And this morning we'll be listening to the soft, endearing, sentimental sounds of....
Reince Priebus on several shows. Because of course we will. (Yuuuge hat tip to Hal Boedeker of the Orlando Sentinel for publishing this list weekly.)
If you draw the short straw on the staff, you'll be watching Face the Nation: Paul Manafort, Trump campaign and convention manager, Newt Gingrich, Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams, and former Gov. Haley Barbour, R-Miss. The panel will feature (and I am not making this up) the author of "The Intimidation Game: How The Left Is Silencing Free Speech". Her name is Kimberley Strassel, and she's a Fox News contributor and Wall Street Journal staffer Yay! Also Ben Domenech of The Federalist; and Matt Schlapp of the American Conservative Union. The political panel will be Bob Schieffer, Ed O'Keefe of Wapo and Peggy Noonan. Yes, THAT Peggy Noonan.
Runner up for awful, primarily because Bill Kristol, ABC's "This Week": Kerry and Priebus The panel will be Democratic strategist Donna Brazile, ABC's Matthew Dowd, Bill Kristol and Alex Castellanos,
Meet the Press: Secretary of State John Kerry and Reince Priebus, On the panel: Tom Brokaw, Hugh Hewitt, Joy Ann Reid and Sara Fagen, former White House political director for President George W. Bush.
Fox News Sunday: CIA Director John Brennan, Paul Manafort, and Priebus. Don't ask me about the panel, just don't, but be aware that there's this other show on Fox called "Sunday Morning Futures" that will have Tom Cotton, Steve Scalise, and Peter King all from the Republican Senate. Yay!
CNN's "State of the Union": Kerry and Priebus. The panel will be Corey Lewandowski, (yeah) Ana Navarro, Bakari Sellers and Nina Turner.
CNN's "Reliable Sources": Bob Schieffer of CBS and Jeff Greenfield, David Folkenflik of NPR, Matt Lewis of The Daily Caller, Scottie Nell Hughes of RightAlerts.com (they're kidding she's a former Trump employee), "Democracy Now!" host Amy Goodman and Jamil Smith of MTV.
But this is what keeps me going on mornings like this one:
