TV might be about to get better

From Think Progress:

Rachel Maddow gets MSNBC tryout.

Progressive talk radio host Rachel Maddowtaped a pilot” recently for MSNBC, in which she teamed up with MSNBC prime time VP Bill Wolff. Maddow currently makes “irregular appearances on MSNBC.” According to TVNewser, there is “no word on if the pilot is being considered ready for take-off.”

From her Air America bio:

Rachel has a doctorate in political science (she was a Rhodes Scholar) and a background in HIV/AIDS activism, prison reform, and other lefty rabblerousing.

She shakes a mean cocktail, drives a bright red pickup, hates Coldplay, loves arguing with conservatives, spends a lot of money on AMTRAK tickets, and dresses like a first-grader.

Let's hear it for lefty rabblerousing!

I didn't know she has a doctorate, but it doesn't surprise me. This gal is smart as a whip and extremely coherent and understandable when she speaks. I'm a huge fan.

MSNBC ain't stupid. They struck ratings gold with Keith Olbermann, and they moved Scarborough to the early morning hours where he can only do a minimum of damage, and replaced him with Dan Abrams who isn't doing too badly. Dr. Ms. Maddow will add another truth-teller to their lineup. I hope it works out.

Let's hope they can that Repug twit Carlson to make room for her.

Now the big question remains: What make of pickup does she drive? Enquiring minds want to know...
