I Told You So is a hilarious, bittersweet, and politically acute survival guide. In collected columns and routines, Kate Clinton gleefully details personal coping techniques tested over a lifetime. They’re perfectly suited for political and cultural upheaval: wildcatting for democracy, curbing your cynicism, and changing the climate. Read them and you’ll never be voted off the island.
 
Clinton’s new collection spans refreshingly disparate topics: sexual hypocrisy and gay marriage; girls gone wild and boys gone to war; Hillary Clinton and U.S. politics; Obama props and prop hates; baptism and waterboarding, as well as intelligent design, families of choice, and even bee colony collapses. With intriguing titles such as “The Sistine Shusher,” “Lights out on Bush,” and “The Closet and the Confessional,” the essays in the book are classic Clinton—provocative, thoughtful, and edgy.
 
As a humorist for over twenty-five years, Clinton believes that making light—light enough to see and light enough to move—is what sustains us. What unites the essays is a Möbius strip of humor intended not to dissipate outrage but rather to motivate action.
