Sunday Talking Heads: September 28, 2014

It’s Morningtime! The pancakes will be up in a jiff.

All ISIS on the shows today, nary a mention of The Peoples Climate Mega-March or any kind of UN convocation that may or may not have taken place this week concerning the future of the planet. But tomorrow’s another day, right Scarlet?

Chuck Todd is winning the Village market and gets the weekend off. And Steve Kroft interviews President Barack Obama for tonight’s 60 Minutes.

FDL’S BOOK SALON: The Case Against the Supreme Court. “Most Americans share the perception that the Supreme Court is objective, but Erwin Chemerinsky, one of the country’s leading constitutional lawyers, shows that this is nonsense and always has been. The Court is made up of fallible individuals who base decisions on their own biases. Today, the Roberts Court is promoting a conservative agenda under the guise of following a neutral methodology, but notorious decisions, such as Bush vs. Gore and United Citizens, are hardly recent exceptions. This devastating book details, case by case, how the Court has largely failed throughout American history at its most important tasks and at the most important times.”
Chat with Erwin Chemerinsky about his new book. Hosted by bmaz and Dahlia Lithwick.

FDL’S MOVIE NIGHT MONDAY: No film this week.
