Sunday Talking Head Thread

muteswan.jpgHere’s the Sunday Talking Head line-up for the day.  Read it and…well, just read it.  (Partially from AP via Forbes.)

C-Span’s Washington Journal:  7:45am – Robert Bluey,, Blogger & David Waldman DailyKos, Contributing Editor; 9am – Ahmed Yousef, Hamas Political Adviser to Palestinian Prime Minister Haniya; 9:30am – Larry Kaplow, Newsweek, Baghdad Correspondent ABC’s “This Week” – Sens. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., and Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.; actor David Hyde Pierce.

CBS “Face the Nation” – Former New York Mayor Ed Koch; political consultant Ed Rollins; actor Sam Waterston.

NBC’s “Meet the Press” – Former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan; Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill.

CNN’s “Late Edition” – Vietnamese President Nguyen Minh Triet; Sens. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, and Ron Wyden, D-Ore.; Dennis Ross, former U.S. Mideast envoy; Egyptian Ambassador Nabil Fahmy; Israeli Ambassador Sallai Meridor.

“Fox News Sunday” – Sens. Trent Lott, R-Miss., and Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; Cal Ripken Jr., former Baltimore Orioles shortstop.

This line-up says to me:  immigration, the Middle East, Wolf Blitzer scored an exclusive with the leader of VietNam and perhaps a bit of disgust with the DOJ and Vice President Cheney, all rolled into one morning package and spread out over several shows.  Oh, and Ed Koch and Ed Rollins will talk about how their political wisdom is better than anyone else’s. 

What’s catching your eye on the blogs or in the news this morning?

Today’s photo comes to us courtesy of reader jcricket, who took this lovely pix of a mute swan when it ambled into his front yard from a nearby lake and decided to take over the place for a while — as jcricket said to me, they aren’t exactly friendly beasts, are they?  Sure are lovely, though, so enjoy the picture.
