Rachel Maddow at the Steinbeck Center

02/25/12 09:17PM

Rachel flew out to California this afternoon, to San Jose where the Steinbeck Center is honoring her with a Steinbeck Award. Even though this is a sold-out ticketed event, the Steinbeck folks were nice enough to share a live stream with us.The event is scheduled to get started at 7:30 p.m. California time, so 10:30 p.m. ET, and run an hour and a half. I'm not sure what the format is. I get the impression it's an interview with Rachel. If you miss the live webcast, we're going to try to take the recording of this event and upload it to the video server. read more

What was the Romney campaign thinking?

02/24/12 03:40PM

Remember the infamous Green Screen speech that John McCain delivered in 2008? And how widely panned it was as a political disaster and evidence of campaign incompetence? Mitt Romney's speech in Detroit today was significantly worse.For reasons that defy comprehension, the Romney campaign decided to unveil a new economic agenda -- the one he announced just last month apparently wasn't very good -- at Ford Field, a football stadium with 65,000 seats.The problem, of course, is that he only brought along 1,200 friends to watch. read more
