The inimitable Molly Ivins' personal Hall of Fame of America's most amazing and outlandish politicians--the wicked, the wise, the witty, and the witless--drawn from more than twenty years of reporting on the folks who attempt to run our government (in some cases, into the ground). Ivins takes us on a wild ride through two decades of political life, from Ronald Reagan, through Big George and Bill Clinton, to our current top dog, known to Ivins readers simply as Dubya. But she also writes hilariously, perceptively, and at times witheringly, of John Ashcroft, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, H. Ross Perot, Tom DeLay, Ann Richards, Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, and the current governor of Texas, known as Rick "Goodhair" Perry.--From publisher description.
Bill of wrongs : the executive branch's assault on America's fundamental rights by Molly Ivins ( Book )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,371 libraries worldwide
Throughout her long career of "afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted," the cause closest to Molly Ivins's heart was protecting the freedoms we all value. Sadly, today we're living in a time when dissent is equated with giving aid to terrorists, when any of us can be held in prison without even knowing the charges against us, and when our constitutional rights are being interpreted by a president who calls himself "The Decider." Ivins got the idea for this book while touring America to speak out in defense of free speech. In her travels Ivins met ordinary people going to extraordinary measures to safeguard our liberties, and she intended this book to be a joyous celebration of those heroes. But during the Bush years, the project's focus changed as Ivins observed how dissent in the defense of liberties was characterized as treason by the Bush administration and its enablers.--From publisher description.
