Skip to comments.True Twit, Part 1: Is Rachel Maddow the New Face of MSNBC? A News Series Begins at NRB

Since Keith Olbermann threw his script at the camera and stomped off the set of MSNBC swearing and screaming, Rachel Maddow has been touted as the face of MSNBC. Howard Kurtz must have won some contest in hell because it appears he was forced to sit in on a planning meeting at The Rachel Maddow Show and then write about it. Theres nothing quite like lefty journalists writing slobbery love notes as news about other lefty journalists. (Although I use the term journalist lightly in Maddows case.)
It is part graduate seminar, part standup comedy, as Rachel Maddow challenges the 17 mostly female staffers on every suggestion for that nights show.
Im glad someone else noticed Maddows (sad) attempts at comedy. Whats puzzling is that MSNBCs new poster girl seems to want to ape Jon Stewart more than she wants to be an actual newsperson. Maddow made a total fool out of herself with juvenile snickering when she and Anderson Cooper dubbed the Tea Party as teabaggers and then claimed thats what the Tea Party called itself. She said the word teabag or teabagging at least 50 times during the following segment and could barely contain her mirth. The only thing I found funny about it was no straight person had ever heard of the obscure homosexual practice of teabagging until the likes of Maddow and Cooper brought it to our national attention. Thanks for that, by the way. We all now need brain bleach.

That is one ugly face.
Pray for America
A face only a Mother could love.
A blind Mother.
I don’t watch MSNBC in the evenings any more. Too many angry middle aged white men on there: Christ Matthews, Lawrence O’Donnell, Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz.
I've never seen the show, but if her staffers are described as "mostly female", I don't want to.
If Madcow is PMSNBC, they aren’t long for the world. The sooner they fold their tent, the better. I do enjoy them being the laughing-stocks of cable “news”, however. They do generate a continual stream of work that displays the idiocy and hypocrisy and transparency of the socialist left.
The best anchorman they have.
You can’t buy entertainment like this.
