I hate this “are we safer” question.

It’s just stupid. I want to be defended, not wrapped in cotton.

Dodd, of course, thinks we are not safer, whatever that means.

Timmy is trying to do some damage to Dodd, though heaven knows why. He is no threat to Mrs. Bill Clinton.

Ugh... FNS... Chris Wallace now practically shilling for Hillary now. “But she’s a woman, Laura! How can you not have an inkling of support for her?”

Laura: “Because I vote Republican.”

Possibly Russert sees Dodd as a potential VP candidate and Russert would rather see someone else in that slot...?

Bless you for watching Christopher Dodd and reporting it, so we don't have to. Let me know when he declares that he is running for 2012 as well (no point in letting time slide on that, is there?)

"Are we safer" sounds like a symptom that indicates Bush Derangement Syndrome. That probably means we will hear it more and more.

Dodd says that the telcom companies that did not cooperate with the government suffered financially. Timmy tries to pin him down on this. He says, but way of support, there are allegations out there.

Someone this irresponsible is running for president. Unbelievable.

You must steel yourself to watch the condescension from Chris Wallace when he closes his interview with Mrs Bush.

As a woman please let me say HE OFFENDED ME!!!!!

He started out by insinuating that the world sees her as hanging out in the private quarters of the White House, and ends by saying “you’re pretty good as a Sunday morning guest.”

That’s the difference between liberalism and conservatism.

Liberals want to be coddled, protected, “safe” from anything that happens to them. Conservatives want to be left alone and handle any threats themselves.

Now Timmy is basically accusing Dodd of protecting hedge fund companies because they contribute to his campaign.

Jindal now up on FNS... he’s ready for this interview. He’s got a fire in his belly and has got some good answers thus far. He’s railed against corruption, says Katrina gave an opportunity to make some much needed reforms. Calls pre-Katrina LA a “charity house.”

LOL. Timmy shows Dodd the current polls in which he is at zero. Steven Colbert is doing better.

Dodd’s answer...there is room to grow. LOL.

'It has nothing to do with a Mac or PC. It has to do with the government changing the dates last year. Unless your computer (MAC or PC or time chip on any product) is updated, it will change based on the old dates.'<

That is why I suggested it might be done on-line. I have done nothing to change anything, and my Mac G4 did not change today - the old date for time change.

Actually... no. Who's he going to steal votes from? Clinton's got most of the Democrat base. Obama has the "I don't want Hillary" types. Edwards has the big-government socialists. Richardson has the moderates. And there are still a few nuts that still want Al Gore despite the fact he's not ever going to give up his high-paying job on the speaker circuit to run a campaign.

Jindal: The GOP was not conservative enough in 2006. We need to return to our principled roots.

Spot on.

I'm way behind and only just finished the preview stuff. Rather than posting a separate thread I'm going to burden Alas Babylon!'s thread with my musings and links. Hope I don't bust the system.

Preview and Analysis for Weekend of October 27th and 28th, 2007

Guest lineup for the Sunday TV news shows:

NBC's "Meet the Press"
  • Sen. Chris Dodd, D-CT
  • Tom DeFrank, New York Daily News
  • William Safire, New York Times

CBS's "Face the Nation"

  • Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
  • Sen. Carl Levin, D-MI
  • Roger Simon, Politico.COM

Fox News Sunday

  • FLOTUS Laura Bush
  • Gov. elect Bobby Jindal, R-LA
CNN "Late Edition"
  • Mohamed ElBaradei, IAEA Director General
  • Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-CA
  • Trent Lott, R-MS
  • Mike Huckabee, R-AR

ABC's "This Week"

  • Sen. John McCain, R-AZ
  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
  • Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-CA

Well, here we are, like it or not.  The Dhimmicrats and their allies in the DBM are forced to relaunch their pogrom program ... what is it?  the 98th time... of world domination and simultaneous surrender to their Jihadi overlords.  Go figure.  We've got presidential (also ran) candidates Dodd (D), McCain (R) and Hunter (R) along with overvalued members of the legislature Graham, Boxer, Levin, Lott and Feinstein.  For variety we have fist lady Laura Bush (just back from a trip they can criticize) and Louisiana governor elect Bobby Jindal. Oh, and they grace us with Mohamed ElBaradei, Tom DeFrank, William Safire and Roger Simon for "balance".  Oh, goody!

NBC Meet The Press gives us the new darling of the nutroots, Chris Dodd.  Do you suppose that he might be pandering to their insane agenda to get some votes?  Wow!  What a notion!  Following senator "I'll do anything to  buy their votes" Dodd we are treated to Tom DeFrank and William Safire, two pundits guaranteed to put anyone watching to sleep.  Lil' Timmah really  screwed up on his booking this week.  Maybe he doesn't want to interfere with the World Series?  Whatever.

CBS Face The Nation has Carl "the wise old owl" Levin and Lindsay "two face" Graham.  The big question of the day is whether good Lindsay or bad Lindsey will show up.  We may get a treat and see both sides of this schizo today.  The central theme seems to be a bit of "inside baseball" considering whether New Hampshire will get to be the first primary or not.  We may end up only hours away from the first primary of 2008, sometime in December 2007.  Roger Simon of the Politico is along to pour gasoline on the barely smoldering embers of this "major controversy" and get the folks in his home state of New Hampshire completely bent out of shape.  I have this fantasy of the primaries being locked up in January with Hillary winning the nomination, an absolute lock, right before she's indicted on something in February.  Delicious.

