Molly Ivins is an acknowledged expert on Texas politics; therefore, she's in a better position than many to give us the skinny on Mr. Bush, who was governor of Texas for six years. She also went to school with the man, and she's followed his career for many years. Finally, Molly is one of the few political commentators out there who actually had a career as a serious journalist before she became a columnist. She's a graduate of the Columbia Journalism School, and she was a long-time reporter for the New York Times before she returned to her native Texas. With a background like that, I suspect she understands something about standard journalistic practices, such as confirming and verifying sources, as well as the difference between facts, opinions, and pure conjecture. Molly certainly has her point of view, but she's most definitely not a political hack; and it's not fair to dismiss her out of hand because you don't like what she says or you disagree with her political views. Check her facts -- if she's wrong about something, call her on it. I think you'll find she has a point more often than not. Certainly, Molly has been critical of those on the right wing of the politcal spectrum, but there is a difference between criticism and "bashing". So far, I've not seen Molly cross that line, except possibly in jest. Open your mind a little, and you may be suprised at what you find.
