Terrific jazzy music introduces a five-star performance as Molly Ivins vocally skewers politicians of the last twenty years (Reagan, Bushes I and II, and Clinton), firing zinger after zinger across their bows. In her honeyed Texas twang she delivers an inexhaustible litany of devastating equal opportunity criticism, delightful if you share her views--distressing if you don't. She's always, always witty, discerning, humorous, classy, and wise. It's a tribute to her acute intelligence and wit that you'll think about the inequities, lies, and folderol she points out long after you've finished listening. L.C.
