Molly Ivins Can’t Say That, Can She?

After watching the terrific Molly Ivins documentary, Raising Hell, I rushed to the library to pour more of her incredible one liners over me. Things like, “Saying George Bush is shallow is like pointing out a dwarf is short.” It’s refreshing to hear her take on the Reagan years, followed by the shallow Bush years, in this book. Her incisive wit completely demolishes the Texas legislature, simply reporting the nonsense that flowed forth like Jim Kaster of El Paso’s introducing a bill that required felons to submit 24-hour advance notice of what crimes they planned to commit, and where. Hilarious, lovely, and I wish we still had her around to dismantle the current administration.
