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.
