    "Amusing and thought-provoking"

    I was reminded many, many times while reading this book of why I am voting like I will vote this fall. This book covers many of the political highlights and hijinks of the last couple of decades. Ivins is an admitted liberal who can look past the politics of an individual to their merits as a leader. Skewering Democrats and Republicans alike when they deserve it, her sharp commentary is right on target so many times. This is laugh out loud reading.

    "Wonderful look back!"

    This book is a great look back at Molly Ivins' experiences (so far) in American politics. Libs can rejoice at her early recommendations for those disenchanted by Reagan's reelection and compare it to the current mood regarding Bush's reelection. A great overview of all her work, "Who Let the Dogs" gives a great overview of Ivins' work, including biting satire and criticism of those in office (from Reagan to Clinton) and touching obits. Really powerful tribute to a living legend of Washington journalism!

    "Molly at her best!"

    Molly had her way with words as she dissected the shenanigans of politicians and those of the Texas variety in particular. She didn't mince words, and she was a truth and story teller of the finest degree. I miss Molly and her insight. Molly would have had a ball with the 2008 campaign and election. In this book, she laid out the issues of the election of 2000. We are facing the same political snafus and stupidity today. I imagine that she and her good friend, former Texas Governor Anne Richards are probably looking down on all of us and having a rip roaring time laughing their heads off as only they could do.

    "I'll Look For More By Ms. Ivins"

    Molly Ivins is a thrill to listen to, she's a great reader and a better writer. It was entertaining and truthful. I've almost finished it, but have to complain about the selection of articles: I can't remember the last time I've waded through so many obituaries! Yes, she uses them to both celebrate the passing of people she is proud to have known and as a jumping-off point to bring up an issue, but it gets pretty repetitive listening to ANOTHER obituary and ANOTHER one and ANOTHER one and >JESUSMAKEITSTOP!< ANOTHER obituary! I'm worn out from all the dead people!

    Still a great listen, I'll go looking for Bushwhacked, next.

    "What a Hoot!"

    This was my first Molly Ivins book. I loved her candor and expressions. Who could come up with "If you put his brains in a bee it would still fly backwards?" This book if full of them. Molly is smack dab in the tradition Mark Twain. The narrator (Anna Fields) is fantastic - she could BE Molly Ivins.
