Bushwhacked: Life in George W. Bush's America

Bushwhacked: Life in George W. Bush's America - Molly Ivins, Lou Dubose I was crouched next to Molly Ivins in the elevator going to her own book reading 20 years ago. I didn't know what she looked like but I thought: this very strong woman is preening for the whole elevator and I have no idea why. She had the misfortune to work as an editorial writer in Texas, which elected George W. twice before foisting him on everyone else's spleen.

Favourite Molly Ivins quote? "I liked George Bush's speech. But I thought it was better in the original German"
