Avast ye, mateys! I'd be wishin' ya a happy Easter this Sunday. My appearance this fine morn is but an illusion. As you read this, I will be packing up my very sleepy children, the dog and a car full of crinoline to make the eight hour drive to Los Angeles for my brother's wedding next weekend. I give this itinerary in the event that Jesse Watters is staking me out for some ambush, since his m.o. appears to be coming up to women on vacation. It's a long drive between San Francisco and Los Angeles, Jesse. Hope you have some decent books on tape.

But aaarrr! I have a feeling I'm going to miss a lot of pirate talk this morning. In fact, Newt Gingrich promised on his Twitter feed he was going to get in some slams against Obama during his appearance on This Week concerning his slow reaction to pirates (as opposed to George W. Bush, who ignored 111 Somali pirate attacks in 2008 alone?). Yet another mess left to Obama from the last group. Meanwhile, the real pirates in America--those on Wall Street--avoid the plank this week as the shows focus on gay marriage with Rick Warren on This Week, Iraq with

Gen. Odierno and Iraqi National Security Advisor al-Rubaie on State of the Union and themselves on Meet the Press. Shiver me timbers!
