12. I may tune her out permanently. I gave her a shot because KO seems
to think she's a really bright progressive star, but I haven't seen it. The "talk me down" segment was just way over the top for me.

looking into his passport and his Mama's passport right before the election

20. This is brilliant. Guys, Rachel is PLAYACTING.
She's pretending to be a concern troll.

She's fighting complacency. She knows that her audience is mostly progressive, and she's getting the vote out and getting the volunteers out. Obama said a week or two before that, right up to Election Day, he wants people RUNNING SCARED, and she's taking that to heart.

It's not what we WANT to see, I suppose. But it's a brilliant move.

27. I like to know all facets of a problem.
Not just how Obama can win, but how McCain can win. Then and only then can I really be informed. I think Rachel isn't syrupy enough for some people. But like I said before, if the engineers who designed the Tacoma Narrows bridge had just been a little more skeptical of their own ideas, and a little more thoughtful about what could go wrong, they might have avoided a very costly mistake.

I guess I'm weird. I think she's fantastic. But I come from an engineering family. :)

22. Her makeup is thicker tonight. She looks different.
More eyeshadow, more lipstick.


Whatever.


She's trying to be impartial.

26. She just looked more pissed off?
At the end of her segment she was glaring into the camera. I do agree her makeup is much heavier and "depressed" I just don't get it.

24. I get where you all are coming from
but I dig her and I think she's doing a service to counter complacency, so I am watching!!!

You know she is a huge Obama advocate; she's doing exactly what he would ask her to do if he were like that.

She's working that youth vote...GO Rachel-- kick them out of their dorm rooms and to the polls! :-)

30. Great segment on the poll tax.
About the lines being longer in poorer and minority sections of Fla than in the more affluent neighborhoods.

Good for her!!

and it's reporting like this that makes me put up with her negativity on the polls.

44. Come on, she's not saying Obama WILL lose; she's just talking
about scenarios in which McCain could win. And it's something that must be considered. Obama has; that's why he is warning everyone against complacency.

41. Maddow is doing a look back. Some funny stuff. Mostly bashing Obama, not laying a finger on HC
Edited on Sun Nov-02-08 09:53 PM by TheDonkey
supposedly about all the candidates missteps and twists in 2 years but Clinton was ominously missing from any embarrassing segment. She made sure to include several negative Obama and Biden clips among the other candidates from the rethug and democratic side. Maddow showing her true colors.
