This kind of has nothing to do with my girl-crush on Rachel Maddow, except it does because now it’s too hard not to have a crush on her smarts.
It’s no secret that I’m a liberal Democrat. I watch and read the news with as open a mind as I can manage. Though I may say that politics are ridiculous, there’s nothing better than following all the flip-flopping, pandering, gaffes, and mind-bending statements made during an election year. Because politics are ridiculous.
Our president is not perfect; no president is. I support President Obama, and with my support comes criticism as I believe it should.
This new healthcare reform law that the President presented to Congress that would require all companies to cover contraception with no copay for women is one I support. Women have the right and responsibility to take care of our bodies with what medical science has provided. Whether we use the contraception to prevent pregnancy, or like in my case to prevent acne, using contraception is a choice made by 98% of American women.
Rachel Maddow can explain the details much better than my politically amateur brain can manage:
So now you’ll see why Rachel Maddow is a wizardly representation of me.
There are times when I watch her show and cringe at how she makes her point, but even the Sweet, Sweet Baby Jeebus and Mama Oprah aren’t always perfect.
You, Ms. Maddow, are my Patronus.
I’ve also reserved a chimichanga as my Patronus, so if you see an apparition of Rachel Maddow eating a deep fried burrito, you’ll know it’s my energy protecting myself from evil.
