The Spinners - It's A Shame

While the flyover states deal with nasty weather (much of our video crew lives in the mid-west, so weather has been a major concern), the Beltway Bubble crowd are busy spinning and smearing, and that is most certainly a shame. Alan Greenspan will be on This Week to spin how even though he doesn't support the McCain tax cuts, the current crappy economy has nothing to do with his policies or endorsements of earlier tax cuts. And Rudy Giuliani will be on Meet the Press to smear the Obama campaign on behalf of McCain, and let's be honest, to talk about how everything changed on 9/11. And FEMA's David Paulison will be on Late Edition to tell us how much they've learned since Katrina. Shame on all of them.

"Fox News Sunday" - Former Gov. Tony Knowles, D-Alaska; Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell, R-Alaska; Jim Laychak, president of the Pentagon Memorial Fund.

"The Chris Matthews Show" - Panel: Mark Whitaker, Katty Kay, Patrick Healy, Cynthia Tucker. Topics: Obama's on defense -- are Democrats worrying too soon about his chances?
