1991 Daily quote proves Rachel Maddow is better than you.

By

Rachel Maddow ’94, the Ira Glass look-a-like and defining liberal voice of MSNBC is never one to shy away from taking a strong stance on tough issues. It appears, in light of a recently unearthed Internet treasure, that she’s been at the whole controversial statement game for a while now; Maddow, who got her degree from Stanford in public policy, was quoted in a 1991 Daily article, saying that Trojan condoms are “butt-white, clinical and smell like old tires. Why would you want to roll a rubber tire on your schlonger?” I don’t know the context. I don’t really need to. This only confirms my feelings that Rachel Maddow is 100% smarter and funnier than the rest of us.
