TWENTY-FOUR-HOUR PARTY PEOPLE 
MSNBC tries to figure out what liberals really want.

“The Rachel Maddow Show,” which airs every weeknight at nine, is known for even-tempered political discussion, not for screaming headlines. Maddow plays the cheerful docent, often taking viewers on a tour of the conservative movement, where she invariably finds something that inspires her not to anger but to joyful incredulity. Although her analysis is reliably liberal, she likes to surprise viewers with obscure historical anecdotes and nimble shifts in tone; the elections in Iran, apparently, were both “geostrategically important” and “amazeballs.” 
…The decisions that Maddow makes go a long way toward defining what MSNBC is, too. Phil Griffin, the president, calls Maddow “our quarterback,” the person who sets the tone for the network.

In the two years that the democrats had the White House, the House, and the Senate, we got Wall Street reform, student loan reform, credit card reform, healthcare reform obviously, the fair pay act, expanding of the GI bill, they re-authorized the children’s health insurance program, expanded national service programs, fixed the sentencing disparity for crack versus powdered cocaine. We got the 9/11 first responders bill, we got the hate crimes act, they ratified the Start treaty between us and Russia on nuclear weapons, they repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, they did cash for clunkers, they did the stimulus which included the largest middle-class tax cuts ever. That was all done by the Congress that was elected at the same time as President Obama in 2008. They were elected in November 2008, sworn in January 2009 and over the next 2 years they got all of those things done. Then, the republicans did really well in the midterms, and republicans took control of the House for the first time in years and, John Boehner became Speaker. And since then, there has not been a single significant piece of legislation enacted into law.

North Carolina Republicans passed a law allowing you to hunt with a silencer on your gun. Because venison tastes better when the deer is not surprised.
