Not included in the list of guests above is John McCain's pre-recorded interview with John King on CNN's "State of the Union."

McCain will be making his 14th appearance on a Sunday show since the Obama inauguration. The Arizona senator is in the minority party and is not in that party's leadership. Near as I can tell, he has no role in any significant legislation, nor is he involved in any current negotiations regarding foreign or domestic policy. Yet he is on my television a little less than once every three weeks.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why he is being interviewed so often. Perhaps one of the conservatives who consistently whine about liberal bias in the media can explain. I'm all ears.

McConnell? what a pontificating self important blow hard.
