Oh goodie. The head of the Republican party, Rush Limbaugh is going to crawl out of his cave and join Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday this weekend. I can hardly wait. I don't know how I'd make it through the weekend without finding out what El Rushbo, Hugh Hewitt and Newt Gingrich have to say about the sorry state of the Republican presidential race.

Never mind all that infighting, or that it looks quite likely that the GOP presidential candidate is going to be one of two people that the establishment absolutely hates. I'm quite sure, reality be damned, they'll all be telling us what a great day it is to be a Republican.

Here's the lineup for this Sunday from the Orlando Sentinel, and once again, the guest lists are dominated by Republicans and right wing talking heads (check your local listings for times and stations in your area).

Presidential candidates Clinton, Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, are guests on CBS' "Face the Nation" at 10:30 a.m. on WKMG-Channel 6. Another guest is RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. The panel will be Molly Ball of The Atlantic, Ezra Klein of Vox and Michael Gerson and Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post.

Limbaugh discusses the 2016 presidential election, front-runner Donald Trump and the most recent GOP debate on "Fox News Sunday" at 10 a.m. on WOFL-Channel 35. Former GOP presidential candidate Romney is another guest. The panel will be George Will, Julie Pace of The Associated Press, Republican strategist Mike DuHaime and Charles Lane of The Washington Post.
