Welcome to Press the Face, a Sunday-morning talk show liveblog where you can respond to the Sunday talks with your opinions, support, refutations, or ravings. The larger goal is to provide meaningful accounts of the the shows for those who are unable to watch them, but it's also an opportunity to share our thoughts in real time as armchair spectators of the sport of political discussion.
Obamas welcome nonissue

Mr. and Mrs. Barack Obama of Honolulu have been delivered of a moot point, born August 4 at 7:24 p.m. The irrelevant affair came into being at Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital, as the existence of their baby was confirmed by dozens of observers, including physicians, nurses, four nurses' aides, two candystripers, a janitor, the gift shop lady, the baby's grandparents, Mrs. Obama's hospital roommate and her husband, and the retired hospital volunteer who wheeled Mrs. Obama out the door and helped her into her husband's car. The grist for the gossip mill was released several days after the birth, and both parents looked forward to watching the non-controversy grow into into a robust non sequitur.

A review of the liveblog ground rules may be found here.

A reminder about posting: Please scroll through the Comments section to the blockquote containing the title of the show you're commenting on and post your comment under that. This helps to keep the comments from bottlenecking at the top of the diary.

Also, don't forget to record your nominee for the Money Quote under the blockquote comment of each show.

Let us go then, you and I. . .

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
