Is Rachel Maddow really that scary? I set my Google updates to let me know when there is an interesting Maddow story in the news, and more often than not, there is some conservative site all riled up about something she's said. The funny thing is, the Maddow they describe (Madcow, invariably) bears little resemblance to the one I watch on my teevee machine. Usually, what they have to say is so ridiculous (she's the flip-side to Ann Coulter!) it isn't even worth shooting down. But lately, conservatives are using things she hasn't even said or done to scare their conservative donors into sending them money. And Rachel wants a piece of the action!
