    Comedian and activist Margaret Cho's righteous comic rage finds its targets with pinpoint accuracy and is meant not only to entertain but also to champion the civil liberties and raise awareness for the social injustices that are her impassioned causes, among them freedom of expression, gay rights, racial discrimination, and capital punishment. It is this blend of comedy and fervor that awakens the devotion of her legions of fans and permeates this book.

    Story

    Once a funny, fresh and original voice, it seems Margaret Cho has run out of new things to say.

    I was disappointed in the material Ms. Cho selected for this rant on her naive, idealistic political views. I should have read the reviews before purchasing. Now I read them and agree that she is basically pandering to the interests of her core group of fans, marginalizing the rest of us--those who are not gay or people of color.

    This ends up sounding like a lot of childish whining. I found myself actually feeling irritated and offended by what almost begins to sound like reverse racism. It's not funny at all.

    I also found the audio did not sound "true" to 40+ year-old Cho's real voice. She sounded like a hyper 25 year-old. I felt the musical breaks inserted as punctuation at the end of her paragraphs were unnecessary. They gave it kind of an NPR "think on this for a moment" appeal, but there was nothing really to think about.
