  1. Like Rachel or not, she sure has a good show.

    And Kenji Yoshino is damned cute.

  2. We've been fighting a vote to allow legal *discrimination* of LGBT community members, here in West Michigan - so we've got a ways to go, to catch up to the national goal of marriage equality. A long ways...

  3. I did watch this clip but usually don't; she takes forever sometimes... If you want to hear Kenji, start nearly 3/4's through.

    I love the power question for the courts; if gays have so much political power, how come 41 states have laws prohibiting our marriage rights.

    Can't wait for the tapes... this is going to be good.

  4. It was sad to see Rachel mocking the lawyer for the Prop 8 side for his lack of fame and making fun of the pronunciation of Reince Priebus' name. She doesn't need to stoop to that level. She's better than that.

    I love Rachel but agree that the show's hour-long format forces her to belabor every point. You can tell that doesn't come naturally to her, because she is always pithy and on point during her live political coverage. If MSNBC is going to give someone as smart and wry and articulate as Maddow 5 hours a week, they should give her the budget and staff to research and write more pieces. It's really a waste of her talent and our time.

  6. clear arguments from Kenji, but there are actually only 40 states with laws prohibiting our marriage rights. New Mexico doesn't have anything on the books.
