Midwestern Endorsement: Rachel Maddow

I am a big Rachel Maddow fan. I have a feeling like I might have showered her with praise on the Midwestern Position before this post, but I must do it again.

Being a Rachel Maddow is quite a commitment. She has a show every night on MSNBC where she asks the tough questions, illustrates the nonsense in politics, and holds politicians to a high standard.

It shouldn't surprise you that Rachel is a left-leaning pundit, but I appreciate that she holds all accountable on her show. She is respectful to all politicians, right and left. She has this great segment called "It's Pat" where she discusses a topic with Pat Buchanan who is undoubtedly on the opposite end of the political spectrum than she is. Rachel is wicked smart and has the chops that bring us back every night to her show.

I'm with you, Sara. I've loved Rachel since I first started listening to her radio show on Air America back during the 2004 election. It's wonderful to see her finally start to hit the big time. She has a great wit and an extremely astute eye for what is really going on in the often topsy-turvy world of Politics. She's fantastic.
