Before I was in media and before I was doing this kind of media, I was a student of political science. I did a doctorate in political science and I studied social movements and how activists bring about change. The one thing that I learned and saw in action, and was never able to prove academically but I believe it with all my heart, is the thing that makes you most likely to win is winning. And that when you are unexpectedly able to achieve something, you not only attract attention, you attract hope—and hope is momentum.

Reminder to all:

That, while in college, Rachel Maddow crashed a “Conservative Coming Out Day” event, swiped the sign, and changed it to “Sexually Frustrated Conservative Mud-Wrestling Day”.

* My crush on Rachel Maddow; it’s deep and it’s real.
