Latest Molly Ivins, hope this isn't a dupe
Can't say enough about how much we owe this woman for hope and clarity, not to mention a good laugh.

Dear Friend Dubya,

You know me, pal -- your ol' buddy, governor of Texas and the man with the reelly, reelly good hair. I am writing to tell you what to do in the wake of this here Hurricane Katrina. Numero Uno, you got to send money to Texas. Yup, that is the primero responsibility you got, and since -- you don't mind my saying so -- you ain't done too good so far, I suggest you listen to me on this, instead of making another dumb mistake, like sending aid to Florida.

--snip--

I ain't been this happy since the legs fell off Nell's hamster. After I called two special sessions this summer to solve the school finance crisis and not a damn thing was accomplished, people said I'd have to learn to be a fool. Said I couldn't get a whore a date on a troop train. They've all been taking lessons in how to talk Texan from Dan Rather.

--snip--

My OneStar Foundation coordinates faith-based initiatives and promotes volunteerism, and it's run by the very fine former chair of the state Republican Party. Of course, both of us have been featured speakers at this project to unite churches and organize their membership to vote in coming elections. But that has nothing to do with OneStar's website, which has all those nice pictures of me on it. That's all to help faith-based programs and hurricane victims.

Dubya, my man, I'm sure you can appreciate our fix here, since you were the one who cut state taxes bigger than outside and at the same time passed a bunch of requirements for higher performance from the schools. It ain't worked good so far -- in fact, we hung the wrong horse thief. The only way we could fix this on our own is to raise taxes, so I know you'll understand when I say: Get that money down here faster than small-town gossip.

Your pal, Gov. Goodhair Perry

1. Tell Gov Perry to watch out
There's a soon to be named lady called Rita and models suggest she's on her way to Texas. Looks like their vengeful god is very angry with them these days.
