Molly Ivins

“Satire is traditionally the weapon of the powerless against the powerful." -Molly Ivins

Sadly enough, one of the sharpest, funniest, most intelligent women in politics passed away on Wednesday of this week to breast cancer. I was lucky enough to hear her speak a few years ago at Tulane in New Orleans and she was amazing. Though I do not have a particular affinity towards Texas, there is a certain brand of woman that comes out of this state. Along with Ann Richards, Molly Ivins was a "tell it like it is" kind of woman with great wit, intelligence and strength. She will be missed.
