Melissa Harris Perry is one of the best educators anywhere, any time, any when.

Any when?

Anyway...

Some of my favorite moments:

"Maybe [Beck] missed the 18th century?"

...

"I think that takes away any ANY possibility that what [the right wingers] actually care about is rule and governance by the people themselves."

...

I just love it when we can quote George W. Bush for the uses and purposes of defending President Obama. That kinda makes my day."

And finally:

This reaction to an actual revolution occurring in a non-violent way by the people of Egypt in exactly the place that their last president said it should occur, the fact that it is happening there and they're not supporting it, tells us that they are NOT for the people of this country either.

UPDATED.

Via a USABreakingNews email alert:

In an address to the nation, and the world moments ago, President Obama said that this is one of those moments where history unfolds right in front of us. He also congratulated the people of Egypt for their success in seeking democracy. The President also said that the Egyptian military must now oversee democracy and a fair election as well as an orderly transition.
