Sunday Talking Head Thread


Here is the Sunday Talking Head show schedule.

FOX NEWS SUNDAY (WTTG), 9 a.m.: White House press secretary Tony Snow , New Democrat Network President Simon Rosenberg and Center for American Progress President John D. Podesta.

THIS WEEK (ABC, WJLA): Preempted by World Cup coverage.

FACE THE NATION (CBS, WUSA), 10:30 a.m.: Sens. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.) and Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.); and Snow.

MEET THE PRESS (NBC, WRC), 10:30 a.m.: Rep. John P. Murtha (D-Pa.), Shell Oil Co. President John Hofmeister , ConocoPhillips Co. Chairman James J. Mulva and Chevron Corp. Chairman David J. O’ Reilly

LATE EDITION (CNN), 11 a.m.: Sens. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.); Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari , former secretary of state Lawrence S. Eagleburger , former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski and Snow.

So much for that honeymoon period for Tony Snowjob — guess saying that 2500 deceased American soldiers is "a number" was a bit insensitive and he’s forced to do clean-up for himself and his big mouth this morning. Gee, ya think?

With Rep. Murtha on Meet the Press, that could be a good interview.  He did an amazing job managing the Dems floor debate on the sham non-binding Republican Iraq resolution, and his personal commitment on this issue is an amazing thing to see. 

Blitzer has some interesting guests on today as well — Zbigniew Brzezinski has been very outspoken in his criticisms of this Administration’s piss poor planning and the idiocy from the Pentagon’s civilians, and Lawrence Eagleburger has been less than kool-aidy at times as well.

Today’s photo is a male Anna’s hummingbird, taking advantage of a birdbath for a quick dip.  It’s going to be a scorcher here today, so that might be a good idea for us, too.  Need to get out and refill my bird feeders pronto before the male cardinal sitting on my car, chirping at the window, gets disgusted and flies off in a huff.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.  I was fortunate to grow up with an amazing father who believed in me with everything he had — which is exactly what every kid needs.  So to all of you doing the important work of being dads, thank you.
