[…] my favorite Rachel Maddow story involves my daughter and her first Barbie Doll.
Rachel came to my daughter’s third birthday party, and presented my daughter with a blonde haired Barbie with it’s hair cropped short and dressed in a Ken Doll Tuxedo.
Rachel referred to her as “Barbie in comfortable shoes”.
My daughter loved that Barbie doll, and the graduates at Smith College loved Rachel Maddow on Sunday.

You all should give Maddow’s speech a watch, here. I loved the analogy to Carrie Nation’s stupidity — it was such an apt message, all of it, and there’s nothing about this woman that I do not absolutely love.
