Sunday Morning Bobblehead Thread
October 9, 2016

The war between the Republican establishment and the Trump Campaign just went from cold to bloody. Rumor has it that Reince Priebus is being replaced on Face The Nation by Rudy Guiliani at Trump's insistence.

So on Face The Nation (CBS), it will either be Priebus or Giuliani, and two panels: one being Bob Schieffer, Norah O'Donnell, Major Garrett and Nancy Cordes. Another panel will be Peggy Noonan, Jamelle Bouie, Susan Page, and John Heilemann.

Meet the Press (NBC) will host Seth Meyers of Late Night. Then they'll interview Kellyanne Conway and Nancy Pelosi, though we won't get our wish and have them on at the same time, cage-match style. Panelists are Sara Fagen, Ruth Marcus, Heather McGhee, and Steve Schmidt.

But ABC's This Week wins The Driftglass Prize for Potential Sunday Show Train Wreck. Priebus (or Rudy), and DNC chair Donna Brazile, The panel, (Jesus take the wheel) is Paul Krugman, Grover Norquist, Alex Castellanos, Stephanie Cutter, Matthew Dowd, Keith Ellison, and for color commentary, Mary Matalin.

Fox News Sunday is supposed to have Conway, Bill O'Reilly and John Podesta. and the panel will be Juan Williams, Karl Rove, Maureen Dowd and Jason Riley. I won't be surprised if the entire show is pre-empted by either hurricane coverage or a special airing of "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi." They really don't wanna be on the air when Mommy and Daddy are fighting.

CNN State of the Union: Sen. Tim Kaine. And oh look, Gov. Chris Christie is scheduled to show up too. That'll be fun. Also David Axelrod, and we'll get to see which scarf Mister "No Labels" Mark McKinnon is wearing today. Never forget he's a former senior adviser to Bush and McCain, but hey "no labels." On the panel Van Jones, Kirsten Powers, Andre Bauer and John Amato's favorite lying punching bag, Sean Spicer.

Inside Politics (CNN) panelists are Dan Balz, Maeve Reston, Glenn Thrush and Nia-Malika Henderson.

Appearing on CNN's Reliable Sources: Kayleigh McEnany (made you laugh) and members of the Commission on Presidential Debates.
