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."

Molly, where are you when we need you?! And even worse, just change a few names and these could be re-run. Read full review

User Review  - Emily - Goodreads

Ivins's Texas humor kept me amused through a good deal of jury duty. It's both funny and depressing to see how much we're still fighting the same political battles of 1992-1993. Read full review
