    Rachel dear you do go on. We get it. You told us about six different times in six different ways what happened. We get it, we got it the first time. We see the irony, the happenstance, the arc of the speculative moral universe. Relax, you talk too fast anyway.

    Related comment to Maddow sign-off:

    Why does MSNBC become “The Prison Channel” during the weekend?Do prison shows get such good ratings that they are a decent filler? Do people enjoy prison shows that much? Are the plots so great? (Spoiler: No one escapes.)

    I think it kind of demeans the rest of the MSNBC programming. Is there some connection between the two audiences? Do liberals enjoy prison shows? Or, conversely, are more convicts liberal? Certainly, they are not liberated.

    If other news channels did the same thing, it might be interesting. Fox News would be replaced on weekends by shows about the learning-impaired. CNN would be replaced by programs that show deer caught in headlights and unable to move from the middle of the road.

    Just a thought.

    …. and the next story we will hear, will be the Prop H8 proponents demanding a NEW TRIAL because it’s obvious – Cooper intentionally lost the case because his own daughter is a lesbian. This will happen.

    @gr8guyca – it’s been discussed before, maybe even by rachel. the reality based documentary news specials on the weekends are some of the highest ratings msnbc gets, and it pays for a lot of the other programming. they are adding in weekend daytime programming slowly, but don’t have anything nearly as popular for weekend nights or holidays. if you think they’re alone, check out cnbc at nights and on weekends, they aren’t much different.

    @Gr8guy – LOL! It’s best when Rachel blathers about gay rights right before a documentary about gay prison rape.

    @NorthAL – So basically nobody watches the actual content of MSNBC. That’s certainly no surprise. You can only take so much of “I’m [Chris Matthews / Ed Schultz / Al Sharpton / Rachel Maddow / Lawrence O’Donnell] and here are the latest things those Republican wackos are doing to try and take away your rights” before you actually start to prefer shows about gay prison rape.

    In many commentaries about LA keeping their anti-sodomy laws, most seem to miss the real reason. In sex ed, such as it is in LA, teachers are required to say homosexual acts are against the LA law. because the law was retained they are telling the truth.

    Baton Rouge.. f no. That made me mad. However, we should be accepting and welcoming the attorney as he enlightens himself. I don’t think it’s news or respectably to call him out. I agree, everyone should see that there is no big agenda or life crushing consequences to gay people being around. Some people don’t get it, take their time getting it, and have their own rights not to get it. Let’s be accepting and welcoming to those who come around… its what we are fighting for.

    Gus, spot on! Good point.

    Too bad that we’re winning the marriage war, but making no progress in employment rights.

    In most of the South, being gay means that you can’t hold a job (without the manager’s acceptance…).
