Only Molly Ivins can write about redneck politics in her native Texas and the discreet charm of the Bushwazee and manage to be both brutally honest and unabashedly affectionate.

From Molly Ivins -- one of our nation's toughest, savviest and funniest political observers -- the runaway bestseller that put her on the map as a national celebrity.
Molly Ivins likes to speak her mind. This brash and clear-sighted collection is no exception. She is outspoken as she expounds her liberal views about politics -- the Reagan years: Reagan spent a half hour with the Lebanese foreign minister, who was trying to explain the intricate relations between the many political factions in his country. Suddenly Reagan said, "You know, your nose looks just like Danny Thomas'." -- about Texas, about human folly, and about whatever else she damn well pleases. Full of hilarious anecdotes and well-placed shots at the high-and-mighty, Molly Ivins Can't Say That, Can She? delivers illuminating commentary on the life and times of today.
