Rachel Maddow

So Rachel Maddow is getting her own show on MSNBC. Not only is it wonderful that we're getting another female voice among the high power pundits, but someone who is openly lesbian and liberal. Most astonishing is that we'll have someone in a high profile position who is an actual intellectual. It's becoming acceptable to show smart people in public and let them talk. Issues might actually be addressed, possibly even substantively. This could be the beginning of an actual political discourse in America. Oh please, oh please, oh please, oh please.
