Here's your Sunday morning talking heads lineup, plus some words of wisdom from Rep. Jamie Raskin for Mike Pence.

Hello everyone. After a long hiatus, I'm filling in again on a Sunday here at Crooks & Liars so that two of my wonderful colleagues, Karoli and Aliza, can have some time visiting in D.C. this weekend. If you haven't checked out their podcast, you can do so at their Momocrats Blog Talk Radio page, or now at their YouTube channel as well.

While they're enjoying themselves, I'll be watching the Sunday morning yak-fest and keeping an eye on things here.

Here's the lineup for this week via Politico:
