Rachel Maddow Is Sick Of You Trying To Get Her To Become a Politician

Though Scott Brown used a Facebook group’s call for Rachel Maddow to run for a U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts to drum up support in March, the rumors never died down. So Maddow is once again denying rumormongering she might float a campaign, telling an audience yesterday at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government she “will never be” a politico. (She also says she stopped “trying to change the world” as an activist on on March 9, 2007, when she helped launch Air America.) “We have made a market in electioneering that has nothing to do with taking office.”
