A Tale of Two Michelles

I’ve never been that fond of Melissa Harris-Perry, because I’ve never found her very exciting—she has never really been willing to get dirty, in an intellectual sense. It’s the sort of thing that would make her a great college professor (which she is), but not a political commentator. However, she’s really improved. She hosted The Last Word tonight and presented a great essay about race and the whole myth that, “Republicans are patriotic, Democrats are not, and it doesn’t matter what they do, that’s just the way it is.” This is simply excellent.

Melissa Harris-Perry is one to watch. I may even begin seeking her out the way I now do Chris Hayes.
