“Resist We Much!”… Al Sharpton Tapped to Host His Own MSNBC Show

New hope for MSNBC–
Professional race-hustler Al Sharpton was awarded his own prime time show on MSNBC Tuesday.
Thank you, MSNBC. We look forward to more belly laughs.

“But, resist we much.”

Finally, MSNBC gets some real talent.
After a short disastrous tryout, MSNBC awarded Al Sharpton with his own show.
The AP reported:

After several weeks in a tryout role, the Rev. Al Sharpton has officially been named host of a weeknight hour on MSNBC.

The program, now called “PoliticsNation,” will air at 6 p.m. Eastern and premieres next Monday, the network announced Tuesday.

In his new role, the well-known civil rights activist and minister will lead a lively and informed discussion of the day’s top headlines, MSNBC said.

Sharpton called the hosting job “a natural extension of my life work and growth.”

Besides his work as a community leader and religious figure, Sharpton already hosts a nationally syndicated radio show. He was a candidate for the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination that eventually went to U.S. Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts.

The 6 p.m. hour serves as an important lead-in to MSNBC’s weeknight slate that includes Chris Matthews, Laurence O’Donnell, Rachel Maddow and Ed Schultz. The network has done a swift reconfiguration in prime time since the abrupt departure of its marquee host, Keith Olbermann, in January. Olbermann took his show to Current TV.
