Relics of the Past on the Sunday Morning shows
Today the Sunday morning shows turned over a few rocks & found some antiques to display in the aftermath of the killing of Osama bin Laden. Fox News Sunday exhumed former VP Dick Cheney, Christine Amanpour on ABC turned up former Secy of State Condoleezza Rice, Face the Nation on CBS brought back former Sec'y of Defense Donald Rumsfeld & to top it all off returning for a moment from well-deserved oblivion former NYC Mayor (before much to NYC's relief he became America's mayor) Rudolph Giuliani appeared on NBC's Meet the Press. The one thing each of these guests have in common is the word "former" before their name. They are all relics of the Bush era. Of course, the other thing they have in common is that they have nothing new to add to our knowledge of what just happened in Pakistan, but self-justification to spout, lots of 'splainin to do. If the morning shows weren't themselves relics they would have chosen to look to the future instead of regurgitating the past.
