I'm not a regular Molly Ivins reader, but on the few occasions that I have read her work, I found it fairly amusing.

Tim Blair is apparently of a different mind.

Today, he's all bent out of shape because she apparently stole a description of Arnold Schwarzenegger ("looks like a condom stuffed with walnuts") from someone else:
"Ivins lifted “the observation she made” from Australian writer Clive James. It’s at least a decade old. Resign, you shameless, dishonest, joke-pinching she-beast!" (italics in original)
He then proceeds to take Ivins to task because others have attributed the quote to her.

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret, Timmy: the memory is a funny thing, especially when it comes to clever turns of phrase. On multiple occassions, I've thought of a clever way of saying something, said it to several people, and then later realized that I was actually regurgitating something I'd read, sometimes years before. I'm sure you've done it too - especially with something short, like, say, a funny five-word description of something.

Seeing as how Ivins regularly cranks out columns full of her own jokes, and seeing as how this is the only example of plagiarism you can find (and let's not discuss that bullshit with notorious pain in the ass Florence King - Ivins would have to be stupid to the point of not being able to walk to intentionally steal from someone and set it amidst a boatload of attributions to that person), I think we can safely give her the benefit of the doubt on this one.

Yes, yes, I know that, for ideological reasons, you'd love to get Ivins kicked out of every newspaper that publishes her, but until you can find something substantial of which to accuse her, why don't you suck my dick like it has the antidote in it?

That one I got from Chris Rock.
