Remember that great quote from the other day about Maddow’s lesbian glamour? Yeah, in context, way less great. Basically, Merkin seems to miss that Maddow sees herself exactly as Merkin argues she is not:
“I’m not a TV anchor babe. I’m a big lesbian who looks like a man.” Maddow
"Merkin, who obviously hasn’t read any interviews with Maddow, claims Rachel is no “barefaced, unstylish dyke” — you know, like the rest of us. She also says Maddow wears makeup onscreen to please her male viewers. (Last time I checked, even the male newscasters have to wear makeup, it being television and all.)" - AE

MJ:And you'd read Queen and Country sipping a...?
RM:That's a very good question. There's a great drink called a purgatory, and Queen and Country is all about emotional and bureaucratic purgatory. It's 100-proof rye, Benedictine, and Chartreuse. It's a kick in the teeth. It's perfectly balanced and wonderful, and it's super-alcoholic. I like big drinks that aren't afraid of the alcohol in them. Not big in size, but in flavor, and the way I can allow myself to enjoy them is by making them in very small quantities. I make tiny glasses of very big drinks.
