This is one of the articles that she wrote. One of my favorites...
How to cure a chicken-killing dog*
Do you know how to cure a chicken-killing dog? Now, you know you cannot keep a dog that kills chickens, no matter how fine a dog it is otherwise.
The way to do it is to take one of the chickens the dog has killed and wire the thing around the dog’s neck, good and strong. And leave it until that dead chicken stinks so bad that no other dog or person will even go near that poor beast.
Thing’ll smell so bad the dog won’t be able to stand itself. You leave it on there until the last little bits of flesh rots and fall s off, and that dog won’t kill chickens again.
The Bush administration is going to be wired around the neck of the American people for four more years, long enough for the stench to sicken everyone. It should cure the country of electing Republicans. And at least the Democrats won’t have to clean up after him until it is clear to everyone who made the mess.

I remember reading that article out loud while camping with a bunch of Republicans and everyone of them was laughing at it. They're not laughing now....
Molly nailed it that time...
