Cruzapalooza rolls on: The man behind the 21-hour floor speech gets the spotlight on “Meet the Press” this morning to talk ObamaCare, filibusters, and whether he’s now quietly running the House of Representatives. Mike Lee, meanwhile, will appear on “Fox News Sunday,” with both of them sure to be pressed on what happens if Boehner turns around and passes a clean CR with Democratic help. One word, my friends: RINOgeddon.
Actually, the most newsworthy interview today might be FNS’s chat with Kevin McCarthy. He’s the House whip so he’ll know better than anyone else this a.m. how Republicans plan to respond to Reid’s Senate bill. Meanwhile, MTP will have Jon Huntsman on to counter Cruz, I guess because no Cruz guest shot this weekend can stand without a formal centrist Republican rebuke of tea-party obstructionism and, let’s face it, we’re all pretty tired of Peter King.
