The ‘What A Maroon’ Award

And now, ladies and gentlemen, the moment you've all been waiting for ... This week’s “What A Maroon” award goes to...


The gaffe-prone left-wing MSNBC maven may not always know what she’s talking about, but she says it with such a straight face. In her latest foray into punditry, Maddow reveals she is clueless as to the meaning of the word “controversial.”

She expressed shock that the highly partisan senate unanimously confirmed the appointments of Leon Panetta as Secretary of Defense and Gen. David Petraeus as head of the CIA.

She called both appointments “controversial” and “unpopular with the public.”

“Controversial” and “unpopular with the public”? Really, Rachel? I seriously doubt the average American could even name the heads of Defense and CIA. And of those who can, I suspect the vast majority approve of Panetta and Petraeus.

It seems her definition of “controversial” is anything with which she disagrees and “unpopular with the public” is what her limited circle of acquaintances and fellow travelers at the MSNBC studios dislike.

Rachel needs to get out more.


In honor of the great American philosopher Bugs Bunny who first coined the phrase, I’ve decided to present the “What a Maroon” award periodically to the politician, organization or celebrity who makes the most sand-poundingly stupid statement of recent days.
