Ann Richards, Molly Ivins, Dorothy Parker::The Wisdom of Women

Dorothy Parker


“Razors pain you;

 rivers are damp;

 acids stain you;

 and drugs cause cramp.

 Guns aren't lawful;

 nooses give;

 gas smells awful;

 you might as well live.”

"If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to."

Molly Ivins

"If you think his daddy had trouble with 'the vision thing,' wait'll you meet this one,"  On George W. Bush

"If left to my own devices, I'd spend all my time pointing out that he's weaker than bus-station chili," On Bill Clinton

Ann Richards

I'm really glad that your young people missed the Depression and missed the big war. But I do regret that they missed the leaders that I knew, leaders who told us when things were tough and that we'd have to sacrifice, and that these difficulties might last awhile. They brought us together and they gave us a sense of national purpose.”

"Let me tell you, sisters, seeing dried egg on a plate in the morning is a lot dirtier than anything I've had to deal with in politics."

"Power is what calls the shots, and power is a white male game."

I wish they were here today! Instead, we have Sarah Palin and what a disaster she is.  Which, brings us to a final quote, "You can put lipstick on a pig and call her Monique.  But, she' still a pig!"
