Why I love Molly Ivins: Reason #567.

From today's column...

Liberals, normally gentle as little kittens -- usually you can go right up to 'em and touch their soft, curly fur, they don't mind a bit -- are in an alarming state of righteous anger. This time, they devoutly believe, jackbooted fascism is just around the corner. Not only do they think the Bill of Rights is being quietly dismantled, they are sentient enough to notice that our reputation around the world has gone from the instant support of Sept. 11 to disgust and fear.

Meanwhile, many evangelical Christians are convinced gay marriage is upon us and will be the end of civilization. How they convinced themselves George W. Bush is the Lord's anointed is beyond me. I've known him since high school and watched him closely as a public official for 10 years, and I have yet to see the first sign of it.

Love. Her.

Oh, and here's something that's been floating around the internet long enough to get it's own page at snopes.com, but I'd never seen it before today and it's funny as hell so I'm posting it.

The last three lines of the French care instructions on this American-made backpack sold in France translates as "We're sorry our president is an idiot. We didn't vote for him."

Yes, you can order them online.

Molly Ivins is a goddess. Still wishing you'd have gone to that party at her house?

Well, yeah, that was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. But I had a pretty good time with you and Dena too. ;)
