So when will Tommy Denton hit bottom?

Roanoke Times editor Tommy Denton's Sunday column quoted pundit Molly Ivins' "First Rule of Holes: When you're in one, quit digging."

Oh yeah, Molly "I'm-a-Bush-hater" Ivins, the nationally syndicated columnist for Tommy's former employer, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Oh yeah, Molly Ivins, author of "Bushwacked: Life in George W. Bush's America."

And this Molly Ivins, too.

Wait, what's that it says about "Her television commentaries have been featured on National Public Radio and the McNeil/Lehrer program?"

NPR? PBS McNeil/Lehrer? Aren't those part of the same biased Corporation for Public Broadcasting that has made left-wing pundit Bill Moyers wealthy and into which Ken Tomlinson is trying to inject some balance?

I'm not sure that's dirt you're shoveling Tommy, but you're definitely in over your head.
