Sunday Morning Talking Head Thread
Here are today’s talking head show guests, via the WaPo:
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (WTTG), 9 a.m.: Sen. Christopher J. Dodd (D-Conn.); Reps. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) and Mike Pence (R-Ind.); and Placido Domingo , general director of the Washington National Opera.
THIS WEEK (ABC, WJLA), 9 a.m.: Sens. Russell Feingold (D-Wis.) and Bill Frist (R-Tenn.).
FACE THE NATION (CBS, WUSA), 10:30 a.m.: Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.).
MEET THE PRESS (NBC, WRC), 10:30 a.m.: Sens. George Allen (R-Va.) and Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.); Michael R. Gordon , author; retired Marine Lt. Gen. Bernard Trainor , author.
LATE EDITION (CNN), 11 a.m.: Sens. Carl M. Levin (D-Mich.) and John W. Warner (R-Va.); Zalmay Khalilzad , U.S. ambassador to Iraq; Howard Dean , chairman of the Democratic National Committee; John Edwards , former Democratic vice presidential candidate; Jack Kemp , former Republican vice presidential candidate.
Some interesting combinations this morning — my fave is the Feingold-Frist match-up on This Week, with the Biden/Allen match-up running a distant last. Use this thread for some discussion on the shows and news of the morning. I’ll be putting up some Traitorgate news this morning as I finish some analysis and fact-finding.
It’s so great to be back home and on the blog. Meeting Jane and so many other big bloggers was fantastic, but I missed you guys. Weren’t our subs phenomenal? We couldn’t have asked for a better crew to keep everyone informed — and amused!
(This morning’s lovely birding selection is an American goldfinch — male — in it’s spring plumage. Isn’t he gorgeous? I have a flock that feeds at my thistle feeder every Spring. That pointed little beak is perfect for digging out thistle and other seeds from my feeders and my flower beds — especially the ones from my coneflowers. This great photo was taken by Laura Erickson for the sales site of Binoculars.com.)
UPDATE: Just a friendly heads up that the Koufax voting ends this evening at 11:59 pm (ET? Not sure, so if you haven’t voted, do so early.) The folks at Wampum do a fantastic job coordinating this insanity, so show them some love and vote for your favorite progressive blogs — show all of them a little love, too. Firedoglake is nominated in the Best Blog (non-professional), Best Series, Best Expert Blog, and Best Group Blog categories. And I’ve gotten a nod in the Best Writing category (although I voted for Digby, just FYI).
Please go and cast votes for all your faves. Thanks everyone — the Koufaxes mean a lot to everyone in the progressive blogosphere, and there is a huge amount of talent in each and every category. And a big thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate Jane and me, truly it means a lot.
