The House Republicans are in a meltdown and their presidential candidates are spouting nonsense on a daily basis that ought to have them shunned from the political arena for a generation, but don't count on any of these pundits on the Sunday shows to give us an honest assessment of what's going on without a heaping helping of both siderism thrown in for "balance."

Never mind the fact that we've got one party that's fallen off of the cliff, they've gone so far right. How can those crazy lefties want to vote for that dirty hippie Socialist Bernie Sanders?

Speaking of Sanders, we'll see Bernie on Meet the Press this weekend, but other than that, it looks like it's another weekend of meet the Republicans, accompanied by a small spattering of their milquetoast, talking points enabling, left-leaning Villagers.
