Melissa Harris-Perry Show kicks off this past weekend, Chloe rocks the mic

I think the last time I was this excited to get up on a weekend was for Saturday morning cartoons back in ’87 (Gummi Bears, anyone?). Seriously though, I don’t doubt that every feminist in America was freaking over this past weekend’s debut of Melissa Harris-Perry’s new show on MSNBC, which was — not surprisingly — fantastic. And as a bonus, our very own Chloe was invited to come play, and rocked it big-time. Here’s a segment on the birth control debacle:

“I have an aspirin between my legs so I can’t get pregnant until the end of this show.” Amazing.

Check out any missed segments here, and MHP’s blog for updates on the show. Can’t wait to see what’s next in store. #nerdland indeed.

Anyone get to catch the show? Thoughts?

    It. Was. Brilliant! I actually felt like people were representing my views on a major news network (except for the commercials that say DRILL DRILL DRILL). HOORAY FOR THE NEW MEDIA PARADIGM!

    AMAZING! I absolutely loved this and am joyfully looking forward to more of the same.

    Chloe, you kicked so much ass. So well spoken, poised, and funny too!

    Fantastic! Thanks for introducing me to MHP (I live under a rock) – I want to go out and read everything she has ever written.
