This isn't dated, but I believe it was written during the Gore/Bush campaign. I love the Jeff Danziger cartoons, and this article by him seems to say a lot about today, as well. I just thought someone might find this interesting.

Things haven't improved much, according to Molly Ivins and Lou Dubose, who tell in Shrub how George W. Bush came from nothing to whatever he is today. The powers in Austin are still idiotic, vicious, and incomprehensible. The cupidity of the legislators is a phenomenon unequaled. Somewhere in the midst of all this, a rich nonentity and son of a president, shallow way down deep, makes the squalid deals that are pure Texas: stomping on those least able to fight back, ignoring the poor, excusing the patently obvious crimes of the rich, and hocking his soul for short-term advantage.

EKCS ~ At the risk of sounding like I am, um, sexually preoccupied, I must tell you that the title to your thread made me think of the title to a porn movie.



And I love Molly Ivins! Jim Hightower too!

And there's Bush's Spanish. "Juntos podemos," he tells his Hispanic friends, intending to say, "Together, we can." In the Houston Chronicle, the typo god intervenes and the headline "Juntos Pedemos"--"Together, we fart"--is printed instead. "A collector's item," says Ivins.

It's residue from Senator Santorum's comments about "man on dog" sex, right?

As a Texan born and bred, I can say Molly Ivins definitely does not speak for me nor many other people I know.
