberal.

    And thanks to Molly and her incessant campaigning against Milosevic, we were prepped as a people to support the same illegalities against Iraq by yet another president urging us into a ‘humane’ intervention.

    As she came down with cancer, her columns seemed to improve. She seemed to get better in her last couple of years. RIP. But I never thought much of her politics.

    yeah, I know you are pissed at the Democrats.

    But, hey, they are the only organized allies we have.

    I liked the idea that she stood up to the Chimp, all the time and in every way.

    Hope you get to feeling better.

    The Democratic Party are not our allies, but enemies of any progressive change in this country. At every point they ally not with us the People, but the Republican Party, Jonah. The Democratic Party is one wing of the US Corporate Party, and it has nothing to do at all with how I am feeling.

    yeah, but trust me on this, when the revolution kicks off in full swing I don’t believe we should be checking peoples credentials before letting them join.

    and remember that the party is no more The People than the Government is.

    And the people, regardless of which side they fall out on, will bleed.

    Whatever we need to take to the other side of the revolution, we will need to grab it before we go in.

    see you at the barricades, I got physical therapy in like 8 hours.

    Hey!!! NO blood squeeze is revolutionary. Strictly old school.

    Not my Tripe. Most sincerely.

    People will bleed. Some will bandaid. A few might even play the harmonica.

    Join?!? Take that cape back to the phonebooth and get your dime back. Change?? You bet! It IS needed.

    The pen is NOT mightier than the sword.

    Until it is. Peace.
