Sunday, August 31th, 2008
Guests to be interviewed today on major television talk shows:
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): John McCain; Mike Miller, director of operations for the Republican National Convention.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): Gov. Tim Pawlenty, R-Minn., and Doris Kearns Goodwin, presidential historian.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, R-N.Y.; Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn.; Carly Fiorina, adviser to the McCain campaign.
THIS WEEK (ABC): Cindy McCain, wife of Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain; Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and John Kerry, D-Mass.

John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Eric Cantor, R-Va.; Nancy Pfotenhauer, adviser to McCain; Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn.; R. David Paulison, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
IIRC correctly, on the way with McCain to Mississippi to see Gov Barbour.
Note to the GOP, on the subject of the convention: Get your vote over with then turn the convention into a telethon. Raise money for the victims. Sounds like they're gonna need it.
Prayers for all in harm's way.
Once again, Freepers correct Democrat lies and misinformation. This one concerns Joseph Biden’s so-called blue collar roots. Also, by implication, might explain where some of the Biden money came from.
This one is really making the rounds!
I heard that FNC has it already and you can be sure our guys,Rush, Sean, Mark the rest wil all have it as well.
Nothing like rats caught just being themselves.
Nobody is mentioning the change from D to R in louisiana.
This is the contrast.
Events like this are why we want a Palin over an Obama.
Who does america want in a crisis? Obama giving one of his famous speeches? don’t think so.
A 4-day, everybody in the same building convention is the buggy-whip of American politics. Of all the things the parties should be serpenting money on, where does a convention fall?
And why schedule major events like once-every-four-years conventions during a season where you could have a hurricane make land? That's just a bad idea to begin with; kind of like building a city below sea-level and then getting surprised when it gets wet.
A pared-back, lightly attended, semi-ignored, GOP convention prevents the DBM from tying McCain to the "reviled" Bush administration as tightly as they'd like to.
Morning, I’m glad you won’t be impacted by Gustav, prayers to everyone there for Hanna.
Governor Sarah Palin has energized the base as no other candidate could have done. Her selection is the second great decision John McCain has made, and I didn’t think he had it in him.
For everyone, I believe today is the last day we can donate to this campaign because of campaign limitations. Future donations will have to go to other sources.
Probably not a bad idea for all of us to include Phsstpok in our prayers. I know he’s in mine.
Doris Kearns Goodwin, when is this clown going to shut up? She
goes on and on about LBJ, FDR in a seemingly never ending drone.
“Nothing like rats caught just being themselves.”
My commercial using this tape would show the tape and then ask one simple question: “If Democrat’s Leaders are so eager to use hardship and death in this country for political purposes, did they ALSO SECRETLY CHEER when bombs were going off everyday in Iraq before the successful surge because it was helping their quest for power?”......or something similar..just woke up.
seven million dollars so far since announcing Palin.
FOLKS don’t forget, Gustav has blown away literally all the attack on Palin plans.
ONE MILLION PEOPLE are out of louisiana for the Palin attacks.
We also have to think EVACUEE VOTER FRAUD. A direct hit means many people will not be home by November.
What gets me is how the driveby media is so eager to take up these talking points without even thinking about them. I'm convinced (as I'm sure all of you reading here are, too) that the DNC and Obama campaign faxes and emails these talking points directly to the media, who hurriedly read them over their cornflakes or have them read to them as their makeup tech works on them, and then immediately report the talking points breathlessly, as if their “journalists” and “field investigators” thought them up on their own.
I believe Rush had a delightful montage of the media the day after Cheney was picked as George W's running mate back in 2000--with the word "gravitas" used by each and every one of ALL the talking heads in the television media. I mean this was all in the span of about 4 hours. To say that talking points aren't faxed/emailed from the DNC directly to the driveby's is an insult to anyone's intelligence.
Still, it is my opinion that the modern "journalist" isn't very intelligent (if so, they would have picked a more lucrative profession--top driveby media stars are the exception, not the rule); and lazy. They are also extremely vain so calling them on their bias, especially with proof as Rush did back in 2000, actually devastates them. Their mindview of themselves is that they are pure reformers with hearts of gold that battle the forces of evil on a daily basis. When shown the true light of their vain, stupid, biased, dem-talking-point-speaking selves, they recoil, stunned, back into their hellholes. In other words, they have to back off.
WE, as the new media can never give up nor back down ever. We MUST keep exposing them for what they are: arrogant ignoramuses who are simply tools for the Left.
Katrina already handled that.
I haven’t seen this many R’s in the Sunday morning list since, well, forever.
I didn’t realize the newsies knew there were that many R’s on the planet.
Can we have a transcript of this posted here?
What a bunch of monsters!
The dems are not thinking, every second of Gustav reporting means the Obama attack machine is off the air.
Dems are not thinking.
She has not been invited to be on any of these shows. Along with most of the other 49 governors in this country (56 in Barack Obama's country). You'll have to decide for yourself if this absence of diversity in the talk show guest list is a comment on the other governors, of the shows.
This one does not show the flags at his feet but it’s there:
