Politics 101

There’s a definite reason why I love The Rachel Maddow Show so much. I grew up in the very Conservative South, and, while I figured out in my teens that Conservatism was wrong, I was never exposed to dissenting viewpoints so I could figure out exactly why I knew it was wrong.

Rachel is brilliant at explaining why and giving the history and statistics to prove her point. She is an actual Political Scientist.

I also enjoy other Liberals like John Fugelsang who are funny - and correct! - in their politics, but come far more from the gut rather than pure intellect.

Rachel is almost pure intellect. Funny, emotional, and righteous intellect, but intellect nonetheless.
