Confession time: I have a crush on Rachel Maddow…

December 4, 2008 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

and I am not gay! I think the crush is the kind that you have for an extremely intelligent and articulate person who you know you will never be able to win a debate against, so you simply capitulate and give her all your admiration, starry eyes and all. So far, I have only seen […]

October 5, 2008 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Sarah Palin apparently winked one too many times at the Veep debate (or five, according to some pundits. The uptight ones may have even said six!) Come on, give the old girl a break!
