Best Quotes From the Weekend Shows 12.20 – 12.23

ABC’s “This Week” - “George, he has contacted a foreign country and said, I will sell you classified information for something of value.  That’s what we call a traitor in this country.”  - Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) on Edward Snowden’s letter to Brazil.

CBS’s “Face the Nation” - ”A whistle blower doesn’t run.  A whistle blower does not disclose information that has nothing to do with what he says his cause is, which is the privacy and civil liberties of Americans.”  - Former CIA Director Michael Morell on Snowden.

“Fox News Sunday” – “Well, he said it in a way that would be a little more probably appropriate for the duck woods than it would be for the pages of a major news magazine.”  - Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.

NBC’s “Meet the Press” – “I don’t think about the presidency. I think about the job that I’m doing at the moment.” –  IMF managing Director Christine Lagarde on running for President in France.

CNN’s “State of the Union” -”They said hey Joe, we’re OK with the bill. We like the bill. The bill is not bad at all. We can live with that. But we just don’t trust government stopping and doing what we say we’re going to do.” – Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) on the failure of his background check bill.

PBS’s Washington Week – “There may be a strong feeling, not a unanimous one, that they should concede the phone program; let the phone companies keep that in the name of preserving other parts of the intelligence community’s efforts, especially the ability to look at overseas Internet communications, which they frankly think are more important.” – NBC’s Pete Williams on the intelligence community’s attitude towards reforming the NSA.

BTV’s  ”Political Capital” – “These incredibly important programs -Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security -are not sustainable in their current form. We’ve got to get at those. The only times we’ve done it over the last three decades, Al, has been a debt limit discussion.”  - Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) on what conditions he would put on a debt limit increase.

JFK Death Cult Takes Over the Airwaves

This guy died once.

This guy died once.

John F. Kennedy died today -well not today, rather IT WAS 50 YEARS AGO. Nonetheless the news media are expending all their resources to bring you breathless reporting from That Place In Dallas Where Things Happened Once. Interviews abound with super important people like Woman Who Was In the Crowd When It Happened, Person Who Was Alive in 1963, and Man Who Cried One Time Thinking About It All.

Everyone is being a bit ludicrous today, but two networks have really taken the cake, our friends at NBC and CNN.

NBCNews.com will, ludicrously, be reporting the news today ALL DAY as if it were 1963. Literally from 11:40 AM CT to 11:26 PM CT -we have a press release about it. We suppose they will change their URL to NBCOlds.com as well. What’s more, Brian Williams and Tom Brokaw will be live in Dallas at 1:28 PM ET today to commemorate the Moment JFK Was Shot, AND Brian Williams will be broadcasting the “Nightly News” from Dealey Plaza, AND NBC will air Tom Brokaw’s documentary “Where Were You: The Day JFK Died” for two hours at 9:00. Let’s hope Pete Williams is on stand-by somewhere in case any important news breaks.

Oh, and just in case you have literally nothing to do with your life, NBCOlds.com also has a livestream of the Eternal Flame! NBC, it is literally called the Eternal Flame because it does not change! Livestream not required!

This flame is doing nothing, which is why it is important.

And then there’s CNN, which ran a graphic this morning comparing the approval ratings of President Obama (41%) and President Kennedy (90%). Well what an extremely useful comparison. How do Americans feel about the guy who was President for less than 3 years, 50 years ago, and whose party had massive majorities in both Houses of Congress, versus the guy who is currently President and is mired in the midst of the most bitter partisan warfare of the past, well, ever? What could account for the disparity?

You know what would be even more useful? Let’s throw George Washington into the mix. Surely there must be some profound insights as to why G-Dubs gets a 100% rating versus JFK’s 90%. Maybe, like, time passing?

Oh there’s more, after the jump…
