Sunday Talking Head Thread
Here’s the Sunday Talking Head line-up. Read it and weep:
Meet the Press (NBC): Dick Cheney.
This Week (ABC): 9/11 Commission Members: Thomas H. Kean, Chair, Richard Ben-Veniste, Jamie S. Gorelick, John F. Lehman, Newsweek’s Fareed Zakaria, The Nation’s Katrina vanden Heuvel, ABC News’ Martha Raddatz, and George Will, Dr. Gene Steuerle, a 9/11 widower, shares his story of overcoming tragedy to form Our Voices Together, a nonprofit network dedicated to combating terror by exporting hope.
Face the Nation (CBS): Condi Rice, George Pataki, Chuck Schumer.
Fox News Sunday: Condi Rice, Howard Dean and a tribute to those lost on 9/11.
Late Edition (CNN): Condoleezza Rice, U.S. secretary of state; Sen. John Kerry, D-Massachusetts: Foreign Relations Committee member; Said Jawad: Afghanistan’s ambassador to the United States; Mark Malloch Brown: U.N. deputy secretary-general; Dr. Mowaffak al-Rubaie: Iraqi national security adviser; John Miller: Assistant director of the FBI for public affairs; Brian Jenkins: RAND Corporation; author, "Unconquerable Nation" and terrorism expert.
You’ll pardon me if I skip a full hour of the Timmeh and Dick show. Blergh. Wonder if the green room at This Week will be a bit chilly with Tom Kean and the rest of the 9/11 Commission basking in the glow of his sell-out of history and decency — especially since his smarmy tap dancing to sell the turd of a GOP-u-drama has now tainted the entire 9/11 Commission’s claim to bi-partisan integrity? And Late Edition could be interesting, depending on whether Kerry gets asked appropriate questions (which, considering it’s Blitzer, isn’t exactly a given, but some of the other guests could be good as well) — guess we’ll see.
Today’s bird is a scaled quail, shot in Texas. (The photo was shot in Texas, I mean. No particular reason, why do you ask?)
