Rachel Maddow: ‘I’m Much More Mr. Cunningham’

Did everyone catch SNL‘s cold open the other night featuring Rachel Maddow interviewing Roland Burris and Gov. Blago?

Looks like Rachel Maddow did (no doubt on her online machine)! During the segment Blago addresses Maddow as, among other things, Billie Jean King, Ellen, K.D. Lang, Chachi, and Kyle McLaughlin. Not so, according to Maddow’s Twitter! Turns out she relates to an entirely different Happy Days character. (On a side note: what’s with the recent trend of comparing Maddow to characters from bygone TV shows?)
