rachel maddow ROCKS!Rachel Maddow was one of the few positive things that resulted from the Bush administration.

Oh, wait! I forgot about George Bush choking on a pretzel. So, thanks for that unforgettable slice of found comedy, you miserable little Neocon puppet.

I've been following Rachel Maddow's media career since wayyyy back in her Air America days. I found her radio show to have the perfect mix of information and impish humor. Each evening I'd break out my rowing machine and pump away for an hour as she whispered sweet words of Republican atrocities into my ears.

You can imagine my delight when she started showing up on cable news roundtables, exercising her massive brain muscles, occasionally filling in for Keith Olbermann when he was otherwise engaged fighting the oligarchs. When she finally got her own MSNBC gig I was kind of heartbroken because that meant the end of our radio dalliance, but my misery was short-lived as her TV program began being ported to iTunes each and every evening.

My informational trifecta used to be Olbermann, Maddow and Randi Rhodes in the afternoon but now it's just me and the goils as I've yet to develop a taste for Lawrence O'Donnell's delivery. Hopefully Keith's new TV program arrives sooner rather than later as I could use a good "Worst Person in the World" just about now. His FOK News Channel, though a welcome daily destination, offers some of his classic shtick and analysis but it's just an appetizer for the feast to come.


My iPod, see below, is overflowing with the origin of love. It's from a film called "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" and if you haven't seen this curiously delightful gender-bender, then please do. Great story, fabulous music. Plus a plot device cribbed directly from Aristotle's Plato Symposium on the origin of love. What more could you want?

Basically, if you like the youtube video, you'll like the movie.


Fox News Lies!Hey, guess what? Fox News still opens its immense gob and barfs up lie after lie.

If you don't watch it please request that your local cable provider remove them from your monthly bill by calling them about it at three in the morning.
