Sunday Talking Head Thread

Well, this certainly looks like an interesting morning line-up, doesn't it? (via the WaPo.) Well, moderately interesting in part, anyway.
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (WTTG), 9 a.m.: Sens. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) and George Allen (R-Va.), the Rev. Joseph Lowery , former Bush aide Ron Christie and National Air and Space Museum geologist John Grant .

THIS WEEK (ABC, WJLA), 9 a.m.: Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice , Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.), Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Lynn Swann (R) and actress Sigourney Weaver .

FACE THE NATION (CBS, WUSA), 10:30 a.m.: Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean and Rice . (RH notes: Doesn't THAT look like a fun time in the Green Room? Mwahaha.)

MEET THE PRESS (NBC, WRC), 10:30 a.m.: Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), Reps. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) and Peter Hoekstra (R-Mich.) and former Senate majority leader Thomas A. Daschle (D-S.D.). (RH notes: Wonder if Timmeh will talk to Daschle about the President's request for extended domestic surveillance being expressly turned down by Congress? Get set for Wurlitzer push-back later in the day, if so -- I bet fax machines have already been going on the coordinated response. Keep an eye on Drudge to see if the response gets posted before Daschle has even made it on the show...)

LATE EDITION (CNN), 11 a.m.: Sens. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) and Joseph I. Lieberman (D-Conn.), Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen , Egyptian Ambassador Nabil Fahmy , Israeli Ambassador Danny Ayalon , Palestinian representative Afif Safieh and former Iraqi interim prime minister Ayad Allawi
With Rev. Lowery on Fox News Sunday, I'm expecting the Juan Williams apologist ambush. And with both Lieberman and Biden on the menu on two other shows, I may need an extra pot of coffee. No idea if I'll get to watch any of these, given the latest obsession with Monsters, Inc. in our house, but it's the Talking Head Thread line-up nonetheless for everyone else's convenience. Post your thoughts and any fireworks from the shows in this thread. Or whatever strikes your fancy.

Weather here is lots of snow -- our dachshund is quite miffed, and sure that the weather gods have conspired to make her trip outside as miserable as possible. But the birds and squirrels are stuffing themselves silly on our bird feeder, much to Fiona's delight, and I'm just waiting for more Olympics.

(Found this photo a coupla weeks ago to use as a desktop pix. Can't remember where I got it, or I would credit it. This is how things look outside at my house this morning...well, minus the lovely old covered bridge, you have to drive about 10 minutes from here to find one of those.)
