The Last Word staff is celebrating our second birthday! Ice cream and cake all around.

This baby’s come a long way since that first episode on September 27, 2010. If you remember, we were heading into the midterm elections and Christine (no relation) O’Donnell was running for office. During that inaugural show, Lawrence O’Donnell interviewed Vice President Joe Biden as our very first guest.

As we’ve gotten older, and, like, way more mature, this year we experimented with interviewing an empty chair. (Eastwooding before there was Eastwooding!)

Our fearless host also swapped his own seat at the anchor desk with Alec Baldwin, James Lipton and even our interns.

The election year gave us many Rewrites to be proud of and too many #batcrap crazy moments to count.

The Last Word viewers got more involved in the action, creating button designs for our official Off The Cliff contest and, even more dramatically, helping us raise nearly $4.5 million for the K.I.N.D. Fund, our joint program with UNICEF to supply desks to school children in Malawi.

You guys rock. On behalf of the whole staff, I want to thank you for watching the show and taking part of the discussion on the website, Facebook and Twitter. Let’s keep it going for many more years to come.
