Uppity Women #18

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is such a tough act to follow. But Rachel Maddow holds her own every night on MSNBC. A relative newbie to broadcast journalism, Maddow began her career in liberal journalism as part of the vast left wing media conspiracy that was Air America. She joined MSNBC in 2008 and by August of 2008, after substitute host experience on Countdown with Keith Olbermann, had her own show. Describing herself as a 'national security liberal' and non-partisan, she has continued to assail the foolishness of both the Republicans and Democrats and call legislators and big business lobbies to task.

  1. I have such a crush on her. Not that I would stand any sort of chance, even if I weren't already married, but it doesn't really matter; it's not that sort of crush. It's just that every time I see her, I think: Damn. That's a helluva person, there.

  2. I could crush on Rachel, too, Michael. I just love her wry sense of humor and find her manner one of the most effective of the many show hosts out there. She and Jon Stewart are my two reportage crushes. :)
