Rachel for Congress??

Rachel Maddow is becoming increasingly shrill and irrelevant. Her cheer-leading for the Israeli holocaust of the Palestinians considered along with her awful interview of Representative Alan Grayson, (D-FL 8th district) was really a horrible attempt to paint him as anti-semitic when he is in fact Jewish, born in NYC, and a distinguished graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School. She apparently thinks the word "holocaust" is the exclusive property of WWII victims and cannot be applied to Palestinians or even the 45,000 Americans who are bureaucratically executed by the health insurance companies and die for lack of insurance.

Even when reminded that Alan Grayson is a distinguished Jewish Harvard alumni she was never able to retract her THREE attempts to have HIM retract his use of the word "holocaust" to describe the net effect of Republican negativity. Unfortunately she is precisely the reason why progressives are going to lose the next two elections. Poor research and pig-headness rather than humility rules her approach, which is often entertaining but never completely without taint of "know it all", without the knowledge to back it up.
