Of Monsters and Men - Little Talks
Some days I feel like I'm wrong when I am right.
Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear.
'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore
Hey! Don't listen to a word I say
Hey! The screams all sound the same.
Here's hoping that we can bring the ship safely to shore. Looking at this lineup, I have my doubts. There are so many lies for an average viewer to have to go through. And we'll get no help from the hosts (although we are blessed with the absence of David Gregory, thanks to the Tour de France). Perennial guest John McCain is back, as is the exorcist himself, Bobby Jindal. And no Sunday is truly complete without the little talks with Mitch "Mr Botox" McConnell. For my money, it's only worth tuning in to "Up with Chris Hayes," who will be dealing with global warming and off-shoring taxes among other hot topics.
