Maddow Magic

Rachel Maddow vs. Pat Buchanan
This is a segment from Rachel Maddow's show during which she corrects some things that were stated by Buchanan. The conversation stemmed from a debate they had over the confirmation hearings of Sonia Sotomayor, the Supreme Court nominee who would become the nation's first latino judge on that bench. I love the way she handled this. She used research, facts, and tact while still issuing a mighty blow of sarcasm.
My favorite part: Maddow shooting down Buchanan's claim that "this has been a country built basically by white folks."
I love her.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This made me want to become a journalist for reals. I'd LOVE to have the seat to correct erroneous information that marginalizes racial factions and attempts to deteriorate the contributions that makes our melting pot so tasty. So, who cooked the stew?
