Leave Maddow alone!

Check out this story:

MSNBC loves the chatter of liberal pundit Rachel Maddow, but not her look. Maddow, who's getting her own show, is being subjected to a net work makeover. A source says an entire "glam squad" has been hired for the openly gay Maddow, and she has been asked not to wear her Drew Carey-esque glasses again. There's even talk of "putting her in a skirt." We're sure that'll do the trick. A rep for the channel didn't return e-mails.

Please -- don't put Maddow in a skirt. That'd be ridiculous. And she's OK-looking enough as it is, not to mention she's smart as a whip (even though she is a lefty). As Kevin Williamson notes in the link, if Maddow gets the same make-up squad as Chris Matthews had (or, if I may add, that did Bob Costas' lame dye job for the Olympics), then just leave Rachel be!!

Don't know what's going on tonight, but I'm cracking up at Matthews' hair! Must be windy in St. Paul. That shit is all over the place!

Would you wear a skirt for a couple of million dollars?

It's MSNBC's money.. She signed a contract....

The rest is hype...

Nice deflection, Kavips.

I agree with you, Hube. It goes to show how out of touch those MSNBC execs are. Rachel Maddow and David Gregory are the only two of their gang for whom I have great respect.

Let me add, I would like to see David Gregory take over the late Tim Russert's Meet the Press.

Who is stealing the name Digby from Digby?
I agree, leave Maddow alone.

Perry - YUCK -
I want Gregory to fall off the face of the earth or at least off of the MSNBC roster.
