War in Ukraine, war in Iraq, a looming executive power grab on immigration, and a 2016 GOP contender indicted for nakedly political reasons: There’s a lot on the ol’ news plate this Sunday morning but the main course, of course, is Ferguson. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is the lead guest on “Meet the Press” and “State of the Union,” and I’m going to go ahead and guess that he booked those appearances on Friday. He probably thought today was going to be a belated victory lap after he ordered the Highway Patrol to take the lead in crowd control on Thursday and the protests remained peaceful that night. Oops: Friday night brought more looting. Now he’s back on the hot seat.
If you’re not up for watching op-ed pagers sitting around the round table and navel-gazing about race in America, Rick Perry will be on “Fox News Sunday” to answer for his crime of thinking that someone who did time on a DUI charge probably shouldn’t be serving as DA. How’s the other side of that argument working out for Democrats thus far? Not so well. The full line-up is at Politico.
