She's back. Molly Ivins, our most perceptive, outrageously funny political commentator, has given us an uproarious new book.
In Nothin' But Good Times Ahead, Ivins proved that no one has a steadier gaze or a quicker trigger finger, as she hits the bull's-eye in such targets as George Bush, Bill Clinton, Camille Paglia, the Clarence Thomas hearings, and the ethics-twisting, English-slaughtering pols of her beloved Texas. Here's Molly on:
The 1992 Republican Convention: "Many people did not care for Pat Buchanan's speech; it probably sounded better in the original German."
Texas politics: "Better than the zoo, better than the circus, rougher than football, and even more aesthetically satisfying than baseball."
Gibber Lewis, former House Speaker of the Texas State Legislature: "He once announced, 'This is unparalyzed in the state's history." Another Gibberism: "It could have bad ramifistations in the hilterlands."

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. After twenty years building a reputation as one of the savviest political commentators in the country, Molly Ivins finally put together a book. Molly Ivins Can t Say That, Can She? was on the New York Times bestseller list for over twelve months. The field about her was strewn with the wounded carcasses of the Bushwazee, members of the Texas Legislature, and assorted other scoundrels, while the state of Texas, the democratic process, and Ann Richards had never looked better. Well, as they often say in Amarillo, Plus ca change, plus c est la meme chose. Nothin but Good Times Ahead is Molly Ivins s second collection, and she hasn t stopped callin em as she sees em. But this time around she s had for material the only human activity that could possibly give Texas local politics a run for its money (not to mention our money!) - the 1992 presidential campaign. From the early battles of the Democratic pygmies to the Clinton campaign s bimbo eruptions, from Bush s bathos to the Republican National Convention, and from one end of H. Ross Perot to the other, it was a rare year for Molly s brand of political reporting. At the same time, Molly has had to cope with the vicissitudes of being a bestselling arthur, several months of unemployment after the death of the Dallas Times Herald, and the usual truckloads of tough talk, byplay, and backroom deals among the 181 miscreants, Bible-thumpers, indictees, and occasional honest men and women Texans have elected to govern them. Nothin but Good Times Ahead does more than its part in the battle to inject common sense, quick wit, and wicked humor into American politics. Seller Inventory # BTE9780679754886
