Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

It’s wall-to-wall NSA coverage this morning in honor of Obama’s pretend-reform speech on Friday, featuring the same stable of Sunday-show mainstays that are always booked for this topic — Dianne Feinstein, Mike Rogers, Michael Hayden, and a few former Obama staffers like Tom Donilon and Mike Morell. As far as I know, with the sole exception of Mark Udall on “Face the Nation,” not a single guest appearing this a.m. wants a major overhaul of the agency.
The one significant deviation from the script is “This Week,” which will have Stephanopoulos interviewing Vladimir Putin about Olympic security, Snowden, Obama’s embarrassing amateurishness on Syria, and the many political benefits at home and abroad of demagoging gays. The full line-up is at Politico.
