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.)
