AUSTIN, Texas (AP)–Best-selling author and columnist Molly Ivins, the sharp-witted liberal who skewered the political establishment and referred to President George W. Bush as “Shrub,” died Wednesday after a long battle with breast cancer. She was 62.

David Pasztor, managing editor of the Texas Observer, confirmed her death.

The writer, who made a living poking fun at Texas politicians, whether they were in her home base of Austin or the White House, revealed in early 2006 that she was being treated for breast cancer for the third time.
