Last night Jesse LaGreca appeared again on The Ed Show! This marks his third appearance on MSNBC and hope to see him as a regular nightly staple!
It might become a natural habit of mine to write these diaries after the fact but I am honored to be writing them in the first place. I was not able to go with Jesse to the studio last night as I was traveling for Thanksgiving festivities but I think he did an amazing job again and am proud to call him a friend. Finally having a progressive voice in the media is a beautiful and most welcome thing. Tonight Jesse got to take down five of the leading republicans as Ed asked him about specific comments the top right wing presidential candidates cough *hacks* about #OWS.
Ed had Jesse on to to discuss in part his diary that he posted on Dailykos entitled:

Statement: "Occupy Wall Street protesters are (insert distracting Right Wing talking point about socialism/anarchy/personal insults here)"
Answer: "Don't change the subject. Conservatives who hated Martin Luther King Jr used to say the same thing about him."
