Just when you thought Rachel Maddow could not get more cloyingly annoying, she outdoes herself again.
There she was on her MSNBC show last night, talking about about how she must interview Dick Cheney about his memoirs, seeing how he'll be appearing on "Dateline NBC," "Today" and "Morning Joe" (video after page break) --
Former vice president Dick Cheney has a book now. I have not read it, don't have a copy yet. But thanks to Charlie Savage at the New York Times reading it, we know that while Dick Cheney was unconscious for weeks last year after heart surgery, he "had a prolonged vivid dream that he was living in an Italian villa, pacing the stone paths to get coffee and newspapers."
We also know that his one regret about his time as vice president is that he did not start enough wars. Mr. Cheney's book says he argued for bombing Syria in 2007.
Mr. Cheney's first interview about his book will air Sunday on "Dateline NBC." He'll be on the "Today" show Tuesday and then "Morning Joe" on Thursday.
Will Dick Cheney ever be on this show, will he? I very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very much hope so. Someday.
Maddow must think her liberal viewers consider this sort of thing charming, as opposed to infantile.
