From NBC-TV Meet the Press, Aug. 12, 2012. Rich Lowry is a man who can’t stand Rachel Maddow. Rachel is the “perfect storm,” the confluence of being a woman who is smart (Stanford grad, Rhodes scholar, PhD in political science, Oxford University) and publicly gay (the first gay person to win a Rhodes scholarship). Forget delving into Lowry’s life for origins of his “attitude.” Just follow his wagging finger! His behaviors (attempted domination of conversation and all the nonverbal signs of disrespect toward her) trump attitude. Lowry follows in Alex Castellanos’ shameless disregard of Maddow on Meet the Press. Both times, the feckless host, David Gregory, sat idly by.

Alex Castellanos, Republican activist & campaign funder, puts a face to condescension and a frustrated desire to dominate a smarter adversary, Rachel Maddow, host of The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC, on NBC Meet the Press (4/29/12). Check out his facial contortions after she calls him out for interrupting her, not knowing he is still on camera.
The second point that this clip illustrates are that facts aren’t facts anymore when a rationalist (Maddow) thinks facts are indisuptable and the other side (Castellanos) refuses to acknowledge anything she says. (See Chris Mooney’s new book: The Republican Brain.)
