As I watch Rachel Maddow tonight, and I listen to her ‘raspy’ voice I can only think two things. The first is that I am so glad she is back, but the second is that I wonder why her voice is suddenly raspy, when it was clear that when she called into her show on Friday, her voice was loud and clear?

I love Rachel, but I feel that she let the human instinct to grab money over grabbing the truth take over during the last week-and-a-half, and that is disappointing. You can bet the ‘powers-that-be’told Rachel that after her almost two-week protest over Megyn Kelly that she had better sound sick when she finally returned to her show. You can bet, but that is speculation on my part.

There is a lot of money at stake here, and I always wanted to believe, perhaps naively, that Rachel Maddow wasn’t about money. Perhaps I was wrong, or perhaps she was standing up for those using money for power in the wrong way.
