Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

Unsurprisingly, after a week that saw a federal judge slam the metadata program as “almost Orwellian” and Obama’s handpicked surveillance review panel call for major changes, most of the Sunday shows are all in on the NSA this morning. A member of the review panel, former acting CIA director Mike Morrell, is the star guest on “Face the Nation.” Expect some tough questions on whether he has any firm evidence that mass surveillance of this sort is actually foiling terror plots. (Spoiler alert: No.)
If you’re bored with Snowdenpalooza, there’s always Mike Huckabee on “Fox News Sunday.” Between the Phil Robertson suspension, the rulings on gay marriage in New Mexico and Utah, and the rumors about another presidential run, this may well be the most Huckabean news cycle ever. The ball’s all teed up; all he has to do is swing. The full line-up is at Politico.
