Why did it take me so long to decide that Rachel Maddow is an idiot not worth the aggravation she gives me, given the option of listening to Jeff Farias or bad music instead? I fear it’s actually that Maddow has gotten worse since becoming a darling of cable TV ‘news’.

Even when the passage of days ends Rachel’s insistence on blaming Barack Obama for Hillary Clinton’s poop-tossing, there will remain the constant failure to get to the point, and the smarminess of the delivery of that point, and there will remain the obvious retort to her point: No shit, Sherlock!

A problem with doing your doctorate in prison AIDS policies is that, if graduate school is anything like undergraduate school in such topics, you can easily bullshit your way through it without realizing you are bullshitting; moreover you have been trained, unwittingly, in skills for bullshitting. You are left in perfect condition for television punditry, if you choose that route, and then you may never be able to recover your full humanity.

Poor Rachel! :)
