You got to dance with them what brung you : politics in the Clinton years by Molly Ivins ( Book )
14 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 1,853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
You Got to Dance with Them What Brung You brings together a first-class collection of smart, spirited, and fiercely funny writings. From the wild and woolly politics of her native Texas to the waffling in the Oval Office, Molly Ivins exposes the fatuous and hypocritical at all levels of public life. Whether she's writing about the 1996 presidential candidates ("Dole contributed perhaps the funniest line of the year with his immortal observation that tobacco is not addictive but that too much milk might be bad for us. The check from the dairy lobby must have been late that week"), conspiracy theorists ("Twenty-five years in the newspaper bidness have given me a fairly strong faith in the proposition that if you haven't read about it in The Daily Disappointment or seen it on the network news, it's probably not true"), or cultural trends ("I saw a restaurant in Seattle that specialized in latte and barbecue. Barbecue and latte. I came home immediately"), Molly takes on the issues of the day with her trademark good sense and inimitable wit
Who let the dogs in? : incredible political animals I have known by Molly Ivins ( Book )
10 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 1,499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 )
6 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,369 WorldCat member 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

Bushwhacked life in George W. Bush's America by Molly Ivins ( )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
According to bestselling political commentator Molly Ivins, America has been Bushwhacked by a president who has applied the same flawed strategies he used in governing Texas to running the largest superpower in the world. Ivins examines Bush's record in Texas and nationally to show how his economic policies devastated the Texas budget and now threaten the same for America, how he has waged war on terrorism by means of unprecedented challenges to our civil liberties, and how he has decimated the gains the country has made in environmental protections, health and safety standards, and foreign relations. In focusing attention on the September 11 attacks, we have been distracted from the deterioration of American life and other threats of greater magnitude
