My heart's all a'flutter. I feel a little 'wicked'.
What is this feeling, So sudden and new?
I felt the moment I laid eyes on you;
My pulse is rushing;
My head is reeling;
My face is flushing;
What is this feeling?
Fervent as a flame
Does it have a name?
I'll tell you what it is. . . . . it's my first lesbian crush.
"How does that work?", you may ask. Well, I'm not a lesbian (in case you were wondering), but I do have an innocent crush on a very handsome, intelligent, and funny lesbian named Rachel Maddow.
My Kieth(of the Olbermann persuasion) introduced me to her. She recently became a permanent figure on MSNBC as a political analyst. She appears frequently on "Countdown" with Keith and "Hardball" with Chris Matthews, and has played a substantial role in the primary election coverage.
I believe it's perfectly healthy to have an innocent, and distant, celebrity crush. I know my wife has a few, both male and female(Heidi Klum). In the past, I have gravitated toward elegant, long-haired, actress types such as Scarlett Johansson, Halle Berry, or Cate Blanchett. All beautiful and talented in their own feminine way.
Why, you may ask, would I have a crush on the first openly-gay Rhodes Scholar and political talk-show host for Air America Radio, that just happens to look like a 16-yr.-old boy? Because she is a mind, not a face. Every thing she says makes perfect sense to me. She consistently "zings" her older, male, and more experienced counterparts on most issues, with her dry wit and fresh perspective, and still comes off as your affable 'pal' from high school gym class (when you played softball, of course).
Since she comes from talk radio, where looks don't matter, MSNBC has done their best to 'doll' her up for the camera. They can see beyond her boyish looks, and butch delivery...as long as they can slap on a little lip-gloss, put her in a smart pant-suit, and curl her bangs, just so....so that she resembles something that looks like an adult woman.
Thank you Rachel. Your crooked smile slays me every night.
