    Good God. This was such a brilliant speech. It’s so good to know that sanity and intelligence are not completely gone in this country. More power to her. It’s just sad that so many people are listening to the voices of ignorance, greed and dirty politics.

    Rachel Maddow is awesome! Wise words and wise advice. Rachel, be careful. Somewhere along the way, you are going to be asked to run for office, probably the U.S. Senate. Although you would make a great Senator, our nation needs your intelligence on a nightly basis, explaining the “spin” and unraveling the lies and deceptions that pollute our body politic and our social contract with one another.

    Even if the Asian student in one row was obviously not impressed by Rachel, my Rachel love quota has been surpassed for the day.

    I love her topic and approach — that some hardworking, dedicated people dedicate their lives to EVIL and worsening the living circumstances of other people. This is such a refreshing rejoinder to all the creeps who blindly suggest that hard work is the answer to all life’s ills — as if this is a solution for anything???

    Bravo to Rachel and to being a step ahead and truly moral.

    I LOVE Rachel. Brilliant speech, brilliant subject, and wise words I truly hope those students carry with them.

    Rachel has always impressed me, from her start on Air America to the election a year ago, and now on her own television show that is as my podcast addiction every day on my commute (recommended, if you don’t yet subscribe).

    She is not only an intelligent, wise, and balanced woman, but she is a great American. She loves this country so much, valuing truth and equal treatment for all.

    I hope her star continues to rise and grow brighter. We need her voice.

    Thank god for Rachel Maddow — so smart, such great values. And she’s a hometown hero there in Northampton.
