Ann Richards Passes Away

Former Texas Governor Ann Richards passed away yesterday at the age of 73. Known for her quick wit and sassy demeanor which screamed Texas, Richards was a thorn in the side for many on the right. During the 1988 Democrat National Convention, she claimed George H.W. Bush was “born with a silver foot in his mouth.”

The Bush family would get their revenge in 1994 when George W. Bush defeated Richards to become Governor of Texas. Bush always respected Richards. This morning the President paid tribute to Richards, proclaiming that “Texas has lost one of its great daughters.” She will be missed.

Ma Richards was a presense in the Texas political landscape. I agree that her passing is sad and her kind of posturing and sass-mouthed attitude will be missed.
