Sunday Talking Head Thread


Here’s the Sunday Talking Head schedule for today:

Meet the Press (NBC):  A morning of Sunday exclusives. First, the ranking member of the Sen. Foreign Relations Cmte., Joe Biden (D-DE), and fmr. Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) on the Middle East, Iraq, North Korea & the upcoming elections. Then, Robert Novak on his role – and his sources – in the CIA leak probe.

This Week (ABC):  Condoleezza Rice, U.S. Secretary of State; Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State; Newsweek’s Fareed Zakaria, along with "This Week’s" classic roundtablers — Sam Donaldson, Cokie Roberts and George Will — join [Stephanopoulos] to debate the week’s politics; also, U.S. Olympic gold medalist Kerri Strug talks about her new passion — working as a presidential appointee at the Department of Justice to combat juvenile crime nationwide.

Face the Nation (CBS):  Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of State; Richard Haass, President, Council on Foreign Relations; Rep. Jane Harman, Ranking Member, Select Intelligence Committee, Democrat – California; Lara Logan, Chief Foreign Correspondent, CBS News; Jim Axelrod, Chief White House Correspondent, CBS News.

FOX News Sunday:  Condoleezza Rice;  Plus, Sens. George Allen and Chris Dodd; and, Philipe Cousteau. 

Late Edition (CNN):  Dan Bartlett: White House counselor; Shimon Peres: Israeli vice premier; Imad Moustapha: Syrian ambassador to the United States; Sen. Trent Lott: R-Mississippi: Select Intelligence Committee member; Sen. Dianne Feinstein: D-California: Select Intelligence Committee member; Dr. Mowaffak al-Rubaie: Iraqi national security adviser; Khurshid Mahmood Kasuri: Pakistan’s foreign minister; Fouad Ajami: Professor of Middle East studies, Johns Hopkins University; author, "The Foreigner’s Gift"; The Astronauts of space shuttle Discovery.

So, the Middle East is exploding, tensions between India and Pakistan are still high after that train bombing, Condi Rice is spending her morning doing the talk shows, and I’m sure there’s a line around the block to watch the exclusive match-up on Meet the Press of…Newt Gingrich and Joe Biden?!? 


The photo of the fawn and horse munching on some grass together came into my in-box via readers CaptainAnn and T-, and it was too cute not to use this morning.  Apparently, the fawn’s mama came out to claim her child after a while, but the horses just hung out with the inquisitive fawn for a while munching grass and strolling around the meadow.  Adorable.

Well, I’ll be watching Toy Story this morning — it’s been Woody and Buzz, alla time, here for the last few days.  And we got some new books yesterday, so I think I’ll have to pass up the Gingrich/Biden teevee fest (darn!  feel my sadness…) for an extended story time. 

Document the bobblehead fun below.  And remember, just because a goodly portion of the world looks like it’s about to blow itself up, that doesn’t mean the President needs to concern himself about it.  Just go take a bike ride — Bushie does!  Sure hope this stooopid work stuff doesn’t cut into his annual entire month off for vacation cutting brush in August…
