Bushwhacked: Life in George W. Bush's America

Random House
hardcover
$24.95

Need more evidence of the Republican Party's hostility toward the common man? Pick up the latest tag team release from Molly Ivins and Lou Dubose. The pair teamed up just before the 2000 election on the excellent book Shrub: The Short But Happy Political Life of George W. Bush, which detailed Dubya's performance as governor of Texas and how his life of extreme privilege shaped his politics. In Bushwhacked, Ivins and Dubose illustrate how the president has blurred the line between corporate America and the federal government, with disasterous consequences across the board. Like their previous effort, this one should be both hilarious and terrifying.
