Welcome to another version of your quickly-typed semi-liveblog of your various, Sunday political chat roulettes. My name is Jason. We've had quite a week of pseudo-events, haven't we? Royal weddings, and birth certificate reveals, and White House Correspondents' Dinners, and today the news media will almost certainly struggle to cover these stories alongside the more important ones they also struggle to cover, whilst omitting the ones they aren't smart enough to cover at all. And panels will discuss these things!
What is the Congress going to do to stave off a government shut down? Well, their workin' it out with Smilin' Joe Biden. Maybe they'll just cut a few things each week?
