Maddow For President

How awesome is Rachel Maddow?!
Unlike Olbermann, Maddow plans to interview some conservative guests. But she is determined to avoid the left-right pairings that sustain much of cable news.

"It creates fake balance," she says. "I'm sorry -- we're going to have a debate about whether or not the Earth is flat? It doesn't make sense to have a debate about whether offshore drilling is going to bring down gas prices. You know what? It's not. The fact that it's false ought to be reported, or you're advancing a lie."
Can't wait for her show.

The lack of challenging guests is Keith's biggest weakness in his eyes. He brings people on so he can have someone to make his point towards. He puts it in the form of a question, but it's still Keith making his point, like "Is it true that Bush is just being a ninny, where he could in fact be a President?" Guest: "Yes, Keith."
