In the sea of pill-poppin', faggot-spewin', spin-belching conservoschmucks, Dr. Rachel Maddow rises to the crest, bobbing like a life-preserving buoy. Boy, oh boi. Good-lookin' out dyke Maddow has become a hit, a commentator's darling, if you will, on the TV talking-head-talk-show circuit. Her regular stints on Countdown With Keith Olbermann and guest slots with Tucker Carlson have set her course: Hers is a star to watch. Her staple radio program, however, The Rachel Maddow Show is broadcast from New York on the good ship Air America and now can be heard on our very own KOKE-AM, 5-7pm every weekday afternoon. Maddow's genius (aside from that Rhodes Scholar thing) is her sense of humor, her sense of right and wrong (not just right and left), and her sense of decency (while she can muster a good drubbing, it's not her style to keelhaul the blaggards, you know?). Forecasts call for choppy waters, captain. At least we've got the good doc to keep us afloat.
