You Got to Dance with Them What Brung You ebook

by Molly Ivins


I first read Molly Ivins when I came across her book titled "Shrub". Damn funny and insightful I wish more people had read it before the 2000 election. If you haven't read Molly, you don't know Texas! Or The Shrub.

But this collection of your essays is a small reminder of your biting wit and spot on analysis of the absurdity of American and Texas politics. Well, to late, and unfortunately she wasn't around for the election in 2016. But, after reading "You Got to Dance with Them What Brung You" I'll bet it would have been funny, satiric, and have the Donald in the corner, crying! Yeah, a lot of us would have loved it! If you haven't yet, read her books and see for yourself.

Molly Ivins' political columns are a treasure. But this collection of Clinton-era columns loses something with the years. Reading them in 2013, these columns don't seem as humorous and pointed as they would have at the time they were written. One person found this helpful. As with everything she ever wrote, You Got to Dance with Them What Brung You is informative and hilarious. She was so witty; I grieve for all the books she never got to write.

Ah, well.....Molly Ivins! What's not to love! Her delightful sense of humor liberally (of course) interlaced with her ability to hone in on either personalities or problems and expose the pomposity AND absurdity of specific individuals and deflate them with Ivins wit is sorely and dearly missed. She went right to the heart of the matter and as we wrestle with Washingtonians, our "Leges," and all things political AND trivial, I cannot help but wonder: "What would Molly say?" Dang, Girl! How we need your voice to cut through all the K-Rap!

Molly Ivins is simply the finest Bleeding Heart Liberal who ever lived - and the sharpest writer as well.
Her views on Texas and Texas politics will make you laugh til you cry - and then will make you think. The wit & wisdom of Molly Ivins is legendary. I reread all her books regularly. She's been gone a few years now, but her keen political views, humor, and firm defense of the First Amendment are just as relevant today.

Received in excellent condition.
Molly Ivins is a wonderful writer, funny and on point. Her assessment of politics was way ahead of her time. Lots of good stories in this book in short bites that were easy to read and stimulating to think about.
