Overview

Molly Ivins Can't Say That, Can She? by Molly Ivins

Whether she's writing about redneck politics in her native Texas or the discreet charms of Bushwazee, Molly Ivins in never less than devastatingly honest—and hilarious.  Our toughest, funniest, and savviest columnist delivers the goods on:

-Texas politics: "Well, our attorney general is under indictment.  He ran as 'the people's lawyer'; now we call him 'the people's felon.'"

-The flag burning debate: "Bush's last birthday cake was in the form of the American flag, and he ate it—stars, stripes, and all.  Think about where that flag wound up—I call that desecration."

-Beign a woman in Texas: "There are several strains of Texas culture: They are all rotten for women... One not infrequently sees cars or trucks sporting the bumper sticker "Have fun—beat the hell out of someone you love."

Molly Ivins sees right through the self-righteous, self-interested, unprincipled and just plain wierd stuff in our lives. She's on the money and very funny. The book is probably a little less funny now than it would have been before "w" went to Washington.

the same question I did...Who cares what Molly Ivins says? Transparent liberal elitism at its most disgraceful.
