You got to dance with them what brung you : politics in the Clinton years by Molly Ivins( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

You Got to Dance with Them What Brung You brings together a first-class collection of smart, spirited, and fiercely funny writings. From the wild and woolly politics of her native Texas to the waffling in the Oval Office, Molly Ivins exposes the fatuous and hypocritical at all levels of public life. Whether she's writing about the 1996 presidential candidates ("Dole contributed perhaps the funniest line of the year with his immortal observation that tobacco is not addictive but that too much milk might be bad for us. The check from the dairy lobby must have been late that week"), conspiracy theorists ("Twenty-five years in the newspaper bidness have given me a fairly strong faith in the proposition that if you haven't read about it in The Daily Disappointment or seen it on the network news, it's probably not true"), or cultural trends ("I saw a restaurant in Seattle that specialized in latte and barbecue. Barbecue and latte. I came home immediately"), Molly takes on the issues of the day with her trademark good sense and inimitable wit
Who let the dogs in? : incredible political animals I have known by Molly Ivins( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The inimitable Molly Ivins' 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). Ivins takes us on a wild ride through two decades of political life, from Ronald Reagan, through Big George and Bill Clinton, to our current top dog, known to Ivins readers simply as Dubya. But she also writes hilariously, perceptively, and at times witheringly, of John Ashcroft, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, H. Ross Perot, Tom DeLay, Ann Richards, Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, and the current governor of Texas, known as Rick "Goodhair" Perry.--From publisher description
Bill of wrongs : the executive branch's assault on America's fundamental rights by Molly Ivins( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout her long career of "afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted," the cause closest to Molly Ivins's heart was protecting 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." Ivins got the idea for this book while touring America to speak out in defense of free speech. In her travels Ivins met ordinary people going to extraordinary measures to safeguard our liberties, and she intended this book to be a joyous celebration of those heroes. But during the Bush years, the project's focus changed as Ivins observed how dissent in the defense of liberties was characterized as treason by the Bush administration and its enablers.--From publisher description

The American Civil Liberties Union : a history( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For 80 years, one legal organization has supported the rights of the individual against the majority and the government, igniting rage in conservatives and liberals alike. That organization is the ACLU, and it has virtually molded our national ideal of liberty. Its history reads like a case study of freedom of expression and minority rights in the 20th century. This program, with commentary from Oliver North, Dave Barry, and Molly Ivins, traces the tumultuous history of that organization from its inception by founder Roger Baldwin, through dozens of legal challenges over the past century, including the Scopes trial, the 1930s labor strikes, Japanese internment, the HUAC hearings and blacklisting, the Vietnam war crimes trials, the American Nazi Party's bid to march in Skokie, Illinois, and others. Baldwin's story is interwoven throughout."--Website
