Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on May 11, 2014 by Allahpundit

It’s a snoozefest around the dial this Mother’s Day except on “Fox News Sunday,” which has both Trey Gowdy and Democrat Xavier Becerra booked to talk Benghazi. Becerra’s been encouraging House Democrats to drop the boycott idea and participate; it’ll be fun watching him try to make that argument while also toeing the party line that the committee’s an abomination that practically qualifies as an act of terrorism itself. Expect an exchange about the propriety of the parties fundraising off the committee’s activities too.

If you’re not up for that, NBC will be airing English soccer in lieu of “Meet the Press,” which probably isn’t good for David Gregory’s, er, “condition.” The full line-up is at Politico.

Appropriate opening only on Sunday.

Well, David Gregory is as boring as English soccer…

Happy Mother’s Day from the DNC Media!

That’s right boys and girls; it’s time for the Sunday Morning DNC Media Propaganda Hour, when the Democrat Liberal Socialists who occupy virtually every seat and office in major media conduct a ludicrous exercise in liberal propaganda aimed at you backwater rednecks in the hope that you might stupidly buy some of this tripe. They don’t know you very well.

Let’s have a gander:

“Meet the Press” on NBC
• Pre-empted by coverage of English Premier League soccer

I cannot think of a more perfect expression of the worthlessness of NBC News.

“Face the Nation” on CBS
• Mike Rogers – Sometimes conservative and lame duck
• Elizabeth Warren – Norwegian-Indian Princess and Socialist Nitwit
• Robert Gates – Beltway pensioner in search of a life

Is this what parity looks like? Kook left and GOP establishment, presented by kook left? Whatever.

“This Week” on ABC
• Chuck Hagel – Detestable administration tool and former Republican
• Marco Rubio – Sigh … how to explain?

“Fox News Sunday” on Fox
• Trey Gowdy – Conservative!
• Xavier Becerra – Kook left liberal
• John Campbell – Bushite State Department type
• Shiza Shahid – NA

“State of the Union” on CNN
• Debbie Wasserman – Schultz Kook left
• Michele Bachmann – Conservative

“Political Capital” on Bloomberg TV
• Jack Lew – Kook Left

“Newsmakers” on C-SPAN
• Hal Rogers – Leans RINO

“Al Punto” on Univision
• Rubio – Conservative
• Bob Menendez – Kook left

Take a snapshot of this one, folks, because this is about as good as it gets in terms of parity. You would rather that it was Jim Jordan than Rubio, but you take what you can get, which in this case is Gowdy, Bachman, Rubio and a couple of RINO leaners.

Or better yet, take Mom out to breakfast after church.

Jaibones on May 11, 2014 at 8:13 AM

I’ll pass that on to Mrs. Hawkdriver (NHRN) and a blessed Mother’s Day to you also.

Jaibones on May 11, 2014 at 8:15 AM

I’m guessing the major theme will be damage control on the Benghazi hearings.

GOP fundraiser …
Disrespects the dead Americans …

And I can translate. Potentially harmful to Hildabeast so we must cover and obfuscate.

hawkdriver on May 11, 2014 at 8:16 AM

I gotta admit I’m cautiously optimistic about Trey Gowdy. There’s definitely a very slim chance he can keep the hearings from being a complete media catastrophe which tanks our chances of taking the Senate.

The Dems are considering having someone on the committee so they’ll know what’s going on. They are assuming the Repubs are like them and do everything secretly. If they want to know what’s going on all they have to do is watch tv.

When I step back and remember those days, I am filled with wonder. A woman, married to a ridiculous pig who cheats on her and assaults women in the highest political offices in our country, acts as his hatchet and attacks the character of the women who come forward to tell the public about their molester. And is celebrated as some sort of feminist icon by … women.

You couldn’t make up a story as gross as Hillary.

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms. I’m remembering mine, today. (She passed on in 1998 at age 84 after a pretty interesting life.)

My classic epithet for Hillary!! comes from Harlan Ellison’s short story, “All The Lies That Are My Life”. It’s what the (deceased) protagonist whose will is being read (by him, on video no less) always called his b!tchy sister.

And no, it wouldn’t get past the filters here.

I have some friends & family who live in upstate SC, which is Gowdy’s district. They say he’s as straight up as they come. He isn’t a game player, the way a lot of our politicians are these days. And if he says he’s going for the truth, then that’s what he will be striving for.

lineholder on May 11, 2014 at 9:15 AM

“Democrat Xavier Becerra booked to talk Benghazi. Becerra’s been encouraging House Democrats to drop the boycott idea and participate; it’ll be fun watching him try to make that argument while also toeing the party line”

If you ever get a chance, watch this guy. He’s very TV friendly and he has his presentation well rehearsed but this guy has got to be one of the stupidest people ever elected to congress. When he gets off point some of the dumbest stuff ever uttered by humans comes out of his piehole. I’m not talking run of the mill idiocy like the most liberal politician spout, I mean this guy is basically a functional retard.

lowandslow on May 11, 2014 at 9:20 AM

These Dems not wanting to join the Bengazi committee remind me of the Wisconsin state senate Dems who all ran to Illinois so Walker couldn’t have the vote for limiting the collective bargaining rights of the teachers’ union. They looked ridiculous.
And as I have heard it said, if you flee from a debate, you probably have the weaker argument.
Gowdy knows there is much to be found in the deliberately hidden Bengazi documents in the WH and more to be gained from the depositions of Hillary and the gang.

