Rachel Maddow Talks Olbermann, Mixes a Shot, On Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens Live’

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow was a guest on Bravo’s talk show “Watch What Happens Live” last night. Maddow–an acclaimed mixologist–whipped up a shot version of the Negroni, which she drank on a huge wooden ski (a “shotski”) along with host Andy Cohen and guest Jenni Pulos.

Maddow also played a few other games, and talked about Keith Olbermann‘s abrupt departure from Current TV:

On Olbermann’s departure, Maddow said she was “Totally shocked.”

“I only read about it in the paper like everybody else, but I did not know it was coming. It was crazy. I am a liberal, I want there to be lots of places for people to be liberal on TV… I want Current to do well.”

Finally, Maddow played “Politico or Rapper, Yo!” where she was read quotes, and had to decide whether they were spoken by a politician, or a rapper.
