In a new Lean Forward promo spot for MSNBC, Politics Nation host the Rev. Al Sharpton evoked the language of the Pledge of Allegiance, sans the term "under God," ironically. Sharpton rattled off a laundry list of pet issues that MSNBC obsessed over in 2012 before dreaming of a "nation that is really living up to the creed of one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
