  • January 2, 2015 - January 31, 2015


    A dyed-in-the-wool liberal from deep in the heart of Texas, the unsinkable Molly Ivins’ rapier wit made her one of America’s highest-regarded political columnists, satirists, and beloved rabble-rousers.  Red Hot Patriot weaves personal anecdotes with Molly’s unforgettable humor and wisdom, celebrating her courage and tenacity – even when a complacent America wasn’t listening.

    Red Hot Patriot stands as a mini-monument to the whimsically unpredictable glories of the Firstrolex sea-dweller replica Amendment.”  — Washington Post
