Sunday Talking Head Thread
Here’s the Sunday talking head line-up. Some interesting potential here and there: (partially via Projo.com)
C-Span’s Washington Journal: 7:45am – Don Frederick, Los Angeles Times, Political Editor & Blogger | Blog; 8:30am – Scott Brennan, Iowa Democratic Party, Chairman & Ray Hoffmann, Iowa Republican Party, Chairman; 9:30am – Newspaper Articles & Viewer Calls.
This Week (ABC): Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas, a Republican presidential candidate; Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich, a Democratic presidential candidate; and actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
FOX News Sunday: Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a Republican presidential candidate, and his wife, Ann.
Meet the Press (NBC): Former Rep. Harold Ford Jr., chairman, Democratic Leadership Council, and Markos Moulitsas, founder and editor, DailyKos.com.
Face the Nation (CBS): Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Republican presidential candidate.
Late Edition (CNN): Pakistani Ambassador to the United States Mahmud Ali Durrani; Transportation Secretary Mary Peter; Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif.; Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Pa.; Jim Talent, a Mitt Romney campaign adviser; Rep. David Dreier, R-Calif., a Rudy Guiliani campaign adviser; and Buddy Roemer, a John McCain campaign adviser.

What, you don’t remember that Cathie Martin classic?

“buy yourself some voters, promise them a buffet and stick ’em on a bus day” Iowa GOP straw poll.
Today’s photo is a lovely, bright orange Baltimore Oriole via the ever-excellent Julie’s Magic Light Show. I never seem to get any orioles on our feeders, despite having tried oranges and grape jelly — I just get lots of ants instead. Is there some trick that you all use to tempt these beauties? Do tell…
