A News Goddess

"Maddow is one of the few left-liberal women to bust open the world of TV punditry, which has made icons of right-wing commentators like Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin. Unlike her beautiful, bilious conservative female counterparts or the cocksure boys-on-the-bus analysts, however, Maddow didn't get here by bluster and bravado but with a combination of crisp thinking and galumphing good cheer. Remarkably, this season's discovery isn't a glossy matinee idol or a smooth-talking partisan hack but a PhD Rhodes scholar lesbian policy wonk who started as a prison AIDS activist." (by Rebecca Traister, The Nation.)

She's not a Barbie doll.  She's not all make-up and perfect, wavy hair.  She's real.  And she ****** Pat Buchanan off.  She doesn't hold back. And she's flippin' hilarious.  She's got common sense and uses that on her show.  She is officially my second favorite news anchor.  (Anderson Cooper is still in the lead.)

I am in love with Rachel Maddow. lol

Nicely stated, mystic.

I WAY AGREE. Rachel is smart, funny and direct. She's one of the best on radio and TV. Rachel brings the level of editorial way up! She's a great researcher, and brings history outcome and past behavior into her editorials on our politicians. Woman Power!

I'm watching her right now!!

I love her too! I'm watching MSNBC right now waiting for her show to come on :)
