Molly Ivins and her little plant jokes

Mollyivins2 There's a new biography of Molly Ivins – called Molly Ivins, a Rebel Life by Bill Minutaglio and W. Michael Smith – and it's on my Christmas Wish List.  Here in a review I found this reminder of her ability to see politicians for what they are, and make us laugh.

She once wrote of a Republican congressman that 'if his IQ slips any lower, we'll have to water him twice a day.'

Of course this isn't the only instance of her mixing politics and botany.  Remember Shrub

    She was one of a kind! Spelling is such a plus!

    Her passing left a big black hole in the political commentary world. I miss her, too.
