Today's fun video: Maddow on Idaho GOP convention


Normally, one wouldn't expect for MSNBC's Rachel Maddow to mention the Idaho Republican convention, let alone do a whole segment on it. It would be sort of like expecting Fox's Sean Hannity to do a segment on Seattle's $15 minimum wage.

But Maddow seemed to delight in the Idaho GOP's meltdown in Moscow, possibly in part because it gave her a chance to play snippets from the Idaho gubernatorial debate which remains a favorite on the Internet.

It's probably not because she enjoys showing off The Spokesman-Review logo and headlines. But hey, it's a free plug and we'll take it.
