I love Rachel Maddow so fucking much I could shit

That's probably not as intense a declaration of admiration as you might think it is: I shit about a lot of things. Still, I am a huge fan. She's wicked smart, sure, but that's not what I like best about her. 
She's so damn classy! Maddow's voice is a cheerful anomaly in a cable news culture dominated by truculent bloviators like Bill O'Reilly and, yeah, okay, Keith Olbermann. And a blogosphere characterized by... mumble, mumble. 
  This clip is a couple weeks old, but if you haven't seen it, watch how Maddow responds to David Frum's appalling lack of manners. The former speechwriter for George W. Bush makes a point of unkindly critiquing Maddow's style as "snarky." Maddow never takes the bait, and offers only thanks for the fucking douchebag's time:

Hats off, gentlemen. This is a classy broad.
