Some of the slimmest pickings in recent memory on the Sunday shows this morning. If you’re up for Kennedy hagiography, Teddy’s widow will be on “This Week,” “Meet the Press,” and “Fox News Sunday” to discuss the opening of the new Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate and to mouth some platitudes about the tragedy of gridlock. If you’re not up for that, John Boehner will be on “State of the Union” chatting about … God knows what. Probably doc fix. And/or the tragedy of gridlock.
Your best bet is Ted Cruz, who’ll also be on “State of the Union” to take questions about his new presidential campaign. Will he be pressed on his support for legalizing illegals, or will CNN instead spend the entire segment asking him in eight or nine different ways whether he’s unelectable? (The latter, of course.) Cruz isn’t the only 2016 hopeful booked this morning: Mike Huckabee will be on “Face the Nation,” Carly Fiorina will be on “Fox News Sunday,” and (heh) Martin O’Malley will be on “This Week” to reveal his plan to chip away at Hillary’s 75-point lead and shock the world in Iowa. The full line-up is at the AP.
