This is a high school picture of a perilously liberal television news host:
Can you guess who it is? (answer follows, h/t TVNewser):
Tough to believe that's Rachel Maddow:
The "before" picture apparently comes from her high school yearbook.
For those interested, Maddow grew up in Castro Valley, California, which is a town a few miles away from Oakland across the Bay from San Francisco.
Exit question: would Maddow's program be more popular if she was still a blond, or would her liberal views still interfere with her success?
