NewsBusters: Calling Maddow Pretty A 'Unique Choice'
Topic: NewsBusters

A Dec. 18 NewsBusters post by Scott Whitlock bashes Stephen King for liking thte show "Breaking Bad" for "examining the American dream: shiny and addictive on top, hollow at the core. And dark. Very dark." Whitlock then sneers: "Hasn’t King made millions of dollars off the "hollow" American dream?"

But then Whitlock adds: "In a unique choice, he also praised Rachel Maddow as 'insightful' and 'pretty in a no-nonsense way.'"

Why is a "unique choice" to call Maddow pretty? Alas, Whitlock fails to elaborate. But the commenters on Whitlock's post are more than happy to do so:

  • Based on his spectacles and assesment of Ms. Maddow it is also clear that he is myopic.
  • King's writing shows a taste that favors the macabre, and the guy hails from Maine.  No surprise, then, that he thinks MadSow is pretty and leans to the Left.
  • Yes, she would fit perfectly into one of your novels.
  • I'm quite certain that Maddow's makeup patterned on Stephen King's Pennywise character from "It".
  • I find it odd that he thinks a man is "pretty in an on nonsense kind of way".
  • Can someone post a photo of Maddow next to one of King?  I think it will be obvious why he thinks his clone is pretty.
  • Rachel Maddow looks a lot like a guy I knew in high school -- a good friend of mine, actually. She's not a bad-looking guy.
  • Oh come on he is a lot prettier than Madcow is

You stay classy, NewsBusters folks.
