Good morning, everyone, and welcome back to your well-rested liveblog of the Sunday morning garbage monsters and their teevee shows. My name is Jason, and I have not been in the United States lately. Did I miss anything important?

Hola, my Sunday morning ponies, and welcome once again to a summertime edition of the Sunday Morning Liveblog of the Political Chat Shows, in which I court an existential crisis by watching some of the most terrible televised misadventures ever set in front of cameras.

Hello everyone and welcome back to another Sunday morning of quickly-typed recaps of political blathering shows. My name is Jason, and I'm really wondering why we haven't just gotten rid of "waking up on Sundays" as a concept altogether. Really, it should be just banned, from American life.

Today, Chris Matthews is... doing a special episode on the Kennedy administration? Oh, man, this was a mistake, recording this. I really should pay better attention to details, like what nonsense Chris Matthews is going to be talking about.

Good morning to one and all and welcome again to your quickly-typed liveblog of the facepalms and sighs that result from watching the flickering images of the Sunday morning political prattle programs.

Today, it looks like most of the action is centered on the various things that Congress might actually try to pull off -- like, passing laws and stuff. It's been a tricky hang of late, what with all the terrible incompetence.

We have wrapped up the annual CPAC conference, we have a new Pope, we have no Grand Bargain, and apparently the clouds are going to belch one more layer of slush on Washington before winter is finally dragged off into the woods to be put down, once and for all.

There are apparently going to be multiple roundtable blather-cons today, beginning with the opening act: Representative Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), Representative Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) (also possessor of Congress' fiercest mustache), George Will, and Christiane Amanpour.

If you are planning to come to Inauguration tomorrow, I'll warn you in advance that it definitely falls under the category of a supposedly fun thing that you'll never do again, like going to Times Square on New Year's Eve (never, ever, EVER do this) or visiting your old high school math teacher (ugh, so disappointing).

Hey everybody! Wow, it's the end of yet another year on this earth and the end of another year of watching and then liveblogging these Sunday morning chit-chat shows, out of professional obligation. Hi there!

It looks very much like now until the end of the year we will be spending our Sundays watching various people act all panicky over the Fiscal Glyph that is dominating the news.

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.

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.

Let's have some affable conversations about politics punctuated by video clips from Chris Matthews' favorite SNL routines, okay?

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?

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.

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!

This is probably not the conversation Priebus would prefer to have, by the way -- a lengthy discussion of same-sex marriage? There's a contrast, and that's the point: it needs no further elucidation.

Should Obama run against the Supreme Court? Hume says that it would be "ineffective" and notes that as controversial as the Court is, it is the only thing in Washington that still has a positive approval rating.

Today, Chris Wallace will chat with Rick Santorum, for whom few things have gone right, about Super Tuesday. And then Lindsey Graham and Richard Blumenthal will yell at each other about Iran. Also, the Washington Caucus thingy happened, and Mitt Romney won.
