Despite a pretty impressive list of accomplishments, Rachel Maddow is perhaps best known for being the first openly homosexual anchor of a prime time American news program. Oh, and she was also the first openly gay Rhodes scholarship recipient. Forget about her years of work at MSNBC, her radio show, and her doctoral degree.
Nope, she’s just that gay liberal TV lady [Ed. Note: I love Rachel Maddow and I love her show!].
And now, a recently released yearbook photo of Maddow is making the rounds. Um … it looks nothing like the Maddow familiar to the public eye. I had to do a triple take in order to meld together the blonde woman in a picture from the early nineties with the Rachel Maddow that appears on my television screen. However, what really caused me to choke on my taco dip was Thaindian News’ written coverage.
