Do you know how to cure a chicken-killin' dog? Now, you know you cannot keep a dog that kills chickens, no matter how fine a dog it is otherwise. Some people think you cannot break a dog that has got in the habit of killin' chickens, but my friend John Henry always claimed you could. He said the way to do it is to take one of the chickens the dog has killed and wire the thing around the dog's neck, good and strong.

It puzzles me that with so much journalistic talent the Buffalo News continues to run Molly Ivins convoluted, highly partisan, and smear-laden opinions.
After wading through her murky chicken and dog analogy, Ivins wanders into the land of recriminations and outright hate. What can a reader learn from this type of immature reflection?
In her abject anger at the election results, Ivins blames God, gays, and guns for the misfortunes of the Democrats or as she prefers to call them the progressives. The reference to God is Ivins way of suggesting that Republicans actually vote their values. Last time I checked it is still legal for Americans to vote their values. As for gays it is the Democrats who injected the issue of one's private sex life into the debates remember Kerrys reference to Cheneys daughter? I guess Ivins overlooked that. In her emotionally drained state she has also forgotten the Second Amendment in her reference to guns.
As for the system that George W. Bush stands for: I wonder if that system includes the tens of millions given to the Democrats by Soros and other giant corporations who supported Mr. Kerry? May I suggest also that in the interest of progressive politics Ms. Ivins lower her $20,000 plus asking price to speak at public gatherings to which she has been invited.
Ivins obviously is unaware that the progressives of the past and today are the Republicans. It is Republicans who are fully involved in reforming failed government programs, improving the lives of its citizens both here and abroad, and fulfilling the promise of America for all its citizens.
She makes sense to me. How would like her wired around your neck?
Apparently not...but her columns appear everywhere...hate filled, more appropriate to paranoiac publications, not "mainstream" media.
Maybe mainstream is no longer mainstream...
How about this honey ? Who would you take,Molly or Helen Thomas ?
She needs John "Goose" Kerry strung around her neck for a week or so.
So I guess that they are going to continue their leftist, one world, baby killing, gay agenda.
So I will never surrender, I will never give up until my same age group is defeated. Special thanks to Winston of course!
Never fear. Its the likes of rhetoric put out by the Molly Irvins of this nation that drive more people to vote Republican. Let her drivel continue. Hollywood needs something to read.
For sure...she deliberately and artificially injects her columns with the "folksy" touch that has nothing to do with the topic...except very tangentially.
Of course the Liberals lap it up as honest to goodness down home analysis. Ha ha ha!
she writes..."From there, the story bifurcates - it takes two directions."
I'm so happy she defined "bifurcatin'" fer me beings that i'm one-toothed-coon-huntin'-truck drivin'-God-lovin'-homo=hatin'-dumbass hick from the south!
Helen Thomas looks like she'll die sooner ... Heck! She looks like she died in 2000.
She needs to get her ugly a$$ back to Texas and be put to sleep....
I know the truth doesn't matter, but Vioxx was approved for sale in 1999 by Bill Clinton's FDA even though it was already known to possibly cause cardiovascular problems.
What a difference between her real self and her photo with her columns...She must have a problem with that universal force: aging.
You can use "in'" instead of "ing" but you're still a pompous, elitist liberal snob.
"...Vioxx was approved for sale in 1999 by Bill Clinton's FDA..."
You are right about that. And you are right again: facts don't matter to Liberals.
Molly and Buffalo are a good fit.
Who was president in 1996?
How do you cure a chicken-killin' columnist?
"------"in'" instead of "ing"----"
Yes!!! Good point.
The article, if you read it all, goes into the Vioxx recall being the fault of the FDA which knew about the heart problems going back to 1996, and that somehow is the fault of the Republicans. Well, Geez, wasn't Clinton in power back then?
Didn't I see Ivins drunk as a skunk along with Ann Richards on TV about ten years ago?
LMAO.....they sure are
I'm sure papers use her to get conservatives to read their papers and fume...but not many respond to the lies.
Well, I thought the article was about a whistleblower in Arafat's hospital room. Now I see it's an Ivin's attempt at journalism. I'm just shocked she had the guts to title this what's that awful smell/ She's just asking for ridicule.
If ol'Molly want to hang this particular chicken around the appropriate neck, it will be the neck that belongs to her beloved Billy boy.
I sit down for lunch, read the front page section, and I read her column last...always last, before I walk to the head for afternoon constitutional....
And then I wipe the fecal matter off my a$$ with her column.
It chafes my skin a bit...but I find it EXTREMELY cleansing.
BTW, this is a picture of Jim Hightower's latest book cover. For those of you who don't know, he was the last Democrat elected to statewide office in Texas. Molly loves him. They just can't understand why we Texans are too stupid to understand their reasoned arguments:
Can you believe this?
Hear! Hear! Much like the wretched spawn of my state John Grisham, she makes a living off appealing to Northern stereotypes about the South.
However, unlike Grisham, she is an atrocious writer.
Logical thinking is not Ms. Molly's strong suit. In her tirade against Bush she attempts to pin Merck and the Vioxx scandal on those wascally wepublicans. She's too blinded by her own bile to realize the evidence she presents undercuts her argument.
The senator she credits with blowing the whistle on Vioxx is Charles Grassley, a conservative Republican. She traces the scandal back to 1996 when internal Merck memos show that the company knew of the increased heart attack risk. Well under whose watch did the malfeasance occur then? It was the Clinton FDA that approved Vioxx.
This reminds of the corporate accounting scandal. The abuses occurred during the Clinton administration. The Bush administration discovers the scandal and does something about it, but for liberals like Ivins, this is evidence of Republican corruption. What color is the sky in their world?
Molly and Buffalo are a good fit.
They sure are...both overweight and chronic complainers.
So he's like the Michael Moore of Texas politics...nowhere dude.
Y'know there's something to be said about exploiting liberals for cleansing constitutionals.
So, we don't have to be kind to animals anymore? :^0
These are the kind of putrid ramblings that energize the GOP voters. I wish they would put it on the front page. It makes the election results that much sweeter to know people like her/it can't even control themselves in the face of the loss/ass kicking they got.
I'll take Molly. A degree better on the eyes because she ages better than Helen- who should be on the SciFi channel.
I was with a friend in Austin one weekend, and she pointed out Molly. I will never forget that smell. Please keep her out of Texas. Man, talk about bad ozone......someone needs to tell her to tie a rag on a stick, stand in a hot shower, and reach those areas she cannot see......
Well written response.
I must admit that, for me, the article did not invoke an analytic. I just had this image of a dead Molly tied to this liberal's neck as he was trying to read the newspaper...
dont forget to walk her every night and change that flea collar often, LOL
