CBS’ Face The Nation: Charlie Black, strategist for Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign [CHS notes: That’s "Charlie Black, uber-lobbyist" to you. See video at left, in honor of Charlie’s use of his cell phone to make lobbying calls from the "Straight Talk Express." Wonder if all the many other lobbyist-turned-strategists and fundraising bundlers who work (some for "free" — but don’t you suspect they want payment somehow?!?) for Team McCain make lobbying calls from the campaign bus, too? The jokes just write themselves here, don’t they?]; Govs. Jennifer Granholm, D-Mich., and Janet Napolitano, D-Ariz.

Sixty Minutes: The Prosecution of Governor Siegelman: Don Siegelman was a successful Democratic politician in the heavily Republican state of Alabama when he was convicted of bribery in a case that has drawn criticism from Democrats and Republicans. Scott Pelley reports. The Murder of Chauncey Bailey: Shot-gunned to death in the course of reporting a story, police say newspaper editor Chauncey Bailey was probably killed to keep that story out of print. CNN’s Anderson Cooper reports. What’s Wrong With The Bees: Over the past year, some beekeepers have lost up to 90 percent of their hives to what scientists have named colony collapse disorder. Because honeybees help to produce a third of the foods we eat, the mysterious disorder could have severe consequences. Steve Kroft reports.
H/T to Elliott. And to the fine folks at Brave New Films for the "My McCain Friends" video. Priceless.
