A Woman Breaks Into the Boys Club

Rachel Maddow is awesome. She is not the typical female TV commentator. Firstly, she's not blonde, secondly she's a dyke, and thirdly she's a lefty. She's also so frickin smart (a Rhodes scholar), interesting, and most important of all doesn't sound exactly like every other TV pundit.

She filled in for Keith Olbermann on MSNBC this summer and was great. Now they are recognizing her talent and popularity and she's getting her own show on MSNBC starting on September 8.

It's a whole new world now. Rachel Maddow at 9 and the AC 360 at 10. What a great political season it will be.

Check out Rebecca Traister's profile of Maddow from earlier this summer.
