THE LINEUP:

Meet The Press:  Paul Begala & Mike Murphy. Very Serious Discourse with Hillary Duff fan David Gregory, somnambulant Gwen Ifill, Peggy Noonan, Chuck Todd and David Yepsen.  NBC bigwigs considering Chuck Todd and David Gregory as part of an ensemble to host MTP after Brokaw retreats to Montana.

Tweety:  Richard Stengel, Michele Norris, Joe Scarborough and conservative outcast Kathleen Parker.  Predictions here.  They report Hurricane Sarah coming to Florida to work the Rove strategy of narrow ugly win using the base.  Good luck with that.

This Weak:  BATTLEGROUND BONANZA: Off-message Gov. Ed Rendell (D), Passed Over Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R), Worst politician in Florida Sen. Mel Martinez (R), and Ohio Patriot Sherrod Brown (D).  Karen Tumulty, Supersexy Katrina Vanden Heuvel, The Wall Street Journal's Gerald Seib, and George Will talk about McCain rising from the ashes of the worst gop presidential campaign in my lifetime.

Face The Nation:  Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Lieberman) and Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D).  Rep Roy Blunt (R-MO) and future grand jury subpoena recipient Heather Wilson.

Fixed Noise:  The Architect of 22% & future presidential pardon recipient Karl Rove.

Late Edition with Wolf:  McCain economic destruction advisor Nancy Pfotenhaue.  
Candy Crowley, Gloria Borger, Ed Henry, dull gop strategist Alex Castellanos, Hilary Rosen, gop strategist Leslie Sanchez and Donna Brazile discuss how McCain will become the comeback kid.

60 Minutes:  The Delta Force officer leading the hunt for Bin Laden in Tora Bora recalls how Tommy Franks is the stupidest fucking general on the planet for letting that bastard escape for free.  Another example of John Kerry being right.  Wall Street's imaginary numbers game.  The race for the electric car between Silicon Valley and Detroit.  My money is on the valley.

Fareed Zakaria GPS (CNN):  Bill Gates and various ambassadors & analysts I can't pronounce.

Football Night in America on NBC:  Keith Olbermann previews how much the Jaguars will whip the Steelers.

         
                                         October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

NOTABLE TV ALERTS -

UNTAMED & UNCUT (Animal Planet):  Double Great White Shark attack on surfer.

THE VIEW:  Felicity Huffman 10/6; Sarah Silverman 10/7; Special Breast Cancer show 10/8; the beautiful Angela Bassett 10/9; Maggie Gyllenhaal (who was better than Katie Holmes in Dark Knight) 10/10.

THE DAILY SHOW:  Tim Robbins 10/6; Sarah Vowell 10/7; Robert DeNiro 10/9.

LETTERMAN:  Russell Crowe, Sarah Vowell, The Pretenders 10/6; Debra Messing 10/7; Dennis Quaid, Buddy Guy 10/8; Bill Murray, Beck 10/9; Jeremy Piven, Lou Reed 10/10.

NOW (PBS Friday):  What's up with our crappy public transportation?

TAVIS SMILEY:  Oliver Stone, Peggy Noonan 10/10.

REGIS & KELLY:  Alicia Keys 10/6; Sarah McLachlan 10/7

FLOP ALERT:  CW network ordering episodes of a series called The Graysons, based on the life of Robin's family.  As in Batman's sidekick.  Ugh.

FUNNY RANDOM NOTABLE -

50 State Strategy crippling McCain:

Check out this cool NYT article on Obama carpetbombing the gop from sea to shining sea.  Awesome.

         

This week, look for Angry Johnny to be even angrier and to really let the muck start flying.

Just look at the seething anger in his face:

Frightening.

Though his media friends have been tough on him lately, we all know that won't last.

Like a rotting corpse brought back to life in search of brainz, expect the traditional media to try and resurrect the dead narrative of McCain as a phoenix, rising up from political death to triumph as the underdog.  
These stupid narratives are hard to kill.  They don't die like most men do.

Hard to belive it's autumn already.  With Halloween right around the corner, be sure to keep an eye on your children while trick-or-treating.  You wouldn't want some creepy old weirdo to get ahold of them.


Angry Johnny eats ze babies.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
