Sunday Talking Head Thread

Here's the Sunday Talking Head line-up.  Read it and peep:  (Partially via the CantonRep.)

C-Span's Washington Journal:  7:30am – Perry Bacon, Washington Post, Staff Writer; 8am – Rep. Nick Rahall (D-WVA), 3rd District: Bluefield, Huntington, Beckley; 9am – Nancy Youssef, McClatchy Newspapers, Fmr. Baghdad Bureau Chief; 9:30am – Thomas Lippman, Middle East Institute, Adjunct Scholar.

ABC’s “This Week” — Sens. Carl Levin, D-Mich., and Jon Kyl, R-Ariz.; Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., and his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry; Walter Isaacson, author of “Einstein: His Life and Universe.”

CBS’ “Face the Nation” — Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

NBC’s “Meet the Press” — David Gregory, chief White House correspondent, NBC News; Kate O’Beirne, Washington editor, National Review; Chuck Todd, political director, NBC News; and Judy Woodruff, senior correspondent, PBS’ “The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.”

CNN’s “Late Edition” — Sens. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., and Joe Lieberman, I-Conn.; former Wisconsin Gov.

David Grange; Washington Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, archbishop emeritus.

“Fox News Sunday” — Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.; former House Speaker Newt Gingrich; Christopher Buckley, author of “Boomsday.”

The Meet the Press description is as follows:  "President Bush and congressional Democrats again square off over Iraq War funding, while the president's embattled attorney general prepares to testify under oath about the eight fired U.S. attorneys. On the campaign front, the 'money primary' is already in full swing — a stunning 19 months before the 2008 Presidential election."  They need to start calling this:  "Can't Book Guests, Because Dick Cheney Controls Me."  (You are welcome, *xyz.  You knew I had to work it in eventually for you.)

We're enjoying an Easter basket here this morning — Peter Cottontail hippity-hopped to our house this morning, and The Peanut is wearing a cute little set of lamb ears while coloring with her new crayons and eating a healthy breakfast of a candy bracelet.  It's good to be a kid.  Happy Easter to one and all.
