Maybe it's nothing new, but lately the Rachel Maddow rap is just horrible. Not that I've been watching her a lot, but it seems that every time I wander by, she's on some smirking rant. I couldn't even cite a topic and it doesn't matter. Unwatchable.
Politics is the answer. Just ask Fox News. (Or Olbermann.)
The Huffington Post:
Fox News has terminated the contracts of Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, Politico reported Thursday.Come on, Rachel. Lean forward. Right off that bridge.
The two were suspended as contributors to the network in early March, due to the widespread belief that both were running for the GOP nomination in the 2012 race.
At the time, Fox News said that their contracts would be terminated on May 1st unless they made it clear that they had ruled out runs for the presidency. Since then, though, both have gone further down the path towards a campaign. Santorum launched an exploratory committee on Tuesday, and Gingrich has sent increasingly vocal signals that he is entering the race.
