In honor of the Melissa Harris-Perry Show’s one year anniversary.
“All hail the Queen of Nerdland!” — Me
Congratulations on the one year anniversary of your show
(It’s one of my favorites, you know).
You’ve got it all: Beauty, brains, and personality,
And in contrast to the folks at Fox News, collegiality.
(Plus, I love that you love to smile,
I love that you have a full two hours,
Which the show to cover issues in more depth empowers.
You also add a perspective that has too long been missing,
And hence too often subject to dismissing.
You’ve had one year, and I’m sure will have many more
(You and Chris are what we wake up on the weekend for).
And so, Melissa Harris-Perry,
Happy One Year Annilissaperry!
