Watch: Rachel Maddow Gets Some Gay Info from Pompous AK Teabagger Senate Candidate Joe Miller


In one of the sharpest "on the run" interviews I've ever seen, Rachel Maddow chases down Alaska teabagger GOP Senate candidate Joe Miller and asks him about his adviser Terry Moffitt, who runs the website "Hope for Homosexuals", and also asks him whether he believes being gay is a choice (he gives the bizarre answer that "it's a state issue"), and whether he would vote for a federal marriage amendment (he would).

Nice job, Rachel!

  1. "I did my best" She did, and it was pretty damn good given the situation. Rachel Maddow rocks. Of course the farcical nature of the interview goes to show how scared of her the candidates must be.

  2. He doesn't give a damn. Neither does Alaska. he is far ahead in the polls. Whatl is wrong with these people ? He is not even hiding the fact that he is lying, a hypocrit and a bigot. Small government my ass.....Small except for when it comes to women's reproductive rights, gay marriage, immigration, and...well not small at all in fact. Bloody massively intrusive government actually. Why the hell do they even pretend that's what they stand for ??? Urgh. I hope Rachel had a Silkwood shower after getting near to that slimeball.

  3. So being gay is a state's issue? Whatever the hell that means. So marriage is a state's issue... except when I want the government to pass a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Then it's not really a state's issue anymore, because there are tax issues involved in marriage (and as we all know, gay citizens don't pay any taxes).

    What a fucking imbecile. Someone should just make a big rubber stamp that says HOMOPHOBE and apply it to his forehead.

  4. spectacular job on Maddow's part. now THAT'S how you do an interview on the fly under awful conditions. i GUARANTEE Joe Miller got in his car and said: "that was the longest fucking walk -- don't ever put me in that position again."

    Good for Maddow!

  5. One thought kept going though my head the whole time that I watched this: "Douchbag". Rachel always brings home the bacon.

  7. Miller has now admitted he lied in an investigation, so what else did he lie about and can he be trusted at all? Anyone who refuses to answer questions about his background, has no business being in politics. Background transparency talks to ethics, integrity and honesty, and if he feels that he cannot hold up under that scrutiny, he REALLY has no place being in public office. Why has the supposed 'liberal bias' press (to quote the fools on Fox) not hung this moron out to dry? Where is their in-depth journalism to expose his truth, and also, WHY do so many people support this man? It makes the mind boggle!

    Thanks Rachel for trying to get SOME information on this sinister candidate! Wish others would bring out the truth too!

  8. "Otherwise we'll be on a bridge to nowhere..." THIS IS WHY I LOVE RACHEL! Perfect injection of wit, that.

    And the utter irony on the escalator....."I wanna be straight with you"

  9. she made mince-meat of him. he was outclassed, outgunned (on his own terms), and outwitted. what a complete tool. brava, rachel.
