Why has Reddit forsaken MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow? Was it because the evening host wouldn’t answer the age-old question of battling a hundre duck-sized horses or a single horse-sized duck? (She was never asked a single fight question!)TPM pointed out the ire of the scorned Redditors yesterday.
Instead the anger seems to stem from Maddow answering a paltry 20 questions instead of the expected amount by most Redditors during her Ask Me Anything. The expected result of answering every single question is common among Redditors since their expectations are only met by either Barack Obama or Bill Gates. Failure to do so results in inevitable comparisons to Woody Harrleson, r/Pyongyang and whatever else is hated on the Internet.
The questions that Maddow did answer are summed up over at her blog. Nothing may ever compare to her legendary bartending skills at last year’s White House Correspondents Dinner, but Maddow should get the benefit of a doubt. Reddit is a fickle mistress. The fact she had time for 20 questions alone is impressive when considering the speed at which the little blue alien can post. Maddow did fine. After all, you could compare her to the President of the United States or the lonely life of a butcher.
