Molly Ivins was a keen and trenchant observer of the American political scene. Her razor sharp wit and cogent writing generated legions of fans. Based in Austin, her nationally syndicated column appeared in more than three hundred newspapers. In addition to compilations of her brilliant, hilarious liberal columns, she wrote with Lou Dubose Shrub: The Short But Happy Political Life of George W. Bush and Bushwhacked: Life in George W. Bush’s America. She was working on a book documenting the Bush administration’s assault on the Bill of Rights when she died on January 31, 2007. She was a strong supporter of AR. We will miss her.
