Molly Ivins names her heroes of '05: FEINGOLD, MURTHA, SHEEHAN
...For a new standard in graciousness, who can forget Barbara Bush speaking of refugees from Hurricane Katrina stashed in the Astrodome: "What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this working very well for them."

Sure, Katrina was awful, but it brought Michael heckuva-job-Brownie Brown to our attention, so we got to read his inspiring e-mails -- such as, "I am a fashion god."

For those who have been wondering where all the heroes are, let me recommend Russ Feingold, John Murtha and Cindy Sheehan. Isn't it amazing how often all you have to do to be a hero to is to stand up and tell the truth?

With those few, shining exceptions, we can bid adieu to 2005 without great regret. Or, as Texas Gov. Rick Perry said to a reporter earlier this year, "Adios, mo-fo."

1. They are my heroes too
Cindy Sheehan almost had me driving the 18 hours this summer to join Camp Casey and Feingold and Murtha started the process to brings our troops home. Feingold is being a true Patriot by standing up for our civil liberities by oppossing the Patriot Act. Keep up the good work.

3. indeed
'picked up by a live microphone after being interviewed by KTRK-TV. "The station aired the clip, which was taped Monday afternoon, during its newscasts Tuesday and included the fact that Perry called later to apologize."
