the video starts off talking about Michigan, my home. She's right about the farking Republicans here. My State Senator, Tonya Schuitmaker votes for bills that allow bullying as long as you do it for religious reasons, then claimed that she didn't know that was in the bill (to my face) is a member of the Koch backed ALEC, and refused to sign a YWCA Women of Achievement award for contributions to the community because the person getting the award worked with the LGBT community. She's a real piece of work, but it's OK because she's a CHRISTIAN!!! Jesus must love her, but there are a lot of people who thinks she's a pig.

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: KiwDaWabbit: Pants full of macaroni!!: "Rachel Maddow is a MAN" remarks in 3.... 2.....

She's only a "man" according to men who are threatened by the fact that she is much more intelligent than they are.

Is this the same debate as the one over Ann Coulter?


Ann Coulter is a hideous anorexic coont with giant f*cking man hands.

phamwaa: StrikitRich: The Rachel Maddow Show is probably getting more views from this link than she gets on her own on MSNBC.

It's FARK's built-in dDOS engine. Works every time. Although it may be challenged to bring down MSNBC.

/Though that would be better with Jonathan Alter as the guest.

You've probably been fortunate enough to avoid this problem, but complex or multi-part ideas half-truths, equivocations, smears and distortions take a while to express.

A bit defensive this morning? It seems this angry person can ramble on and on incessantly but if someone points that out...
Why is it she is always angry?
I find it curious that she has been employed for as long as she has. Slow lumbering anger is tiresome to watch and does little for the viewers unless their own senses have been so dulled they find the diatribe to be profound.
Anyway, good luck.

Maddow is called a man because she's a lesbian with short hair.Millions of women have the same short hairstyle and yet aren't called men. Coulter is called a man because she's got a prominent adam's apple,women don't have those.

kinda like how farkers refer to Ann Coulter?

Good try, but no. All kidding aside: neither really look like men; Maddow wins contest on "brains / mental brawn" and "debating skillz / elocution" and "social presentability". (She's better looking, too.)


I don't like either of them, but Coulter, at least, is very occasionally funny. That being said, I'd like to see a debate between Maddow and Coulter. Never happen, though.

Ummmm.... no. Both sexes have it. It tends to be larger in men. Link Women tend to have smaller adam's apples. You've heard of the Bell Curve, right? Coulter is a case where there is distribution overlap.

I thought it was funny that someone took the time to point out that Coulter's adam's apples is on the tail end of the bell curve.

2013-01-26 10:54:49 AM

JacksonBryan: I think she was trying to claim that Michigan will soon replace Florida as the "farked up" Politics capital of the US.  Didn't watch the whole video but roughly 5 minutes of it.


Gov. Rick Snyder is doing everything he can to make that happen. He was hours away from signing a bill allowing weapons into schools when Sandy Hook happened. He got shamed into vetoing that bill, but you can bet he'll sign it in six months when another version shows up on his desk.

Note the lack of attacks on the points she makes... ever. It's always the same tired, unoriginal cracks about her sexuality and/or appearance.

Now compare to the Palin thread on the Politics tab. Yes, there are comments about her appearance. The vast majority of comments are about her idiotic actions.

She does say it. She just says it over and over like a real-life Mojo Jojo. Some segments end up through the center of the earth and wind up in China.

Last night's segment was remarkably informative. She built up her topic in layers, one after another. My old English Comp teacher would have been pleased.

After seeing jokes made on fark turn up on her show later that night word for word on a couple occasions, I'm pretty convinced that she does visit at least every now and then. This just confirms it.

Also, I had no idea you could click on a tag and sort.


Or, her show's interns look here along with some hundred and eleventy other sites each day.

Possible, but the way things are worked in and the way arguments are built have occasionally echoed a point somebody made on fark that really makes me think it's somebody high up, and I don't think the staff on that show is that large (they occasionally do videos behind the scenes online, like once when a cocktail moment got bumped off the show, so they made the drink and passed it around the office instead). Not to mention something like this, which wouldn't have been approved to go on air unless she actually knew enough about the site to be confident in putting it on TV.

Fark is an influential site. It's provided silly and filler stuff to major news organization from pretty early in its history, and as the site has grown to include more serious topics, I don't think it would be a surprise to see more media savvy serious people pull stuff from the site, and if there's anybody on TV who could qualify as a netizen, it's Rachel Maddow.

Just another example of how Rachel Maddow can teach all of us something


I've been farking since 2002 and I didn't know that either.
On another note, I've rarely ever heard anyone have anything reasonable to say against RM that rang true. When I say reasonable I mean not misogynist, homophobic, ad-hominem, or downright false.
