Rachel Maddow Is Me

See the following exchange between Maddow and a GOP talking head Alex Castellanos:

The tussle took a more personal turn when Castellanos told Maddow, “I love how passionate you are. I wish you are as right about what you’re saying as you are passionate about it. I really do.”

“That’s really condescending,” Maddow replied. “I mean this is a stylistic issue. My passion on this issue is actually me making a factual argument.”

I get these comments all the time! Whenever one is not apologizing for one’s every idea like a timid little mouse and is not burying one’s opinion under a mountain of qualifiers and apologies, one starts to get these “passion comments.”

Well, at least I’m in brilliant company.
