Good Golly, Miss Molly!

Best-selling Bush-basher Molly Ivins has died of cancer. I won’t miss her unfunny and tired crap. I certainly wouldn’t wish cancer on somebody just because their views were idiotic and their pandering to the loony left was as funny as a dental exam. But it will be nice to see one less hack filling the New and Noteworthy tables at Barnes.

But in her last days, she left us with this unintentional glimmer of insight into why the antiwar radicals will never grasp the concept of defending this nation and civilization and modernity from the barbarians of islamofascism, just as they failed to understand how to win the Cold War:

“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,” Ivins wrote in the Jan. 11 column. “We need people in the streets, banging pots and pans and demanding, ’Stop it, now!’”

These are people who think you can accomplish anything by going into the street and banging pots and pans.

They’re simply stupid.

And they’re easily led, especially in the Internet age, to form huge armies of morons standing in the street chanting pathetic slogans about Halliburton. And in part, these zombies are led by pseudo-authors with delusions of wisdom, like Molly Ivins.

So while I don’t cheer the death by cancer of an individual, I can at least take some satisfaction in knowing that one more of the middle managers of moonbattery will no longer produce free propaganda for the enemy.

One note of good news for Molly, however: she will probably continue to vote Democrat every Election Day.
