Recently, viewers of The Rachel Maddow Show have noticed that Rachel Maddow has been out, due to the flu. And last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, she revealed she had the swine flu! (She's one of those 1 in 10 New Yorkers!)

After Fallon gave her some hand sanitizer, Maddow explained she spent her week watching I, Claudius and reading graphic novels about Sarajevo and Palestine. And she was required to wear a mask when she went the hospital! Below, Maddow describes swine flu, the health care debate, and going to the shooting range—and after the jump, Maddow mixes Fallon a cocktail—the White Lady.
