Sunday Talk Shows

I fully expect this week's Sunday morning political shows to be a love in across the board. Tom Brokaw, Bob Schieffer, and George Stephanopoulos will be fawning all over their Democratic guests celebrating the big Obama Presidential victory. It'll be so nauseating to watch, the only part of the celebration missing will be John Lennon with a guitar leading the hosts and guests in singing an updated version of "Give Peace A Chance" called "Give Obama A Chance".

On Meet the Press, Obama-Biden Transition Team co-chair Valerie Jarrett will be the featured guest. One of the guests also scheduled to appear will be Presidential historian/alleged plagiarist Doris Kearns Goodwin. She may be the most B-O-R-I-N-G person in America. When she speaks, my eyelids get very heavy.

Speaking of bores, former Presidential adviser David Gergen will be a guest on This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Gergen is always full of himself when he makes television appearances and speaks every sentence with the gravity of if he's about to declare thermonuclear war. This Week looks to be the strongest of the shows, because George also scored a coup getting old Clinton Administration teammate Rahm Emanuel to appear. George Will will be the token conservative making an appearance on tomorrow's show.

Face The Nation with Bob Schieffer also has Emanuel appearing as a guest, as well as John Harris of and NY Times pseudo conservative David Brooks. Other than when Harris is on, I likely won't be watching much of Face The Nation.
