Our beloved Molly is gone.

One of my most beloved heroes, Molly Ivins, died today of breast cancer. She was a force to be reckoned with, with a wit that was matched by no one and a heart as big as all outdoors. She will be greatly missed.

"I have been attacked by Rush Limbaugh on the air, an experience somewhat akin to being gummed by a newt. It doesn't actually hurt, but it leaves you with slimy stuff on your ankle."

"Everyone knows the man has no clue, but no one there has the courage to say it. I mean, good gawd, the man is as he always has been: barely adequate."

"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."

"It is possible to read the history of this country as one long struggle to extend the liberties established in our Constitution to everyone in America."

"I dearly love the state of Texas, but I consider that a harmless perversion on my part, and discuss it only with consenting adults. "

"The first rule of holes: when you're in one, stop digging."
