My lover of Rachel continues

FranIAm mentioned this article about Rachel Maddow and as anyone who has read this blog for a while knows, I have a crush on Maddow. So I had to go and read the article, it was a great article about her rise from Stanford to Air America to finally MSNBC. She talks about how intense her life is, the fact that she sometimes doesn't eat till 2 AM after she is done for the day and that is from a street vendor, she talks about her girlfriend and the importance of their relationship in her life and finally she talks about her role as an outsider as a lesbian and as a female in a male dominated profession. I know I am biased in this matter, but it was a really interesting and well written article. Give me even more reason to crush on her.

I thought of you when I was writing my post!

Thanks for the linkage. We call all love our Rachel from afar.

And raised Catholic too- oy gevalt, who would have guessed!!!

I love how she refers to her relationship and its centrality to her life.

I told my mother on Election Night that I would leave MathMan for Rachel. So now I'm just waiting....
