It's going to be all Democratic primary, all the time on the Sunday shows, and frankly, I'm tired of it. So I thought I'd liven up the morning with a little humor from Down Under (or is it humour from Down Under?) with The Chasers War on Everything. Since national security and evangelicals have been in the news lately, these two seem particularly noteworthy:
For those of you who can't get enough breathless media prognostication on the imminent collapse of the Democratic Party, Howard Dean will be on This Week and will no doubt be asked about the delegate situation for Florida and Michigan. Russian opposition leader and chess Grand Master Garry Kasparov will be on Late Edition and I have to believe that he'll avoid placing himself into the Obama/Clinton piefight as well.
ABC's "This Week" - Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean; Gov. Charlie Crist, R-Fla.; Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich.

"The Chris Matthews Show" -Panel: Ron Allen, Andrea Mitchell, Patrick Healy, Gloria Borger. Topics: Will superdelegates decide the Democratic nominee? Will we see a Obama-Clinton, or Clinton-Obama, ticket?
And if those bobbleheads aren't your cup of tea, do be aware that McCain of some other non-morning programming that may be of interest:
60 Minutes: John McCain Now that he has become the presumptive Republican presidential candidate, John McCain talks to Scott Pelley about his plans to win the White House. 26-Year-Secret Bob Simon reports on two lawyers who, bound by the client-attorney privilege, kept the secret that their client had committed a murder while an innocent man went to jail for the crime and remains there after 26 years. The Icahn Lift Carl Icahn's reputation for pumping up the value of companies has led to a phrase that describes that Midas touch: the "Icahn lift." Lesley Stahl profiles the billionaire investor.
CSpan Sunday Schedule Note CSpan 1 will offer Warrantless Domestic Surveillance. And at 9:00 am eastern there's Unveiling the Whole Truth: What the Media Failed to Tell American Voters on BookTV, which looks right up our alley.
