I have always loved her Texan turn of a phrase. C&L has a nice little tribute, here.
Some gems lifted from the C&L Post:
"It is possible to read the history of this country as one long struggle to extend the liberties established in our Constitution to everyone in America."
"Just when you thought there wasn't a dime's worth of difference between the two parties, the Republicans go and prove you're wrong."
"I have been attacked by Rush Limbaugh on the air, an experience somewhat akin to being gummed by a newt. It doesn't actually hurt, but it leaves you with slimy stuff on your ankle."
I'll keep her in my thoughts.
