Let’s All Look At Pictures of Rachel Maddow


Last night President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner both gave statements about the debt ceiling during prime time and Rachel Maddow Was On Vacation. This is Not Okay. How am I supposed to handle/understand/analyze/cry about political statements if the news isn’t delivered to me from Maddow’s shining face? How can I know how to properly cope with Political Feelings if Rachel doesn’t show me how to make a tangentially related cocktail?

To ease my pain I went on a “pictures and videos of Rachel Maddow” hunt. I found it– at Maddowphiles-Those Who Love Rachel Maddow Tumblr. This is not where you should go if you want to read about lots of political stuff. This is where you should go to see pictures like this:

Go Dragon Go


Or videos like this:

If that’s not quite enough you can also check out fuckyeahrachelmaddow.tumblr.com and fuckyeahmaddow.tumblr.com

Also if anyone is able to find a picture of Rachel Maddow eating cereal or with a kitten please let me know ASAP.

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Maddow-deficiency was hitting critical levels last night. Bumping into her on the street last year and getting her to stop and talk to me by saying, “uh, sorry to interrupt your day, but you’re kinda my hero…” still ranks as the best/most embarrassing moment of my life.

  2. if this – rachel maddow, the open thread, rachel’s article about NOM, lesbians talking about whole foods – is what AS looks like on a day when you guys are worried about having nothing to publish, i want more days where you’re worried about having nothing to publish. except i never want you to be worried. never ever ever.

  3. Rachel Maddow, Katie Couric, Suze Orman, and Oprah Winfrey

    Randahl’s a genious. Put these guys on The View and keep Whoopi. They’d fix the economy and figure out how 2 women can have a baby together in no time.

  4. Rachel Maddow is my spirit animal AND my butch-nerd super-hero. I’d like to hang out with her and make old-fashioned whiskey cocktails, read comic books, and listen to Lucero while she explains the Federal Reserve system to me.

  5. Ugh. I relate on every single level.

    In this time of crisis, it’s good to know there’s a kindred spirit out there. Be strong, comrade! She’ll get back from vacation soon (I HOPE OH GOD).

  6. I am so glad I am not alone… I literally was waiting all day to see if she was on tonight and almost burst in to tears when she wasn’t. Quitting cigarettes wasn’t this hard. When is she coming baaaaaaaaaack?
