Political Analyst Rachel Maddow to Deliver 2010 Commencement Address
Smith College News Office ^ | February 17, 2010 | Smith College

Posted on 02/26/2010 12:11:28 PM PST by LurkedLongEnough

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. – Rachel Maddow, a political analyst and media host who rose to national prominence after launching her career on local radio, will be the speaker at Smith College’s 132nd commencement ceremony on Sunday, May 16, at 10 a.m. in the campus Quadrangle. Maddow and four other accomplished women will receive honorary degrees prior to the address.

On her national television program, Maddow daily analyzes top headlines from the worlds of politics, current events, sports, science, health, crime and the absurd. Her critically acclaimed program, titled “The Rachel Maddow Show,” airs on MSNBC. Her interviews with newsmakers have been described as spotlighting “the headlines, and the politics behind the headlines.”

About a year after launching her MSNBC show in April 2008, Maddow was nominated for the Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in News and Information. She was also recently included in the list of openly gay media professionals in The Advocate’s “Forty under 40” and received a Gracie Award from the American Women in Radio and Television.

A contest launched Maddow’s career in 2004. As the winner of a challenge for a new on-air personality in Holyoke, Mass., she addressed listeners for the first time. Meeting with success at the local level, she soon joined the newly created Air America and, a year later, MSNBC.

Maddow earned a degree in public policy from Stanford University in 1994, was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship, and earned a doctor of philosophy degree from Oxford University.

A left wing, America-hating, lesbian, spoiled rich kid will address a bunch of spoiled, overpriveledged young women. Why should anyone care?

I can't look at her without thinking she has constant PMS.

Why do they call it PMS? because Mad Cow Disease was already taken.

I didn’t realize she had those academic credentials. Pretty much the same credentials as the idiots who have ruined the economy and are on track to wreck the USA. Right.

I find all of that very difficult to believe. Must be ideology based.

Madcow at Smith is analogous to Br’er Rabbit in the briar patch. I understand that Smith is at least 50% lesbian.
