Ah, yes. It wasn't long ago when certain fanatic members of the homo club went ballistic over NBC's neglect in covering Matthew Mitcham's gay life at the Beijing Olympics. Thank goodness Gary Zenkel, President of NBC Olympics, apologized for such a stupid and senseless omission. We fags really needed to see those cute boys kiss.

 

And now we have super-star lesbian, Rachel Maddow, shooting ratings stars faster and longer than any porn cum shot at none other than MSNBC. The first openly gay American to win a Rhodes scholarship, Rachel Maddow is taking NBC's cable news division by storm.

 

I'm not fond of lefty wackos any more than I'm fond of right wing nut crackers but I have to say, I'm falling for Rachel Maddow. She's got major star quality and I see a great future for her.

 

Congratulations to Rachel and NBC. This is what I call progress.

Recently I have been viewing and listening to MSNBC and to Rachael's segment. ...had no idea about her sexuality but feel great in having read what the writer of this thread has presented here! Thanks, man!

 

After this year's election, I shall make it a point to listen to and view what Ms. M... (not Bette) has to give us on a daily basis. :-)

One of the things I enjoy about Rachel Maddow (the few times I see her) is that unlike most partisan hacks she's genuinely interested in having a sane and balanced discussion. (And she's entertaining and good-humored while doing so.)

 

During both the RNC and DNC, she shared the stage/camera with Pat Buchanan. They disagreed on ideology rather vigorously, but never from a position of personal derision or disrespect. It was genuinely thoughtful and equal discussion, and kudos to both for pulling it off.

 

We need more of that.

She likes a "sane and balanced discussion?" Give me a break. She never has anyone on her show who disagrees with her. It's an echo chamber. Neither does Olbermann. Everyone he has on his show agrees with him. These kinds of hacks don't want dissent or a "balanced" discussion.

 

I don't like the nuts on Fox any better than the nuts on MBNBC. But I'll at least acknowledge that both O'Reilly and Hannity have on people of all views who they like to debate.

 

The same thing simply doesn't happen on Maddow or Olbermann's show. I wonder what they are afraid of?

And the above reasons are some of why I no longer watch tv. Well ok I'll watch the Food Network but really honestly nothing else.

"She never has anyone on her show who disagrees with her...I wonder what they are afraid of?"

 

It's always disturbing to discover how many people are misinformed (and believe their own made up bullshit).

 

Rachel Maddow has openly discussed the difficulty her show has trying to book conservative neo-cling-ons. So far, many refuse to accept her invitation. One can't help but wonder what Republicans fear. So far, Pat Buchanan is the only one willing to enter her ring and, considering I never liked Buchanan, I enjoy them together.

 

She recently nabbed Bush's former speechwriter, David Frum, and the interview was riveting. Frum tried to bully and ambush Rachel, accusing her of contributing to the "low tone" of today's political discourse. She immediately challenged Frum on his "false equivalencies," respectfully reminding him that her sense of humor and sarcasm cannot be compared to "kill him!" Some Republicans always seem to want to blame someone else for failure.

 

My sources tell me her (elitist) Rhodes scholar education is an intimidating weapon and Republicans are afraid of it. Plus, everyone knows Republicans are known to fight dirty. They openly hate MSNBC (see RNC convention) and their unspoken boycott is well documented.

 

Republicans won't give Rachel Maddow the time of day, yet. I expect this will change as her ratings rise. The only reason Bill O'Reilly (who is a pompous, blowhard pig) got Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama: ratings. At a certain point, it's simply stupid to ignore the numbers. And, yes, I watched.

 

"I no longer watch tv. Well ok I'll watch the Food Network"

 

Yes, and Rick and Derek cancelled their TV service (but Rick manages to watch Lucy anyway).

 

Learning how to cook may find you a hungry husband but will it make you more interesting and seductive? Knowledge is power and Madonna and Rachel Ray are not the answer.

 

"Who cares if she's a lesbian?"

 

I care. I care that she's an "OUT" lesbian. I care that she's a smart lesbian. I care that she's a successful lesbian. I care that NBC had the balls to hire and give a podium to a smart, successful, and OUT lesbian. Rachel Maddow has bigger balls than Anderson Cooper. I like big balls, therefore, I care.

C-Span 1,2,3, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, PBS, (Fox intermittently and infrequently) are the television news or informational channels that I view and listen to. Of all of the above mentioned networks-- I cannot watch too much of the so-called "Fox news!"

 

Why do some writers here like to call folks out of their names? Could they (the writers) not relate their abhorrence or dislike about an individual by venting less to no name calling and still get their points across?

You forgot to mention Glen Beck - there's no way anyone can get on his show unless they agree with everything he says. It's so obvious it's pathetic.

Rockhard is agreeing with me. We have officially reached the end of days.

Just for clarity, he actually works for NBC. (It SHOULDN'T mean anything, but I bet it's easier to book him.)

"Yet he just can't stay away, and I find that endearing."

 

I'm glad you're endeared, dear, but let's face facts: I didn't post here for one year. I'm not sure how much time constitutes "can't stay away" but I can assure you, I totally CAN stay away. I'm not a sex addict and I'm not addicted to the MC. Frankly, I view it as a love/hate thing. There are some aspects of the MC I love and many I hate. Such is life.

 

"Rockhard is agreeing with me. We have officially reached the end of days."

 

Nice way to pat yourself on the back but, since rumors say you've had a rough year, I'll take the high road. The truth is, I'm the OP of this thread, therefore, it appears you are agreeing with me.

 

As for reaching "the end of days," I'm going to bite my tongue in deference to your health.

 

"Just for clarity, he (Pat Buchanan) actually works for NBC."

 

Nobody put a gun to Buchanan's head and forced him to participate on the Rachel Maddow show. The truth is, Maddow credits Buchanan for her career in television because Buchanan requested her years ago when he hosted a show for MSNBC. Buchanan and Maddow have a friendly relationship. "I like debating things with Pat," Maddow said. "He's funny and quick and intellectually coherent, even when his views are totally toxic." Just to be clear.

"My health is fine"

 

That's what they all say or haven't you heard, the brain plays tricks.

 

"What other lies ya got for us?"

 

My dear queen troll, I'd be very careful with the "l" word if I were you. Got a mirror handy, Miss Multiple Usernames? You can only fool a fool and don't you feel lucky that this board still attracts a few fools. Makes you feel powerful, doesn't it? Go back to sleep, dear. Your beauty rest isn't working.

I have been posting on this site for a very long time (during long periods where things were much more rocky here), but can not remember anyone posting comments speculating on another MC member's health. The above comment was a a follow up to RockHard's own statement that rumors say your have had a rough year.

 

Perhaps you should take another year or two off, RockHard.

Clearly, alanm (and maybe a few others), missed the joke. Considering how many reasonable minded people have advised me to NOT take this board seriously, there may be one or two left who still do. Charming.

 

The act of "speculating" does not exist in this thread. But, then again, considering the serious subject of AIDS and its direct relationship to the act of purchasing fake love, I can see why cloudy, slower, older brains might misinterpret my sense of humor in this ever so sensitive arena.

 

Pardon me while I spoil my punch line. I view deej-the-troll as just another Sybil with her infamous collection of multiple usernames (you know, the ones she uses to maintain control of the board and its members). Sharper tools in this sarcasm box know that "health" in the context of this thread is referring to Baby Jane mental.

 

Regardless of lost respect and patience, I would NEVER mention "health" in a serious discussion here that offered any manner of malicious intention.
