"No More Kings" from Schoolhouse Rock

It's stunning to me that 30 years later, I can still recite the Preamble and describe the process in which a bill becomes a law thanks to Schoolhouse Rock. All those songs are lodged deep in the recesses of my brain. And it occurred to me this week that there are many in positions of power in this country who need some refresher courses in history, government and all the rights we fought hard to have here. But given the anti-intellectualism of the new McCarthyites like Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin and John McCain, perhaps it would be best to ease them into it with some Schoolhouse Rock.

The big story this week is whether Colin Powell, appearing on Meet the Press, will endorse Barack Obama. And if he does, will the McCain campaign dismiss him as being too...partisan?

ABC's "This Week" - Newt Gingrich, former GOP speaker of the House.

CBS' "Face the Nation" - Virginia Democratic Gov. Tim Kaine; Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.; Missouri Republican Gov. Matt Blunt; former Rep. Rob Portman, R-Ohio.

NBC's "Meet the Press" - Former Secretary of State Colin Powell.

CNN's "Late Edition" - Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.; Rep. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., House minority whip; former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani; Rep. Artur Davis, D-Ala.; Ed Lazear, chairman, White House Council on Economic Advisers.

"Fox News Sunday" - Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

"The Chris Matthews Show" - Panel: Mark Whitaker, Katty Kay, Kathleen Parker, Andrew Sullivan. Topics: Can McCain rescue his campaign as the economy sinks? Who benefits as McCain and Obama question each other's character?

So what's catching your eye this morning?
