Veteran columnist Molly Ivins, a rare and highly irreverent Texas liberal, is back with a collection of columns gathered from a rich and varied career covering some of the best source material a writer with a knack for whimsy could wish for: politicians. In Who Let the Dogs In, Ivins offers her thoughts on politicos from the Reagan era through the administration of George W. Bush (whom she first nicknamed "Shrub" way back in his early Texas days). Honest disclosure - I have always loved reading Molly Ivins, and this book is no exception. No matter what your political view, you have to admit she's an entertaining writer. And she makes you think.

She was a voice of reason in a bitter political climate. I wish I could have known her, and am sad that she died too soon.

A very good book from near the end of Molly Ivins' career and life; she died too young and is needed now as much as ever. This is a funny read, but at the same time, I found myself feeling sad and discouraged as I thought over the events of the last several years in American politics and our economy, environment, and culture. She was a voice of reason in a bitter political climate. Jun 21, 2010 Katy rated it really liked it.

Ross Perot, Tom DeLay, Ann Richards, Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, and the current governor of Texas, who is known as Rick “Goodhair” Perry.Following close on the heels of her phenomenally successful Bushwhacked and containing an up-to-the-minute Introduction for the campaign season, Who Let the Dogs In? is political writing at its best.From the Hardcover edition.

What plot? This isn't a novel. It's just a load of information and fun about all the politicians she covered over a 20 year period. You'll recognize most of them, or want to know more about those you don't know. As with all of her books, it's a hoot. Loved it.

This book is essentially a "greatest hits" album; it's a retrospective on Molly's best political commentary over the last 20-30 years of her life (running from Reagan to W. Bush). Any long-time fan will have seen most or all of these columns before. But they ARE a selection of her best work, and that makes it quite good indeed. Don't read it if you've read everything she's ever read & don't want reruns, but other than that, highly recommended.

Honest disclosure -- I have always loved reading Molly Ivins, and this book is no exception. No matter what your political view, you have to admit she's an entertaining writer. And she makes you think. This is a compilation of her columns writing during the George W. Bush administration. She knew George Bush and his family, and although she is critical of him and his administration, she is never unkind. This is definitely enjoyable reading.
