Doc Soup: Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins
"Polarizing people is a good way to win an election and a good way to wreck a country." - Molly Ivins
With razor-sharp wit, journalist and firebrand Molly Ivins spoke truth to power and took on the good ol' boy corruption in the political establishment. Brilliant and quintessentially Texan, she was one of the lone liberals in a deep-red state and became the first woman to co-edit the Texas Observer. Her blistering way with words was feared by the political elite, but her refreshing critique and big heart garnered a die-hard following from around the country. This up-close and personal biography brings to life her repartee and political wisdom—both of which strike a chord given today's political climate—and asks us to shake up the system just like Molly would.
