I <3 Rachel Maddow

If you've been watching a lot of MSNBC lately, you're acquainted with Rachel Maddow -- she's been playing talking head on the news network frequently during the run-up to the primaries, and also has a show on Air America Radio (you can stream and/or download the show).

I love that Rachel is so damn smart, and that she's unabashed in all she does. I love the fact that when she debates an issue, she gives us all a little credit and doesn't condescend or play dumb. And I love the fact that she might end up being Tucker Carlson's replacement on MSNBC! If this comes to pass, I can throw away my remote, because I'll never have to change the channel again. :-D

That would be fantastic if she replaces Tucker. Rachel is on XM Air America from 6-8pm so I catch part of her show every day and it's outstanding radio. I would still have to change the channel during Morning Joe however. Scarborough has tried to mask his true identity somewhat since the tide started turning after Katrina but he's still the same ugly underneath. I vote for Stephanie Miller for the morning show.

I don't usually have the TV on early enough for Scarborough, but I probably wouldn't change the channel -- maybe that's only because I don't know the guy well enough? So far, Tucker is the only one who really grates on me enough to stop watching...
