Did you know that House Republicans go on a retreat every year? (I imagine Democrats do the same, by the way.) Do they serve tea sandwiches and practice trust falls? Who knows. On last night’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Maddow discussed one of the scheduled retreat activities we do know about (which took place between between archery… More »
A Fox TV anchor in Cincinatti, Ohio, named Tricia Macke has apologized for calling MSNBC talk show host Rachel Maddow “an angry young man.” Gurl, you do not mess with my Rachel. [After Ellen]

I must admit that I got a little squee-ish when I saw Rachel Maddow devote a couple of minutes at the top of her show last night to the Hey Girl, Ryan Gosling meme and its various incarnations. Of course, the purpose was to talk about the latest version of the meme, “Paul Ryan Gosling,” More »
“Don’t lie–you have to remember it! The single best thing about honesty is that it requires no follow-up. Every lie is something you’re responsible for as long as you want to keep it going, and few of them merit that mental storage space.”

Because she’s a lesbian.
That, sadly, seems to be the logic behind The Daily Caller’s daily tally of how many times Rachel Maddow has said the words “vagina” or “vaginal” on her show. No, I’m not making this up: someone at the conservative news site kept track of the 58 V-bombs that Maddow dropped… More »
UPDATE, 3:40: Governor McDonnell has released a statement regarding the bill, posted after the jump.
Virginia’s Republican Governor Robert McDonnell has come to his senses: he is dropping his support for a scary-ass bill requiring women seeking an abortion to first have a medically unnecessary “transvaginal ultrasound,” aka to be vaginally penetrated with… More »
Rachel Maddow isn’t just good at looking cute and making politicians look like idiots. She is also an amateur mixologist. (Good skill to have if that whole MSNBC hosting gig falls through.) Last night on “Late Night,” Rachel taught Jimmy Fallon how to do “pickleback” shots, which is one shot each of Jameson and pickle… More »
“A constant 14 percent of the feedback I get is hate mail. But a 100 percent of that 14 percent hate mail is about what what I look like: ‘I hate you not because of what you said, or some argument or some position that you have, but I hate you because you’re Rachel MadCOW,… More »
I’m finding myself strangely attracted to Rachel Maddow on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter, despite my otherwise-lifelong heterosexual inclinations. Anyone else familiar with this feeling? [The Hollywood Reporter] … More »
Rachel Maddow is awesome. One of the many reasons I think this is because she is openly gay and often gives shout-outs to her partner, Susan Mikula. In an interview with The Guardian that ran yesterday, Rachel talked a little bit about being one of the few out gay news anchors. She said, “I’m sure… More »
I love Rachel Maddow as much as the next bi-curious liberal with a cable subscription. But still, I can’t compete with this guy. Country musician Marc Black penned “I Love You Rachel Maddow,” an ode to his favorite MSNBC host, her hair, and the way she stands up to Pat Buchanan. Hopefully… More »
I prefer scary movies that involve poltergeists, so this scary flick will be a shock to my system.

Fashion inspiration can come from unexpected sources: a poem, an old picture of your great aunt, maybe a certain song about short skirts and long jackets. I once created an outfit based solely on the exquisite color combination found in my iced caramel macchiato.
Rachel Maddow has become one of these unexpected inspirations. More »
Speaking on a radio show this morning, Louisiana Senator David Vitter made a joke about how MSNBC host Rachel Maddow looked like a woman “a long time ago.” (Maddow is openly lesbian, wears her hair short, and favors a more masculine way of dressing.)
