What makes her so popular you ask? Well, Maddow is exceptionally different from many cable news figures. Most of these anchors and hosts keep their sexual identity under wraps, whereas Maddow’s is an essential part of her political self.

"I think of myself as a commentator and a pundit, an analyst but not a reporter and not a journalist. You know, I think doing research isn’t enough (as she laughs) to be considered a journalist."
Her expertise impressed the networks, especially MSNBC. After some talk about Maddow getting her own show, it finally happened. She recently took over the 9 PM hour on MSNBC with her new TV show called; yes you guessed it, The Rachel Maddow Show. Taking over for Dan Abram, Maddow’s show officially began September 8th of this year. I cannot wait until 9 Pm tonight, so I can watch this hot liberal lesbian throw some curveballs at these old white men who barely know how to swing the bat.
Watch below as Maddow comments on McCain being economically challenged.
Yeah, it cracked me up too.
