WOW: Rachel Maddow
Why Now?: She’s just now returning to her show after a week hiatus because she had swine flu! Give this lady some lovin’!
Why Should You Care?:
Rachel Maddow is awesome. I don’t know if or even how that statement can be extrapolated because it’s just…true. She’s really only burst onto the visible media scene in the past few years and quickly rose to popularity enough to get her own show on MSNBC in August of 2008. As an out-and-proud lesbian who freely speaks of her relationship with her girlfriend (unlike other media-maven lesbians coughRosiepretheViewcough) she’s not only an amazing role model for the gay community, but she’s an awesome woman who consistently holds her own during political debates, regularly serving a plate of whoop-ass to ignorant politicos. She’s stunningly intelligent, seemingly level-headed, and totally swoon-worthy. In the crazy world of the 24-hour media clusterfuck, Rachel is one of the most consistent level-headed debaters out there, and I look forward to her trail-blazing political media for women.
