Happy Sunday morning everyone! Presidential politics are dominating the talking head shows once again this weekend, and for some unknown reason, President Obama has decided to appear on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace and give the "fair and balanced" GOP TV propaganda channel some fodder to attack him over as soon as the interview finishes airing.

Why is beyond me, but no one from his team of advisers is asking me for my input on what television appearances he should be making.

The rest of the shows are dominated by the usual suspects, which means, as always, that any actual liberals that are allowed on these shows are outnumbered by a margin of five or ten to one by their right wing or beltway both siderist counterparts.

Here's the lineup for this Sunday, courtesy of the Orlando Sentinel (check your local listings for times and stations in your area): Obama, Clinton, Sanders: Sunday guests:
