I'm looking forward to the book. Rachel is one of my favorite talking heads. She has a delivery style that is seductive.   I dont care if she is sometimes called the "Lesbian Vampire".   She only drinks the blood of tea partiers and the other part is irrelevant.

If not married to my "true love"  :)  I'd pursue Rachel.   Oh the lady has one sexy brain.  She and her staff are about the only people that do true investigative journalism anymore.

Well observed Vel. You might want to read Dan Rathers new book; Rather Outspoken.  He writes a lot about the corporitization and politicalization of the media.  Sad, but almost surely true. Old fashioned, tell it like it is, journalism is in the toilet.
