So Long, Hillary! Good Riddance!

Every once in a while there comes a columnist who absolutely nails it. Those of us who have been chafing under the somnolence and cowardice of the House and Senate Democrats in recent weeks, including Diane Feinstein of California when she rolled over—soft white thighs akimbo—for Alito, will take heart that the strong voice of Molly Ivins will be heard echoing down the corridors on the Hill for quite a while.

Hillary's "Iowa yell" took place Monday in Harlem. The gallery has been waiting for this and she will not soon forget how easy it is to find that banana peel.
