Here you will find a series of curmudgeonly commentaries that I've posted from atop my rickety old soapbox for the past few years. And yes, there are indeed political rantings, so place your seats in the upright position and fasten your seat belts .... it may be a bumpy ride.


I Hate To Admit Being Wrong

I really hate being wrong about something, but fair-is-fair and I must admit that I was mistake. In an earlier post something was written that indicated that the MSNBC commentator/anchor, shown above, was nothing but a highly paid shill for the democatic party. However, I've since discovered that she is actually a holding-feet-to-the-fire critic of the henchmen of Donald Trump's inner circle, along with being someone who holds a decidedly liberal bias. Without any doubt, Rachel Maddow delivers the 'news' in a style and tone unlike any other MSM commentator.

The more I watch her show on cable news, the more I have come to appreciate her unique method of reporting. She has proven to be a well-informed news anchor, part of which is perhaps due to her academic doctorate in politics from the University of Oxford in England as a Rhodes Scholar. Her show made Maddow the first openly lesbian host of a prime-time news program in the United States.

All this despite the over-hyped and vastly under-delivered so called "truth bomb" that Ms. Maddow breathlessly proclaimed about Donald Trump's tax returns for 2005 being a political disaster for the new president. That one set her back a bit from her lofty perch as a major news reporter on television.

So for the moment I take back my original critical review and suggest instead that the readers of this blog give the Rachel Maddow Show a look-see and make up your own minds.
