It’s been years since I’ve watched more than a brief clip of a nighttime talking heads show. I just can’t do it without my eyes rolling to the back of my head. Tonight, with pretty much nothing else on, I found myself watching Rachel Maddow. I have to say – she’s fantastic, and seriously a breath of fresh air. She’s funny and extremely fair to her guests (her interview with Ron Paul was particularly interesting to me, as it demonstrated a very real willingness to understand her ideological opposites), yet more than willing to call bullshit on the type of things, like terrorism, where the Beltway Establishment usually treat the Cheney wing of the GOP as if they were oracles of some sort. It also helps that when she’s calling bullshit, she’s pretty damn funny doing it.
