Sunday Morning Fraudsters, Fighters, Showboats, and Closet Queens

mitch_mcconnell_head_shot.jpgI'll let you decide which is which [my comments in italics]:

ABC's "This Week"  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.; Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.; talk show host Rachael Ray. [Rachel Ray?  What, Sarah Lee wasn't available?  Thank God we have Nancy up against the Nancy Boy]


CBS' "Face the Nation"  Sens. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., and Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; military historian Fred Kagan; retired Army Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton.  [Because you can never get enough of the Kagan family to screw up a country]


NBC's "Meet the Press" Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., presidential candidate; former House Speaker Newt Gingrich; Douglas Brinkley, editor of President Reagan's diaries; Michael Deaver, Reagan's deputy chief of staff; Ed Meese, Reagan administration attorney general.  [Monsignor Tim dispenses communion at the Blessed Chapel of St. Ronnie of the Central American Death Squads]


CNN's "Late Edition" Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff; Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez; Sens. Carl Levin, D-Mich., and Mel Martinez, R-Fla.; Rep. Brian Bilbray, R-Calif.; Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, presidential candidate; Shibley Telhami of the Brookings Institution; Vali Nasr of the Council on Foreign Relations. [Spot any progressives?  Nah. Me neither.  But these are People To Be Taken Seriously, including, apparently, Ron Paul, after he says a few things the rest of us unserious people have been. . . Saying.  For.  Years.]


"Fox News Sunday" Sens. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor; Paul Hays, former House reading clerk.  [Because one GOP closet queen on Sunday morning is just never enough]

It should be interesting to see what Schumer has to say about the state of play on Bertie Walnuts.  Other than that, another bleak morning mostly comprised of right wing imperial mendacity, all in all.

Shorter Sunday talk shows:  James who?

Alabama preacher's loudspeaker silenced by noise ordinance



Pachacutec did not, as is commonly believed, die in 1471. To escape the tragic sight of his successors screwing up the Inca Empire he’d built, he fled east into the Amazon rain forest, where he began chewing lots of funky roots to get higher than Hunter Thompson ever dared. Oddly, these roots gave him not only a killer buzz, but also prolonged his life beyond what any other mortal has known, excluding Novakula. Whatever his doubts of the utility of living long enough to see old friends pop up in museums as mummies, or witness the bizarrely compelling spectacle of Katherine Harris, he’s learned a thing or two along the way. For one thing, he’s learned the importance of not letting morons run a country, having watched the Inca Empire suffer many civil wars requiring the eventual ruler to gain support from the priests and the national military. He now works during fleeting sober moments to build a vibrant progressive movement sufficiently strong and sustainable to drive a pointed stake through the heart of American “conservatism” forever. He enjoys a gay marriage, classic jazz and roots for the New York Mets.
