Molly Ivins
Molly Ivins began her career in journalism as
the complaint department of the Houston Chronicle.
In 1970, she became co-editor of The Texas Observer,
which afforded her frequent fits of hysterical
laughter while covering Texas legislature. In 1976,
Ivins joined The New York Times as a political
reporter. The next year, she was named Rocky
Mountain Bureau Chief, chiefly because there was
no one else in the bureau. In 1982, she returned once
more to Texas, which may have indicated a masochistic
streak, and always had plenty to write about after that.
Her column was syndicated in more than three hundred
newspapers, and her freelance work
appeared in Esquire, The Atlantic Monthly, The
New York Times Magazine
, The Nation, and Harper's,
and other publications. Her first book, Molly
Ivins Can't Say That, Can She?
, spent more than a
year on the New York Times bestseller list. Her
books with Lou Dubose on George W. Bush--
Shrub, Bushwhacked, and Who Let the Dogs In?--
were national bestsellers. A three-time Pulitzer Prize
finalist, she claimed that her two greatest honors were that
the Minneapolis police force named its mascot pig
after her and that she was once banned from the
campus of Texas A&M. Molly Ivins died in the Winter of 2007.

Throughout her long career of “afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted,” the cause closest to Molly Ivins’s heart was working to protect the freedoms we all value. Sadly, today we’re living in a time when dissent is equated with giving aid to terrorists, when any of us can be held in prison without even knowing the charges against us, and when our constitutional rights are being interpreted by a president who calls himself “The Decider.

The dazzling, inimitable Molly Ivins is back, with her own personal Hall of Fame of America’s most amazing and outlandish politicians–the wicked, the wise, the witty, and the witless–drawn from more than twenty years of reporting on the folks who attempt to run our government (in some cases, into the ground).

A simultaneously rollicking and sobering indictment of the policies of President George W. Bush, Bushwhacked chronicles the destructive impact of the Bush administration on the very people who put him in the White House in the first place. Here are the ties that connected Bush to Enron, yes, but here, too, is the story of the woman who walks six miles to the unemployment office daily, wondering what happened to the economic security Bush promised.
