Sexy Rachel Maddow Photo Gets Republicans Hot and Bothered


rachel maddow yearbook pictureRachel Maddow is one gorgeous woman, and not just in her yearbook picture (right). Though for some reason, that photo, which has been making the rounds on the Internet, is getting right wingers all seriously hot and bothered.

Maybe it's the pearls.

Tucker Carlson's Daily Caller saw it and wondered if Media Matters would get "madder than usual if I say that she was very lovely." Daily Caller, by the way, is the same blog that has made a habit of calling Maddow a man.

And when Rush Radio 99.5 had Senator David Vitter on as a guest the other day, the guys had nothing better to talk about than Rachel Maddow's yearbook photo. Vitter is the Republican Senator from Louisiana with a diaper fetish whose phone number appeared on the "D.C. Madam's" phone list. The same Republican senator who kept Brent Furer, an aide who pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a knife-wielding altercation with an ex-girlfriend, on the payroll. Furer handled women's issues for the senator. Of course he did.

During the interview, the radio jockeys suggested that Vitter post some old photos of himself on the Internet. One brought up Maddow's high school yearbook photo and joked that she looked "like a woman" in the picture.

Vitter laughed and said: "Must have been a long time ago."

The senator has since apologized to Maddow in a letter:

Dear Rachel,

Regarding my remark during a radio conversation today, I apologize.

The hosts made their comment and I obviously chimed in. While we do not usually agree on the issues, I do not think you deserved that comment.



So why are these guys so intent on calling Maddow a man, anyhow?

Because she ditched the long blonde hair and pearls in favor of cropped hair and no makeup.

On second thought, it must be because she's a lesbian.

Is she really a lesbian?  I didn't know that.  I thought that someone would definitely say that about her because she is rather manly on her show.  However, I don't enjoy watching her because I feel that she's just copied Keith Olberman.  I prefer watching him when I'm in the mood for political aggravations.

That is the most shallow story I have every read.  If that is what readers want to see, no wonder USA is in the shape it is in.  No wonder Obama got his herd to swallow the Koolaid so easily.  Most of them are still hooked, and doing the Obama dance.  Don't have a clue that America is caught in the Obama whirlpool of destruction of freedom and rights, as well as the tanking of the economy.  Obama says," Since I don't have amy clue of what to do, I think I will tackle the health care system and fix it."  Well, you  ignorant marxist, it wasn't broken.  So,Suzanne, keep the trivial bubble-gum coming for the weak minded can read the pictures.

Yeah, she's gay Pishyah.  And quite proud of it.

Pete, everything about your comment reeks of rudeness and callousness.  I'm assuming you dislike the article because you  dislike Rachel.

Koolaid?  Seriously.  If you don't know the history of that phrase, learn it and learn why you shouldn't use it.  If you DO know the history and continue to use it, yikes!


ANYWAY... I'm surprised her hair was so BLOND!  I actually prefer her shorter, brown hair now though.  I think it's more flattering for her face shape.

Interesting Pete, that you think reporting on this is shallow... but you say nothing about the fact these guys spend their time talking offensively about the looks of a fellow political commentator on-air. That's really what's shallow here.

Pete's real agenda here was to call Obama a Marxist and insinuate what appears that Obama is a Communist. What I really think he wanted to parrot is what Beck is spewing that Obama is bringing Socialism to America, which has already been here for many years. Pete if he is a good Capitalist will of course turn down his medicare and social security, I don't think I have read anywhere where any of the ultra right is doing that. And Pete, there is a really a difference between Socialism and Communism and you need to learn that before your next anti-Obama campaign.

In fairness, the picture was taken when it was a woman, before the botched operation.

Highways, education, military spending....all of these are socialist, right? Lets become a truly non-socialist country like Somalia. They are doing really well without government.
