Sunday Talking Head Thread

Here is the Sunday Talking Head line-up. Read and…well, just read it.  (Partially from the AP via SFChron.)

C-Span's Washington Journal — 7:45am – Jeanne Cummings, The Politico, Lobbying & Money Correspondent; 8:30am – Newspaper Articles & Viewer Calls; 9am – John Ukec, Sudanese Ambassador to the U.S.; 9:30am – Phoner with Calls: Phil Gunson, Financial Times, Reporter

ABC's "This Week" — Iraqi President Jalal Talabani; Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa.; NASCAR driver Kyle Petty.

CBS'"Face the Nation" — Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colo.; Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y.

NBC's "Meet the Press" — Democratic strategists Bob Shrum and James Carville; Republican strategists Mary Matalin and Mike Murphy.

CNN's "Late Edition" — Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Richard Shelby, R-Ala.; Elizabeth Edwards, wife of presidential candidate John Edwards; Tagg Romney, son of presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

"Fox News Sunday" — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich; U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker.

I can tell you what I will not be watching — Meet the Press.  I can't think of a show less worth viewing with that line-up.  Lordy.  They should start calling it "Meet My Cronies."  If Mary Matalin opens her mouth and says "no underlying crime" or "he's a good, good man" like she always does and there is no pushback from her husband (ha!) or Bob Shrum (HA!) about the fact that a multiple felony conviction on a matter of national security is not only serious but ought to be punished to the fullest extent of the law for an officer of the court who ought to have known better…I'd say Russert ought to call her on it, but he's owned by Dick Cheney. 

So, what is catching your eye this morning on the blogs or in the news?  If you missed Bob Geiger's political cartoon round-up, do go take a peek.  Great stuff this week.

I had trouble with the image resizer that I've been using and so had to use an old photo.  Apologies, because I had a great one that Julie sent me.  Will use it next week for sure. 

PS — Just a quick reminder that I will be on Sam Seder's Show this afternoon at 5 pm ET/2 pm PT, with Glenn Greenwald and Dr. Ron Daniels.
