Darling Rachel jumps the shark in service to Darling Cory: To understand last evening’s awful discussion, you have to know a fact that didn’t get mentioned:
Rachel Maddow and Cory Booker have been friends ever since they went to Stanford together. When Booker appears on her show in better times, Maddow often mentions this fact.
It helps us learn to adore her.
Last night, she didn’t do so. But she staged a truly gruesome cable segment in defense of her horrible, scam-heavy friend.
We’re not sure which was worse: Booker’s disingenuous filibusters, or the fact that Maddow kept letting him stage them. Or was it the ludicrous way Maddow opened the segment, pretending that the GOP has been fooling us about what Booker actually said?
Maddow was totally full of shit, as she so frequently is. But her horrible friend may have been even worse. Truly, these two are a pair.
Go ahead—watch last evening’s performance. (Strongly recommended; just click here.) If you can’t see Maddow's scamminess this time around, trust us—you never will.
The American people saw this one coming: To see Mike Seeger sing Darling Cory, go ahead—just click this.
Why did Booker run his scam: We'll let Kornacki explain.
