Thank you, Jim.

I really needed that...a great sketch, she looks full of life and happy.

Now hopefully people will make her *really* happy and, in her words...

Raise hell. Think of something ridiculous to make the ridiculous look ridiculous. ... We need people in the streets, banging pots and pans and demanding, 'Stop it, now!'

This caricure is wonderful! I like it how you did her smiling! Not only her mouth is smiling, her eyes smiles too!
I'm stupid so I must ask you; who is Molly Ivins?

To arschblog: Thanks. Molly just passed away. She is one of the few liberals in the state of Texas and a witty woman, especially when she comments on the President. She has known him since he was in college I think. If anyone knows more about her(Michelle) let us know. Her writing has appeared in Progressive and Texas Monthly magazines.

Molly Ivins was a commentator who has written about Texas politics for a long time. She knew about Dubya back when he was running for Governor...and she warned the denizens of the Republic of Texas not to be fooled by the little carpetbagging runt. Of course, she sort of was like Cassandra...nobody heeded her warning.

Read some of her stuff...that is, unless you are a conservative and easily offended by liberal views. She was a great writer...sort of Hunter S. Thompson-esque but with less chemical content.
