    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.

    Overall

    If you get this book looking for the comedy of Margaret Cho, you may be disappointed. While her sardonic wit is certainly in evidence, Cho has gone the route of Al Franken, switching from comedy to political commentary. While Franken uses facts and research as a basis for his writings, Cho relies on pure passion. It does make for an entertaining "read," but I think her comedy did a much better job of exposing the ridiculous and ignorant side of racists, sexists and homophobes than this book does.
