Rise & Shine, it’s Chuck Todd Day!

Chuck Todd’s new and improved Meet the Press (Now with more Edge!) starts this weekend. By now you’ve heard the fab news (RIP MTP) that Luke Russert is coming on as a regular at Chuck Todd’s new and improved roundtable (not sure what the Russert family has on NBC, but it’s gotta be big and dirty).

Good morning everyone, the coffee will be ready shortly.

The major topic today is ISIS and Syria, what will the US do. CBS booked both Sen. John McCain and Rep. Peter King (I guess they’re for bomb, bomb, bombing). The big question is, of course, what color suit Rep. King will wear.

Good morning.

Movie Night Monday is all about the beer.

The Sunday talk fests focus on Iraq and ISIS as well as immigration reform or lack thereof. Except for coverage on Religion & Ethics there doesn’t appear to be any quests scheduled to discuss the Supreme Court cases decided this week, like Burwell v. Hobby Lobby or even the union decision of Harris v. Quinn.

C-SPAN’s Washington Journal trots out one more climate denier, more wasted air time spent “debating” that which there is no debate about.

After what will surely be an unremarkable discussion of war fighting with Senators Graham and McCain, Bob Schieffer is hosting an interesting roundtable of authors, if you’re looking for summer reads.
