This week we once again assess the number of ding-a-lings scheduled to appear on the Sunday morning talk show roundtables. This feature appears to be catching on. At a Cartoons & Cocktails event at the Newseum last night, a FishbowlDC reader asked about the frame for our beautiful artistic penis picture. It was a proud moment. More importantly, let’s hope the powers that be remember to put more women on their panels in the weeks to come. The numbers this week are pretty dismal. But as usual, NBC’s Chris Matthews has his usual 50 percent female panel.