Fox News Sunday brings us first lady Laura Bush, fresh from her hajib wearing tour of the Middle East.  No doubt Chris Wallace is going to throw all of those evil right wing bloggers comments about her daring to wear a head scarf in deference to sharia law in her face.  In fact I think that's why they booked her.  I have a feeling that not only will Laura hold her own against Mike Wallace's little boy, but she'll end up making him cry like a little girl, or wish he could.  To round out Wallace's humiliation he has Bobby Jindal.  You know the inside the beltway bigotry about the Indian American Republican governor elect of Louisiana and I expect Wallace to grotesquely embarrass himself in this one.  We may be looking at a future president in Governor Jindal and I don't think Wallace has a clue what he's going to be facing.  It's a "classic" roundtable with Hume, Kristol, Liaison and Williams, no doubt focusing on Bill "the war lover" Kristol's plans to start world war 3 by advocating an unprovoked attack on the peace loving mullah's in Tehran.  Really.  At least according to the nutroots, that is.

CNN Late Edition seems to be going a little light this week with only Mohamed ElBaradei of the IAEA from the usual UN chorus and three domestic pols.  ElBaradei is front and center to denounce the Bush administration for condemning Tehran's nuclear weapons program and for daring to suggest that that Iran is actually already waging war on us.  Just because they're killing American soldiers in Iraq, that isn't anything we should be upset about.  After all, we shouldn't be anywhere in the Uma anyway, so it's really all our fault.  After Mohamed Wolfie brings us one of CNN's favorite RINOs, Trent Lott.  He can always be counted on to stab conservatives in the back or serve up embarrassingly ignorant comments that can be used to pummel conservatives with (he's OUR guy, don't you know?).  I think he's on to blame all ills in this country on a) FEMA and b) evil insurance companies.  He'll no doubt threaten legislation if Geico doesn't completely pay for replacing Tom Cruise's Scientology bunker in Malibu, or some such nonsense.  Barbara Boxer is on to tell us how George Bush and the Iraq war are to blame for the California fires.  That's her story and she's sticking to it.  Mike Huckabee is this weeks media darling, "surging" in Iowa and passing Romney in the national polls.  As a bonus he can be spun to fit the DBM narrative of Republicans being nothing but rednecks who are intolerant religious fanatics and won't vote for anything but an evangelical.  Hillary's hope for winning the White House is based on splitting the Republicans and making them fight amongst themselves.  CNN is doing their part to see that that happens.

ABC This Week celebrates Halloween by rolling out the crypt keeper, John McCain.  They determined two years ago that he was their front runner and they don't let a narrative die easy.  They also think he might be building up to this years "Howard Dean scream" type moment as things begin to get nasty in New Hampshire and shows signs of real competition in South Carolina.  They follow McCain with a tag team of California legislators, Dianne Feinstein and Duncan Hunter.  Both are likely to criticize "Bush's bureaucrats" for some failings related to the California fires.  Dianne is probably going to focus on something like his failure to implement Kyoto as being the root cause of the fires while Hunter will kvetch about the US military not being the first responder for the fires.  They'll both probably implicitely defend Boxer's accusations about Iraq draining California's National Guard.  Hello?  Remember when you all voted for the "peace dividend" and raped the military budget in the 90s?

The Saturday shows (obviously already done) were all over the map, and the schedule.  I didn't watch the Fox shows because they've changed two of them from evening to daytime and I didn't know that till they were over.  The Beltway Boys focused on the Clintons, inevitable I'm sure, and the infighting in the Republican camp.  I don't think they even buy their shtick anymore.  Tim Russert's Show on MSNBC continues with yet more Stephen Colbert plus Howie Kurtz hyping his new book on the decline and fall of the dinosaur media.  Timmah won't let him get away with that.  Fox News Watch looks at the finger pointing in California, no doubt to defend placing the blame on McChimpy Bushitler and global warming, followed by dismissal of complaints about the coverage, or lack thereof, for Lt. Michael Murphy's Medal of Honor.  I'm glad I didn't see this as I have a feeling I would have smashed my TV listening to Neal's venom on that one.  The Journal Editorial Report brings us a glimpse of the emerging new Czarist Russia, followed by Rudy's bogus journey through evangelical land and finishes up with a look at the real root causes of the California fire disaster.

So, the Dhimmicrats are doing their best Night of the Living Dead imitation with their agenda that will not die... again.  Let's see if I get the narrative right.  Bush is lying and Iran really isn't alreday waging war against us.  Bush wants to kill sick children and throw seniors out on the street by stealing their Social Security.  The fires in California were caused by global warming and they can't fight them because all of the able bodied Californians and their equipment are either torturing women and children in Iraq or have been killed by Dick Cheney's order by Blackwater contractors.  Oh, and the Republicans are racists and the election of Bobby Jindal proves it.

That about sums that up.

This should be cross posted to my blog at later today.

This thread exists primarily as a heads up for who is on the weekend talks shows, what they've been invited on to push (based on their recent pronouncements) and the spin (meme) the DBM is likely trying to push based on that information. All of this is prep work for the weekly Sunday Morning Talk Show thread posted by Alas Babylon!. That thread provides a live commentary and analysis of the Sunday talking head shows, with valuable insight and exceptional fact checking. we are the Jedi Council of FreeRepublic, at least in regards to these DBM gabfests. You wanna know what was said and what it meant, as well as where they messed up? Read that thread!

Mark Kilmer has posted his excellent preview of the Sunday shows over at Redstate.COM.

Politico.COM has their Sunday Talk Show Tip Sheet

Below are the topics and guests announced for these programs, along with my take on the "memes" that the shows are trying to push.  With each guest's name are a series of links that I found in a web search that helped me get a handle on who they are and what their likely positions will be when they are interviewed.

Mac has this option - setting daylight savings time automatically & connected to Apple America time server. So, it will sync automatically no matter how many times Congress chose to change these.

I am beginning to wonder if Timmy is going to let his guests speak.

Ah, yes, finally they get their turn.
