    With Romney & Santorum...and some joshing about who is the most handsome.

    " The jokes– particularly Maddow chiming in with “I’m no expert” on handsome men– are on their face completely hilarious– and challenging their appropriateness will inspire an inevitable chorus demanding one “lighten up,” but they nonetheless raise a serious question: would this sort of joking around seem as merry and not-creepy if they were talking about Sarah Palin or Hillary Clinton? Is the fact that all the people being objectified and mocked here are men what makes it passable as comedy for major cable news anchors and analysts (Heilemann, of course, co-wrote the definitive 2008 tome Game Change) and, if so, is that acceptable at such high levels of broadcasting?"

    I'm not homosexual but I've always felt Maddow is a handsome fella himself.
