Yesterday, MSNBC announced that one of my favoritest political commentatorists, Rachel Maddow, would be receiving her own show on the network, just after Countdown with Keith Olbermann.
And she even made a brief appearance to Olbermann's show to celebrate…
Now, you may guess — because Maddow already hosts her own radio show on the liberal cement shoe Air America and generally responds to news items with some modicum of rationality — that this is somehow proof of my ridiculously inobjective liberalness. But you'd be wrong.
Actually, it's proof of my sexistness. I happen to have a pretty big crush on Rachel Maddow. If someone were to fit her with a pair of glasses and send her back in time to report from Ground Zero with silt in her hair, I think she'd blow my previous journalistic crush, Ashleigh Banfield, out of the water.
And, you know what? I don't think she's married or anything. She seems to have been living with her best girl friend for a while now, probably while the two of them wait for the right men to come along.
I think I might actually have a shot.
