Because we first fell in love with Rachel Maddow by hearing her voice on Air America and then seeing her all dressed up in suits on MSNBC, we had no idea what she dressed like in her downtime. Now, because we saw her today in Denver, we know that the real Rachel Maddow actually kind of looks like Ira Glass. We dig it! Especially when you consider that Bill O’Reilly off-camera pretty much looks like Bill O’Reilly, and without makeup Chris Matthews looks like Martha Stewart. It could be much worse.
Still, we’re not sure about her neon Emerica skater kicks. Thoughts?
