Sunday Show Guests

It's Rita-affected-officials day on the talk shows tomorrow. Here are the lineups:

Meet the Press (NBC): Their website says they'll have "federal, state, and local officials" talking about the Rita aftermath, and NYT columnists David Brooks, Maureen Dowd, and Tom Friedman will guest. It's a rare day to see Dowd on t.v., so if you like her, don't miss it.

This Week (ABC): Senators Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) will talk Rita, and then John McCain (R-AZ) will talk everything else (plus Rita too, presumably). Donna Brazile, David Gergen, and George Will will roundtable with Steph.

Fox News Sunday: Texas senator John Cornyn and Louisiana's David Vitter are the main guests, the usual group (Liasson, Williams, Kristol) will yap, and then Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player will talk golf.

Late Edition (CNN): Rita-state Senators Mary Landrieu, David Vitter, and John Cornyn will be on, along with Senators Susan Collins and Joe Lieberman from the Government Reform Committee. Gov. Bill Richardson of NM also appears, as does Mary Evans, the head of the Red Cross.

Once again, CBS' Face the Nation doesn't have its schedule out yet.
