Rachel Maddow, Stop Saying "Man" This Very Instant!
Good fuck, we get it, you're a dyke, but saying "man" at the end of a sentence is as annoying as straight dudes say "bro (or bra)."
"That's for saying that, man."
"Have a great night, man."
"Glad to have you back, man."
- Rachel Maddow on TRMS

Rachel, I love you, but knock off the "Thanks, man" when Ed Schultz passed the MSNBC reins to you at 9 pm. It sounds awful.

R21, my feelings exactly.
I guess she would be a current version of "handsome woman." Does she even acknowledge her female genderism? Or is she one of those men trapped in a female body?
I'm ok with the lesbians but I prefer they be more closely associated with lipstick instead of a softball glove.

R24 "Lipstick" lesbian... About as rare a creature as the unicorn and the bisexual male... Rachel reminds me of that obnoxious geeky intellectual girl in high school who had to always correct the teacher on the most trivial minutiae - and then gloat as if she'd really proven something... You know the the type. Of course, the woman probably makes more in one year than I'll make in ten, so what the fuck does my opinion matter? :-)

I like Rachel a lot but agree that her calling people "man" is annoying. At least she doesn't call people by their last name like Bill O'Reilly.
Jon Stewart also does the underlining-of-the-notes thing and we know Rachel is a fan of his so maybe she's copying him or paying tribute?

I love everything about Rachel except the always-awkward exchange at 9PM when Ed hands her the reigns. Ed always looks out of place and stumbling to match Rachel's wittiness, and of course Rachel doesn't help herself with the whole "thanks, man" shtick.

Somewhat in agreement, R21. I only watch her in small doses, but generally find she is better when her role is as a guest rather than as a host: more focused, fewer annoying quirks, more considered, less preachy.
There's always a choir who likes being preached to, but I'm not a good audience for that approach -- which is why I don't watch her more often.
|by Anonymous||reply 44||12/28/2012|
Some one at MSNBC reads DL. She hasn't called him "man" for a while now. Instead, she makes awkward small talk before simply saying "thanks" and launches into her first topic of discussion. I am a bit disappointed in her, actually.

She's just using it as a variant of "buddy" or "pal".

I think she's great but it just annoys me how her writers write her pieces in a way that seems as though it should be read (like an article in a newspaper) instead of communicated orally. So it's like she tries to read these long sentences with multiple clauses but then tries to pull it off in a fun, conversational manner. It just sounds awkward to me. They need to give her shorter sentences to read. Sorry, I'm not very articulate this evening.
|by Anonymous||reply 47||01/12/2013|
r44 if you don't like Rachel's show, just say it. Enough with the "she's preaching to the choir and I'm an "independent" minded person, blah, blah blah."
Many of us watch her not because she preaches to the choir. In fact, she doesn't preach. She gives a story context. She goes beneath the shallow coverage of mainstream "news." A lot of things she talks about isn't really discussed in media. It was she who highlighted the voter suppression in OH. After she provided coverage, people started talking about and doing something about it. The OH Sec of State had to back off his decision because of the increased media scrutiny.
She does a lot of regional news that is important nationally. She coined the term "Governor Ultrasound" for the VA Governor and she also talked about Ken Cuccinelli.
I can almost bet that people watch Rachel's show know more about the issues than those in the lamestream media. In fact, survey shows this to be true.

I still say "man" once in a while. I'm a child of the 60's. It doesn't bother me when Rachel does it.
Rachel Maddow has done what my family swore could not be done. My sister-in-law's parents are in their 80's. For decades they were big-time fundraisers and activists for the Republican Party. They are constant Fox News watchers and commie pinko lib haters of the first order. They LOVE HER.
My sister-in-law says they watch Rachel's show every day. They don't watch to yell at the tv and give her shit - they genuinely like her and her show.
The times, they are a-changing.

I don't always agree 100% with her, but I think she is the best of any anchor in trying to logically build a rhetorical argument.
And I don't agree that she panders and/or preaches to the choir. A progressive audience might be more open to her message, but when I compare it to Faux News, which isn't even remotely subtle about playing on people's preconceptions, I appreciate the footwork that she and her staff do in preparation.

I like Rachel but I hate the way she often takes something that could be said in 2 minutes and stretches it out to 10 or 15 minutes by emphasizing points over and over again and running them into the ground. She'll show a video of a Republican saying something stupid and then tell us exactly what we just saw and heard in the video. ("Can you believe he really said ____? I know it's surprising, but there it is on video. There he is saying ___. Yes, he really said that.") Some stories speak for themselves and don't need a long recap or lecture afterwards. I often wonder if the repetitiveness is just her style or if the writers are trying to stretch things out to make the show fill the full hour.

The dyke-hating faggots are those skinny ugly nelly ones (you know THOSE ones with the tight faggot clothes and high pitched voice no one can stand in your office?) who are terrified of lesbians in real life.
I don't mind nelly faggots like r36 hating hidden behind his little screen, that's all he can do! He's one of those prissing POS looking at the ground IRL too scared to talk when more than two people are present. Powerless bottom of the social ladder diseased jizzball.

Way to combat lesbian-bashing with a good old fashion gay slur r62. That always works.
Has it ever occurred to you that r36 is a Log Cabin Republican or GOProud? They hate Rachel not so much because she's gay but that she's a liberal. These are Fox Viewers we're talking about.

Are you a scared faggot too, r63? Because let me get this straitght: just because I'm a dyke doesn't mean I like you. Quite the contrary actually, since the one thing the gay scene has taught me is how much of traitors the faggots are. Fuck you in your nelly, diseased ass.

r64 Do you often lash out at people you don't know? Perhaps you ought to troll-dar me and you will see that I am a loyal Maddow viewer. I dislike when people combat homophobia with homophobia. You're just as vile as r36 because (1) you assume it's man and (2) that person is even gay. Based on those assumptions, you just threw a homophobic slur against gay men.
r36 is a douchebag, but s/he's probably a GOProud douchebag.

love Rachel. The only tv news where I often learn something. I like how she will take the time to put a story in historical context. And the thanks man stuff and other quirks are generally an endearing break from other robot anchors. Sometimes she goes a little over the top when trying to make it clear she is being satirical, but other times this works well.
I think she can get away with a lot of her offbeat stuff because she's honestly a politics geek and it's not a put on that she cares about everything politics.

I love Rachel, I think she's brilliant. That being said, I prefer having femme lesbians for friends. Almost all of my lesbian friends are in femme/femme relationships. In all the years I've been gay, I've never figured out the lesbians who seem to go for the butch/femme thing. Seems totally counterproductive to me, and something you definitely don't see the majority of gay men doing. But whatever floats your boat, I guess.
