Response to Jakes Progress (Reply #28)

35. Hee here hee!

I guess it must be nice to be confident that you know at least much as any old "news personality." I wouldn't know how that feels myself, because I'm well aware that I don't know anywhere near as much as Rachel Maddow (or any of a number of other such folks, but especially Rachel). Why would I? Keeping up with politics is my hobby. I don't expect to be as well-informed about any subject as someone who keeps up with that particular subject for a freaking living.

I must take exception with the accusation of "fawning," though. According to the Cambridge English Dicionary,
Merriam-Webster, to fawn over someone means "to praise someone too much and give them a lot of attention that is not sincere." https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/fawn-over-on-sb

There is nothing insincere about my admiration for Rachel. She's simply brilliant, and I LOVE brainy people. I've been a fan since I first saw her on TV in the mid aughts, and I've been hooked on her show since it went on the air in 2008. She knows tons more about politics than I ever will, and I greatly appreciate and enjoy her clear explanations of complicated subjects. If anyone thinks there's something wrong with that, they are welcome to keep it to themselve, because I. Don't. Care.
