I <3 Rachel Maddow

I could try to explain why this is, or I could simply suggest you watch the three clips below. This is the totality of Rachel Maddow's on-air interview of former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge (R). He defends the Iraq war, attempts to blame the decision to go in on intelligence agents (rather than executives and legislators), and shocks Rachel into making obvious facial disbelief. It's educating and worth watching.

Here's her follow up reflections from last night's episode.
