Political Pundits and Commentators Prepare for Jeopardy (VIDEO)

Host of MSNBC’s Hardball Chris Matthews, Former Bush administration Press Secretary Dana Perino, host of Fox News Sunday Chris Wallace, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Former Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, and NY Times columnist Tom Friedman are among the contestants that will be competing for the title of Political Talking Head Jeopardy Champion.  Actually, I’m not sure that’s the angle the network is playing; but I think you probably get the picture.

Actually, I’m not really sure how they put the cast together.  The addition of Kareem Abdul-Jabar has me scratching my head a bit.  When I think of the NBA great, I tend to think basketball, but his role as Global Cultural Ambassador, I suppose, warrants his inclusion.  Lewis Black and Dr. Oz, on the other hand, not so much.

While I would have loved seeing Charles Krauthammer in the field, I do very much look forward to seeing if Tom Friedman can prove what we all know he thinks – that is he, of course, the smartest man on the Flat, Hot, and Crowded planet….

The tournament will air May 14-18
