Wrong, Wrong, Wrong again. Molly Ivins Can’t Say That, Can She? Truth be damned, of course she can. But this time she admits she was wrong and she even apologizes: “My sincere apologies. It is unforgivable of me not to have checked. I am so sorry.”
“CROW EATEN HERE: This is a horror. In a column written June 28, I asserted that more Iraqis (civilians) had now been killed in this war than had been killed by Saddam Hussein over his 24-year rule. WRONG. Really, really wrong. (Molly Ivins, Alternet)”
However, how could any thinking person of literacy be this wrong, even someone named Molly Ivins? As Ms. Molly has a reputation of recycling the writings of others, it will be most interesting to learn the name of who it was who mislead poor Molly. Does this mean that Ms. Molly will rethink her mean attacks on conservatives for innocent mistakes for which they also profusely apologized, such as Rush Limbaugh mistakenly posting Chelsea Clinton’s picture on television? Don’t bet on it.
