Molly Ivins (1945-2007)

In memory of Molly Ivins (sharp-witted liberal, columnist and best-selling author who skewered the political establishment and referred to President Bush as “Shrub,”):

"The thing about democracy, beloveds, is that it is not neat, orderly, or quiet. It requires a certain relish for confusion."

"I am not anti-gun. I’m pro-knife. Consider the merits of the knife. In the first place, you have to catch up with someone in order to stab him. A general substitution of knives for guns would promote physical fitness. We’d turn into a whole nation of great runners. Plus, knives don’t ricochet. And people are seldom killed while cleaning their knives."

"It’s like, duh. Just when you thought there wasn’t a dime’s worth of difference between the two parties, the Republicans go and prove you’re wrong."

"I believe that ignorance is the root of all evil. And that no one knows the truth."
