Sunday Talking Head Thread


Here's the Sunday talking head line-up for the shows.  Read it and weep:  (via the WaPo)

ABC's "This Week" _ Reps. Tom Reynolds, R-N.Y., and Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill.; former Secretary of State James Baker; actress Patricia Heaton, spokeswoman for Cure Autism Now.

CBS' "Face the Nation" _ Reps. Tom Davis, R-Va., and Ray LaHood, R-Ill.

NBC's "Meet the Press" _ Sen. Jim Talent, R-Mo., and his Democratic opponent, state auditor Claire McCaskill; journalist Bob Woodward.

CNN's "Late Edition" _ Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari; Sens. Joseph Biden, D-Del., and John Cornyn, R-Texas; former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan.

"Fox News Sunday" _ Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga.; conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and Citizens United President David Bossie; retired Maj. Gen. Edward F. Grillo Jr., president of the Air Force Memorial Foundation.

C-Span's Washington Journal:  7am – Newspaper Headlines & Viewer Phone Calls; 7:30am – Carl Forti, Nat’l Republican Congressional Cmte., Communications Dir.; 8:15am – Newspaper Headlines & Viewer Phone Calls; 9am – Aaron Friedberg, V.P. Cheney’s Former Adviser For Security Affairs (2003-05); 9:30am – Andrew North, BBC, Baghdad Correspondent

Today's bird is an eastern wood-peewee.  Thought the name of this little fellow was particularly appropriate for what a lot of the discussion this morning is likely to be about, with Tom Reynolds on the guest list for This Week and Tony Perkins and Laura Ingraham on Fox, and Pat Buchanan on CNN and all.

Given that yesterday was the five year anniversary of the start of American operations in Afghanistan, and Sen. John Warner's pronouncement of things tanking in Iraq, and the whole Foley mess, and the new piss poor poll numbers for George Bush and the Republican party…well, it ought to be an interesting morning of spin.
