I wrote a blog piece the other day recalling a fabulous meeting I had with a legendary Texas journalist by the name of Molly Ivins.
Today I am left to wonder: How would this flaming liberal columnist respond to the idiocy we see and hear hourly from the president of the United States, Donald John Trump?
Ivins, who died in 2007 at the age of 62, enraged Texas conservatives with her constant criticism of two Texas governors, George W. “Shrub” Bush and Rick “Gov. Goodhair” Perry.
I am left to wonder what kind of pejorative nickname would Ivins hang on the president. And how in the name of political punditry would she respond to the chaos that keeps roiling the West Wing?
My strong hunch is that she would have driven Donald Trump to near-insanity with that brilliant, biting wit that was her hallmark.
If only . . .
