who art on MSNBC.
Hallowed be thy prime time slot.
Thy network renew, and new episodes air,
on my TV as it is on set.
Give us this day our daily news;
and forgive us our ogling,
as we forgive those dirty republican whore-mongerers who trash you on the internet.
Lead us into the 24 hour news cycle,
but deliver us from boredom.
For thine is the short hair,
the best seller,
and the lesbian demographic forever.
Amen.”—the lesbian’s prayer (via thetwentiethofaugust)
“One of the manifestations of depression for me is that I lose my will. And I thereby lose my ability to focus. I don’t think I’ll ever have the day-to-day consistency in my performance that something like This American Life has. If I’m not depressed and I’m on and I can focus and I can think through something hard and without interruption and without existential emptiness that comes from depression, that gives me – not mania. But I exalt. I exalt in not being depressed.”—Rolling Stone, Rachel Maddow’s Quiet War
"And so here she is, at the end of April, pouring drinks across a massive wooden bar, watching everyone get drunker and drunker, thinking to herself as a guest commits the mixological sacrilege of ordering a vodka martini."
