Rachel Maddow’s high school graduation speech

The woman constantly amazes me. She has done some of the best work I've ever seen on TV, and of course she's a stone commie, being from Castro Valley (not to be confused. though I do it all the time, with Castroville which is famous for artichokes and once had Marilyn Monroe as Artichoke Queen). No artichoke, this gal. No Marilyn Monroe either, though every bit as beautiful in her own way and we're the better for it.

The Political Carnival

This was at Castro Valley High School, in California, back in 1990. Rachel Maddow, complete with Birkenstocks, makes a speech as a teen that rivals any adult speech I’ve heard.

Amazing then, amazing now:

Thanks also to jfortuo.
