Rep. Schock to make his first appearance on 'Meet the Press'

Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) will make his first appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" this Sunday, and he tweeted in celebration Friday.

It's no surprise the freshman was happy; it's rare for first year lawmakers, especially from the lower chamber, to appear on the Sunday morning talk shows.

His tweet parroted the show's signature sign-off line, coined by its late host Tim Russert:

If it's Sunday....making my first visit to Meet the Press on Sunday.
