Level 42-- To Be With You Again
Happy Father's Day to all the daddies out there! While I wait for my beloved to wake up to be spoiled by his children, let's look at what to expect this morning.
I imagine some version of this song plays somewhere in the head of the Sunday show bookers, because if it's Sunday...you guessed it, it's time for John McCain to gift us with his pearls of wisdom, this time on This Week with Christiane Amanpour. And guess who else will be on? None other than Liz Cheney. Oh, I've missed them so much! If those aren't enough familiar faces for you, you can always check Lindsey Graham on Meet the Press or Mitch McConnell on Face the Nation. Once again, the same people, giving the same talking points, week after week. For my money, the only thing worth tuning in for is Jon Stewart going toe to toe with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. Now that's a Sunday show guest I'd like to be with again.
