We’ll have much more on the blog later tonight about the Ryan pick, but you’d be amiss if you missed Melissa’s one-of-a-kind take on Ryan and the politics of the selection on our special-edition show today, which airs at 11:00am ET for an hour only. (We’ll be back to our regular two hours next Saturday and Sunday.) I don’t even want to tease Melissa’s take too much, but suffice to say, it’s unique. Our guests will include:
- Rep. Chris Van Hollen (R-MD), ranking member of the House Budget Committee which Rep. Ryan chairs.
- Rob Zerban, Ryan’s Democratic opponent in the Wisconsin congressional race (he’s still running).
- Joy Reid, managing editor of theGrio, and an msnbc contributor.
- Raul Reyes, attorney and NBC Latino contributor.
- Ari Melber, correspondent for The Nation, and a former national staffer for John Kerry’s campaign in 2004. Also an msnbc contributor.
As always, folks – be sure to interact with us during the show here in the comments of this post, on Facebook, and on Twitter, using the hashtag #nerdland. We look forward to having you join us at 10am ET on msnbc!
