So, it’s almost been a year since I have written anything for MaddowMania. Rest assured, my love for that sharp-tongued, liberal, flannel-donning policy wonk hasn’t ended, but to make a long story short, I had some shit to handle. However, I want to start back up now so I can cover an entire year of the clusterfuck of retarded known as the impending Presidential race. Just based on the way thinks look at present, this shit is gonna be FUN.
However, upon reflection, I realized compared to Hannah’s posts from when we started worshipping up in this piece, mine SUCK. Why? Because I don’t have pictures. I know that wasn’t my department when we started this, but MAN do they make a post. I can’t decide if this is because of our visual nature as people, or because of Maddow’s innate, intimidating beauty.
Oh, totally the latter.
Anywho, probably the most interesting part of the show last night, besides the crazy turkeys (seriously, look that up), was the hilarious assertion by the Republican party that they “don’t have time” to discuss the American Jobs Act. Why? Because limiting abortion is WAY more important. I think the funniest part for me was when a Republican actually had the nerve to say that the scariest place for a child in America is Planned Parenthood.
That’s funny, because I have been to Planned Parenthood, and there were children there. They seemed fine. They were even playing on a jungle gym.
Holy shit, that does look dangerous.
Anywho, silly Republicans aside, my personal favorite part of the episode was a tribute to Frank Kameny, civil rights hero, a trailblazer for the fight against Don’t Ask Don’t Tell by fighting discrimination of gays in the military, in 1957. Impressive, right? Not quite as impressive as this shirt Maddow was wearing when posing with Kameny.
After a google search and some thumbing, I saw Maddow wearing this shirt (or one like it) on Jay Leno! Seriously! Maddow, do me a solid and wear this shirt every day? I mean, it’s the least you can do for such a loyal fan. And the blue glasses? Nice touch. They can come too.
I don’t have a lot to say about last night’s episode, other than that I think
a)Maddow’s little fake Republican ad regarding incest was hilarious.
b)It is so adorable how awkward she 1)is getting complemented on her appearance and 2)with bad words.
That is just my warm up blog. I swear I am getting back in the game.
H: Chris Hayes hosting = gratuitous picture posting!
Seriously, Rachel. Please come back. HayesMania just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
H: Chris Hayes guest-hosting = gratuitous picture posting!
PS - Chris, I like you and all, but can we have Rachel back now? Please?
H: Chris Hayes seemed oddly off in his duties guest-hosting last night. And as we all know, guest host = picture post.
Bill Wolff guest-hosted again last night, which led to this awesome monologue about hypothetical awkward Facebook scenario #578:
But lest you think I’m trying to pass Bill off for the lovely Rachel herself, here she is! Conducting an interview with Thomas D’Agostino, head of the National Nuclear Security Administration (or as Rachel calls him, “Undersecretary to Saving the World”) and threatening those who stand in his way:
Oh Rachel. You’re so cute when you jokingly threaten to kill politicians…..you’re joking, right?
gratuitous picture post!
