This is Rachel Maddow, arguably the smartest woman on television.
She's the GOP's nightmare. As a Rolling Stone profile put it:
She's America's leading lefty wonk, complete with chunky glasses, Ph.D., and a deep faith in activist government. But Rachel Maddow is also, a little unexpectedly, totally into guns.
Well, maybe not totally unexpected if the liberal you are talking to has actually taken the time to read the U.S. Constitution, understands the roots of violence (it's more likely associated with booze than bullets), knows statistics and American history, and has been to a firing range a few times.
