Rachel's 'Sane Republican' segment an absolute triumph tonight!

Postby Marie » Mon May 02, 2016 9:10 pm

A 52-year-old Democratic campaign ad for Lyndon Johnson featured a for-real scared Republican who wrestled on camera with his misgivings over Barry Goldwater. Rachel discovered the ad and showed it a week ago.

Since then, this long-buried ad has garnered millions of views and caused all the protagonist's old friends to get back in touch with him!

Not only that -- Rachel's people managed to locate the guy, so Rachel could ask him how his thoughts about the '64 race compare with 2016. He was there tonight, and the interview was amazing!

You find out what someone is really like in "battle," and Olbermann is who you want to be in a foxhole with, Patrick said. "On the air, we had each others' backs," said Olbermann.
