I don't know why it has taken me so long to discuss this issue, but I have decided to remedy this situation forthwith. I am so loving Rachel Maddow.
I have not had the pleasure of listening to her Air America radio program (oh, but I will), but I did have a number of opportunities to watch her smart and incisive commentary on MSNBC during the primaries and the general election. I was also one of those individuals who secured a place in front of a television to watch the debut of her prime time show.
Watching Maddow's television show is like having a conversation with a clever and wickedly intelligent friend. I find myself nodding my head in agreement continually. I adore the snarky quality of her commentary, and I laugh openly at many of the idiosyncrasies of politics that Maddow points out on each show. Her show is pitch perfect for my political perspective.
Love Her!! You feel smarter too now, don't you? Vain to deny it.
