There's good news for those that rage at the  evening news, shake their heads at Washington's  business-as-usual, or watch as politicians carom from  social crisis to political crisis to economic  crisis: Dennis Miller is back, and he means to shake the  nation by its lapels.

Miller respects no  boundaries. Whether the subject is dope-addled  baseball players who can no longer swing their bats,  do-nothing politicians who devote their careers to  creating meaningful sound bites, or the nation's  resigned acceptance of violence as a way of  American life, these thematically arranged monologues are  funny and angry. More significantly, they shatter  the conventions of comedy by simultaneously making  us laugh, think, and seethe.