He said on Meagan’s show last week he’s more interesting in depositions than hearings in order to limit (Democrat) speeches and chest pounding. I didn’t wonder at the time if they’d be public, but it sounded encouraging.

I guess that w/o TV cameras there’d be no reason for (Democrat) speeches and chest pounding.

His hair isn’t fair game? As far as I can tell either two things are going on. Either he’s so disconnected from his personal appearance that he allows some aid or his wife to style it every other week into some messed up interpretation of some metrosexual model from the latest gay fashion magazine or he cares to much about it himself that he’s reaching John Edwards level of obsession over it. Either way, it looks ridiculous and makes him look ridiculous. Don’t pretend people don’t notice it and make judgements about him over it.

John Campbell – Bushite State Department type

.
Apparently, his real job is to cover for HiLarry Clintoon in not recognizing Boko Harum Skarum as a vicious Islamic terror group intent on changing culture by violent means. He used more minutiae to describe that failure of the Clintoon Skate Department terrorist designation than I was ever aware was necessary to evaluate terrorist groups.
.
Really, Amb. Campbell, one of the criteria is that the organization is diffuse, like AQ? Really? Well, let’s just give up now. It’s been three weeks… these girls are all either pregnant by their Muslim captors, sold to other Muslims, or dead of snake bite. So just let the terrorists win while we lay down on a bed of tired resignation and ineptitude.

D-fusit on May 11, 2014 at 9:54 AM

I have a theory about Trey Gowdy’s assorted hair styles. I think that they are a deliberate effort to shape his opponents’ assumptions that he is a Gomer hayseed, not to be taken seriously. These assumptions are the same foolish beliefs that anyone speaking with a Southern accent is not well educated or is downright stupid.

Gowdy is playing his opponents on the Left, politicians and media alike, like a masterful litigator.

That is why her running in 2016 is so dangerous. I think Hillary
has become a caricature of herself, however, women will think it is “their turn”. Next, it will be the “Hispanics” turn. Then it
will be the “homosexual” turn and on and on. By that time the
country will be fully destroyed because the sheeple don’t use

Thanks Jetboy for starting out this day with a funny video. So sorry for your loss. Lost my ma eight years ago to Parkinson’s disease. She never had to scold me…. not because I was “good”, but she had a look/stare that could melt anyone to the ground. It worked with all five of us kids.

As for Gowdy, loved him since his first appearance on FOX. I pray that the committee doesn’t screw up and some kind of consequence for this admin’s actions follows.

…later on that day we were visiting my best friend who had sole custody of his girls aged 5 and 7…and my son again said “Happy Mothers Day!” (he repeated it several times…like in his face…very seriously!…and my friend just looked at me uncomfortably… as my son was expecting a serious sounding “Thank You!)…I asked him why he was wishing Uncle Tony a Happy Mothers Day………..and got the lecture!…”Uncle Tony was a good mother too!…he fixes the girls food…washes their clothes…fixes their beds…dresses them…plays dolls with them…takes them to school…plays ball with them”….(a long litany of ‘stuff’ moms do!)…after about five minutes of ‘things Uncle Tony does’…he again ended it with “Uncle Tony is a GOOD MOM TOO!”…<—–that's my preface for saying…

At first I was confused. This is a different John Campbell from my Congressman, who is a good, solid Repub. Too bad he’s retiring after this year.

But don’t get me wrong…not saying this John Campbell is anything other than a good guy, but this review is all about ideology and I have no clue what his would be. Career diplomat, I can guess but that might not be fair.

May the good Lord look out for and bless Trey Gowdy and his committee members.

May God bless them with wisdom as well as principle.

Thanks guys and Happy Mother’s Day. Have a great day…so beautiful in Chicago today. Church was awesome and our pastor, Ron, was on fire. So proud and blessed to be there with my loving wife.

The Democrat’s “Whatever you do, don’t look in the trunk” strategy. Killary is toast.

Gowdy supports amnesty so, I don’t expect much from him.

Hopefully Gowdy will give then the Joe Friday treatment. Just the facts, Ma’am. Nail them into their own box. People died. An ambassador was dragged through the streets. The embodiment of the United States in Libya, asphyxiated and his body defiled. And we didn’t do something massive? Rip this open, and nail down witnesses. Gowdy is methodical, and relentless in his previous role as a prosecutor. God help him use his skills.

Why can’t we have pro football year ’round…?

Marco Rubio – Sigh … how to explain?

Pretty much, Immigration squish/RINO.
Rock ribbed conservative on just about everything else.

Everybody has a little RINO in them somewhere, even Cruz, he’s just not revealed it yet.

Details?

Then, your plan for immigration.

This is when you can say “What difference does it make?”
It was an arson firebombing. He died from smoke inhalation/carbon monoxide poisoning.(Many people who die in fires are already dead from this before the flames even touch them or the building collapses on them.)
Manner of death: Homicide (Murder or Assassination in this case.)

P.S. Her parting shot was Hillary’s innocent, put David Petraeus on trial instead.

Jaibones, I hope I’m not posting this too late for you to see this. My confusion wasn’t about your description. I just had no idea there was a different John Campbell. As a matter of fact, it was your description that tipped me off to check it out. You do such a great job! Many thanks!

Copy that, ncinca.

when you go MIA (take a week or two or three off=vacation/emergency)…you tell us!

Golf trip this weekend — I will be MIA and maybe DOA.
