When I saw this show last night I had hoped that the You Tube video would be available online so that I could share Rachel’s genius for explaining anything with wit and intelligence beyond any newscaster on TV today.
This particular opening segment of the Rachel Maddow Show expounds on my Think Progress post from a couple of days ago…
Unlike the subject in the previous post, Rachel Maddow is a well respected “truth-teller” who people from all sides of the political spectrum admire…
Rachel Maddow was nominated for a Grammy Award. The nominations wereannounced on Wednesday.
Maddow was nominated for Best Spoken Word Album with her book, “Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power.” She shares the category nomination with Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama.
A number of politicians have been nominated and subsequently won Grammy Awards in this category before. President Barack Obama won in 2008 with his book “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.” He also won in 2006 with his book “Dreams From My Father.”
Clinton picked up the prestigious award one year earlier—in 2005—with his book “My Life.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also won in this category in 1997 with her book “It Takes A Village.”
The 2013 Grammy Awards will take place on Feb. 10 on CBS.
This video from The Rachel Maddow Show is priceless, from beginning to end. I really like the way Rachel dissects Right Wing “bull-pucky” as Rachel would say.
H/t: Democratic Underground
I enjoyed this segment of The Rachel Maddow Show, last night. In fact I enjoyed it so much I just had to share it with you.
The gist of the segment: Rachel caught Mitt Romney in a bold-faced lie the day he went to Solyndra to discuss President Obama’s involvement with the now defunct company.
Now, to the video…
Well, it’s about time. Progressives have been waiting a long time for just an inkling of some intestinal fortitude from the Democrats for a long time.
Yep, $700 billion additional dollars to the deficit!
The White House has released a very easy and simple explanation about the tax cut fight in congress.
Remember, the Republicans will not even discuss the tax cuts for small businesses unless the Dems include the Bush tax cuts for the rich in their plan…
Rachel Maddow said that the opposition to the proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero could be the reason behind a wave of anti-Muslim incidents around the country.
On her MSNBC show Monday, Maddow ran down a list of the many different anti-Muslim attacks that have taken place in recent weeks — from the possible arson at a mosque in Tennessee to the stabbing of a Muslim cabdriver in New York to protests against mosques in states around America.
She said that it was not possible to tie the incidents together in any concrete pattern, but speculated that the fierce opposition to the center near Ground Zero may have unleashed a wave of anti-Muslim sentiment across the country:
“Maybe the tie between them is the opponents, who claim to be against the Park51 center near the World Trade Center site solely as a matter of real estate…maybe the thing that ties them altogether is them…if it’s only about the specific location of that one Islamic center, then how come we’re not hearing anything from them at all about all about the other mosques being shot up and protested? Are Temecula and Fresno also just too darn close to Ground Zero?”
