Why don't you start off with a little bit of Molly today? Or heck, even every day?

"The next person who refers to David Duke as a populist ought to be Bushururued, as they now say in Japan, meaning to have someone puke in your lap." (Mother Jones, May/June 1992)

Hehehe. Bushururued. That is so funny.

There's a few more here. Apart from her earthy witticisms and sharp eye for hypocrisy, she could be such an optimist:

"• Any nation that can survive what we have lately in the way of government, is on the high road to permanent glory."

I've read most of her books and they were so funny I got blisters in weird places.

Next time I'm at the bookstore I'm getting the rest of these. When I'm done reading them I'll put them up for give-away here so if you want you can read her stuff too. Or I'll donate them to the KPHX library.

I like the last paragraph to her last column:

We are the people who run this country. We are the deciders. And every single day, every single one of us needs to step outside and take some action to help stop this war. Raise hell. Think of something to make the ridiculous look ridiculous. Make our troops know we're for them and trying to get them out of there.

Right on, James.
