  4. It’s like trading shiny marbles at the playground - “You can have, ‘Gah,’ I can have ‘Interestingish.’” And then there’s the thing about the color of genitals. Ana Marie’s back!

  5. It&#8217;s meta-meta! Meta: Rachel Maddow on the train, on the phone, on the air live with NBC News&#8217; Andrea Mitchell. See the video here. (This, from the Rachel Maddow Show photo stream on Flickr, which has been pretty active lately).

  7. An oldie!! Re: Ann Coulter - “She’s actually an ex-girlfriend of mine.”

  8. “Lesbianism has finally come into a glamour of its own, an appeal that goes beyond butch and femme archetypes into a more universal seduction. Her name is Rachel Maddow.”

  9. I think you can officially say you’ve made it, when you’re the answer to a Jeopardy! question (ETA: or, the question to a Jeopardy! answer, actually)

  10. “Concession to vanity: I’ve had to get contact lenses. I only put them in while I’m on TV. They are a miracle device that allows me to be on TV without glasses, which everyone tells me I can’t wear on TV.”

    (He mentions my Uncle Benny!)

    Rachel on the Colbert Report, 11/6/08

  12. From the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, January 7, 2009. So many good quotes in this one it’s hard to know where to start!

    "Someone being a total geek about their subject matter is a good thing!”

  13. Rachel Maddow, “our very own Gay Bomb”

  14. Michael Steele (RNC chair) says: “We want to convey that the modern-day GOP looks like the conservative party that stands on principles. But we want to apply them to urban-suburban hip-hop settings…. [The makeover] will be avant garde*, technically… it will come to [the] table with things that will surprise everyone—off the hook.”

    *Ok, what? How is this “avant-garde”, exactly?**

    Rachel citing her guest (Melissa Harris-Lacewell, Princeton professor) on her last appearance on the show: “The Republicans electing him chairman of the party showed, quote, ‘They’re thinking Barack Obama is Superman, so what they needed to do was get Kryptonite. Kryptonite comes from Superman’s own planet, so they went to Planet Black Guy.’”

    When asked if she still believed that, Harris-Lacewell replied, “Not only do I think they went to Planet Black Guy, I think they went to like, Planet Old Black Guy.”

    **Ok, he might have just made it “technically” avant-garde. He said after: “We need to uptick our image with everyone, including one-armed midgets.”
