Maddow in town

Posted By on Mon, Mar 22, 2010 at 10:27 AM

MSNBC anchor and former Air-America radio host Rachel Maddow made an appearance at the Little Rock convention center this morning as part of the Clinton School's speaker series. She talked about her high school experience, her early career in AIDS activisim and her transition into the media. Maddow was, as you might expect from watching her show, thoughtful, sharp and funny. She had the audience in stitches on more than one occasion. To name one, speaking of Sen. Blanche Lincoln, Maddow said, "It's one thing to be a conservative Democrat. It's another thing to act like you don't want to be a Democrat at all."

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
