...is Rachel Maddow hung over?

That will be all.

...Rachel Maddow is getting her own show on MSNBC (replacing Jon Stewart's straight news cipher Dan Abrams)!

Aside from the fact that RM is 100 kinds of freaking awesome, she is the person who made me realise how important it is to have people who could be you as role models in a job you could see yourself doing in the future.

Because although I know more about politics and world relations than my friends, and can make them laugh when I clue them in, the people who do those things on television are a bunch of shriveled east coast white men. (Or, you know, the women on Faux News, who are bed-tanned, non-biodegradable suicide blondes with no native intelligence or informed opinions.) But, BWZOMG, Rachel Maddow! An intelligent, informed, un-plasticized woman is finally getting her own show during primetime! (S, I hope you are reading this...)

Full exposure: I really liked the political segments of Verdict--even more than Countdown (because Olbermann's ghei obsession with O'RLY? got a bit tiresome, oh, several years ago)--but if they're gonna replace him with RM, then I have to get behind it.

That will be all.

Scene: It is 12:48 am. Ma soeur, mon pere, and moi are all sitting quietly in the living room, reading books. )

We then had a long discussion about Highlander: The Series, which I'm too tired to transcribe.

That will be all.

ETA: This transcription omits the line, "We still have to watch the He-Man Christmas Special," because I don't remember at which point ma soeur uttered it.

...but after watching him refuse to allow Jon Stewart to even ask him questions--by talking over Stewart?

Fuck McCain.

Anyone who wants to be president so badly that he's willing to spew White House-approved bullshit on command with his ass in the air for the taking deserves neither my pity nor the office.

That will be all.

Hurrah

For the utter lovefest that was the Colbert-O'Reilly cultural exchange night.

I don't think I've laughed this hard in months.

Watch/Download NOW, if you know what's good for you.

...and land in another dimension, where it will be eaten by dogs.

Family Guy takes on Silver Ring Thing, and it is a true thing of beauty.

FWIW, I was also subjected to an abstinence only mis-information program while I was in high school. One that, incidentally, violates the separation of church and state.

If there's one thing I despise, it's someone forcing their fucked-up, pseudo-Christianity down my throat.

That will be all.
