Late Tuesday night, longtime New York Times editor Howell Raines joined MSNBC’s The 11th Hour to gush over the “historic night” in his home state of Alabama and declare that Democrat Doug Jones’s victory put the state on “the indisputably right road” “for the first time in 175 years.”

Channeling Michelle Obama, Raines sounded like he was finally proud to be an Alabamian, telling host Brian Williams before Williams could ask a question that “[i]t's a historic night in Alabama, I think.”
