Sunday Bobbleheads: Fair & Balanced

Atrios looks at the schedule of guests on Sundays' network talking heads' shows and observes:
So, let's take these one by one.

Joe Biden - supported the war
Richard Lugar - supported the war
Duncan Hunter - supported the war
Kevin Bacon - unsure of his opinion on war.

Jim Webb - opposed war, though not in Senate at time.
Mitch McConnell - supported the war
Arlen Specter - supported the war

Mike Huckabee - supported the war
Chuck Schumer - supported the war
David Vitter - supported the war
Gerson - former Bush speechwriter, supported the war
Kenneth Pollack - supported the war

Chris Dodd - supported the war
Jon Kyl - suppported the war
Michael Steele - supported the war
Donna Brazile - unsure if she took stand on Iraq war, but is on board of wingnutty Foundation for the Defense of Democracies.

Sam Brownback - supported the war
Joe Lieberman - loves the war
Ellen Miller - N/A

So, while I have somewhat mixed feelings about relevance and effectiveness of protest politics, it's clear that 4 years later the dirty fucking hippies really have no choice but to take to the streets to get the message out.
In another post he concludes that:
I guess American Exceptionalism has been redefined as Exceptionally Ignorant.

Amen, FauxNews.

Or, as Stephen Colbert said: the media's job is to show both sides... the President's... and the Vice-President's.
