Here's a quick look at Our Gal Rachel, reporting briefly on The Today Show on her embedding with American troops in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan. She gives us a brief overview of the counterinsurgency strategy and where we stand on the eventual withdrawal of troops from the region:
Maddow is not a sit on the sidelines reporter. Her show has consistently given us news first-hand, whether it's an oilspill or now, a war zone, with award-winning, quality journalism. She and her team go the extra mile to make it happen, giving us insight we would not normally have as viewers. Tonight and tomorrow (July 6th and 7th) Rachel will be broadcasting live from Afghanistan at 6 p.m. Pacific on MSNBC. For my money, it'll be some of the most honest and direct reporting we'll see - a definite must-see!
I refuse to cave to a minivan. I am still a tomboy - comfortable in Levi's, my Yankees cap and Converse. And I always have a political opinion...hell, I always have an opinion, period. The hubby, my kids and my friends think I should run for office. Maybe one day. But for now, Momma Politico blogs.
Peruse, enjoy, and know that our busy lives are as significant as those in The Washington Post. Cheers, Heidi Haines AKA Perry MacNeil Momma Politico firstname.lastname@example.org
