Molly Ivins Dies of Cancer at 62 (KELLEY SHANNON, 1/31/07, Associated Press)

Best-selling author and columnist Molly Ivins, the sharp-witted liberal who skewered the political establishment and referred to President Bush as "Shrub," died Wednesday after a long battle with breast cancer. She was 62. [...]

"I'm sorry to say (cancer) can kill you but it doesn't make you a better person," she said in an interview with the San Antonio Express- News in September, the same month cancer claimed her friend former Gov. Ann Richards.

I felt bad about the horse.

I hope Bush sends a shrub to her funeral.

The last original idea she ever had, she stole from Florence King.

She was a terrible mean person and it's fitting that the only notable thing the obit writer could say about her is the not very clever or original pun on the president's name.

She was right about one thing, dying doesn't make you a better person.

The most polite thing I could say about her is "No Comment."

sharp-witted liberal

Regardless of whether this is an oxymoron, it is unquestionable that it is an inapt descriptor of Ms. Ivins.

She made George W. Bush president by convincing the national media & Democrats that he was a lightweight not to be taken seriously.
