There are now only two more Sunday mornings before the election, and things are getting awfully rote, now. Surrogates spin whatever is going on in whatever way they can to project a winning attitude.
Hello, hello again, to all of you joining me today in this long-running exercise in self-torture, your Sunday morning liveblog of the political twit-talking and panel jamborees that appear on your teevees. My name is Jason, and we are but a fortnight and change from the election. You know, which one I am talking about right?
Today we'll begin with David Axelrod and Ed Gillespie dully going through the surrogacy motions. I appreciate the way Chris Wallace says "Axelrod and Gillespie!" as if that's something worth rejoicing. Whoa, guys, major gets, there. Can't wait to hear what they have to say, I'm sure it would be difficult for me to predict, just sitting here.
In short, it was a strange week, full of strange and unwanted metaphors. And the worst part of all is that once again I have failed to find the horcruxes of the Sunday Morning Television Shows and so I must once again watch them and recap them.
There are six weeks before the election, which is just about the most generic number of weeks that can possibly be before something. "Six weeks" is the number you tell people when you are pretty sure that something is going to happen in a little over a month, but aren't completely sure.
Well, hello and good morning and welcome once again to your Sunday morning fast-typed and quickly-reacted to chronicle of the nation's televised baffl...
Could anyone have turned things around in four years, better than has been done by the Obama administration. Hubbard says no. He says that Romney is awesome though, and Obama is terrible, so what are you going to do, America?
Well, hello, there, everyone and welcome to yet another edition of your speedily-typed chronicle of what is happening or has happened (depending on yo...
Is Wisconsin up for grabs this year? Walker says yes. I say check back in three weeks time. Ohio, Florida, and Virginia are way more competitive.
DWS says that Congress cares more about defeating the President than putting Americans back to work. GSteph asks about the Federal Reserve intervening, and she says that the White House should not dictate to the Fed what they do. Why not, though?
WHO WILL HOPE THE LONDON OLYMPICS SUCCEEDS THE HARDEST? Will it be Gibbs? Madden? Boris Johnson? David Cameron? Mitt Romney? Barack Obama? Whoever does wins zero electoral votes and twenty-pound gift certificate to Boots.
Any new news? In the coming days, it seems like we'll know more about the victims of the tragedy, and how they lived, and how many of them did things to protect their fellow moviegoers, and let's hope that we can get thirty times the coverage of those people next week than we got of the killer this week.
Meanwhile, Iowa is totally kicking ass, as far as unemployment rate goes, and Obama is ahead of Romney in the polls there, too. But it's still pretty close, which means that maybe the unemployment rate as an electoral determinant isn't all it's cracked up to be?
Well, good morning everyone and welcome back to your Sunday morning liveblog of political yellery and pundit emissions. My name is Jason, and I have r...
Hello, everybody! It is Sunday morning, which must mean that I am awake and unhappy about having to watch all these horrific political chat shows, and...
This is why I actually don't mind Graham being on these Sunday shows, because while he's occupied, other Americans have a fighting chance to unconstipate America. I am working on some way of tricking Graham into believing there are Sunday shows on everyday, but so far no luck.
Hello everybody, and welcome to your weekly ad-hoc, fast-typed, snaply judged, prickly thorn, but sweetly worn liveblog of Sunday morning political gr...
All of Chris Matthews' friends think that Obama will be held responsible for negative attacks on Romney. (No one held him particularly responsible for negative attacks on McCain, though!) I often wonder what you are supposed to do, in politics, if you are never allowed to criticize your opponent!
