Margaret Cho has been on one raucous roll lately. Last week, after paparazzi photos surfaced of a certain pop star's period stain, Cho penned an in-your-face ode to her own "hot menses mess" (as well as her bloodstained mattress). Now, she's taking on the presidential primary and the assumption that women of color will vote according to either their race or their gender:

"Why are white men allowed to look at the issues and judge for themselves and the rest of us are expected to take sides grade school style? That is racist and sexist and dumb ... Guess what America! People of color and women think! Just like white men! For reals!!!"
