Ann Richards has died


She was the former governor of Texas. And her mouth was legendary. You might remember her speech at the 1988 Democratic National Convention, and her immortal line...
"Poor George, he can't help it. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth."
I used to do a dead-on Ann Richardson impersonation for years, using that line. It was so fun to do: "Poooooooor Jee-orge, he CAIN'T heppit... he was born with a silver FUT in his mowth!" I enjoyed doing that one even more than I did impersonating Ross Perot.

Whatever your political stripe, it has to be said: America has lost quite an original character tonight. Prayers going out to her family.
