Episode 250 – Crackpots

The Tim Corrimal Show
Episode 250 – May 26, 2013

Show Art - Crackpots

On episode 250 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined at the round table by Joe (@marnus3 on Twitter), Justice Putnam (@justiceputnam on Twitter) from NetrootsRadio.com and http://www.dailykos.com/user/justiceputnam and Mikel Weisser (@mikelweisser on Twitter) who just launched his campaign for 2014 as a Democratic candidate for Congress in Arizona – http://www.mikelweisser.org/.

On this week’s show we start out with introductions and the “All A Tweetie” segment, then we begin the political discussion with the GOP Talking Point Sunday Morning Shows where Rand Paul implies that the IRS has a ‘written policy’ about targeting people who are opposed to the President and David Gregory challenges Peggy Noonan on her column trying to compare the IRS situation to Watergate.  Then we discuss IRS official Lois Lerner pleading the 5th amendment in a House hearing and a Fox news commentator making a ridiculous claim that the IRS situation proves that government bureaucrats orchestrated the President’s reelection in 2012. Then after a hilarious Father’s Day commercial from our great friends over at BubbleGenius.com, we discuss Iowa Rep. Steve King arguing that statistics show that Ronald Reagan’s 1986 immigration amnesty law led to President Obama’s election. Then we close out the show discussing the horrendous tornadoes in Oklahoma starting with President Obama speaking about the tragedy, Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn saying that relief from the Federal Government was unnecessary and Alex Jones manufacturing a crazy conspiracy that the Government could have been behind the Oklahoma tornado’s using a ‘Weather Weapon’.

Episode 249 – Seriously?

The Tim Corrimal Show
Episode 249 – May 19, 2013

Episode 249 Show Art - Worse than Watergate? Seriously?

On episode 249 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined at the round table by Joe (@marnus3 on Twitter), Sarah (@S_Cosgrove on Twitter) and Jeff and Lori Wilfahrt, who’s son, Corporal Andrew C. Wilfahrt, was a gay member of the military who was killed in Afghanistan in 2011 and have been working on the Marriage Equality fight in the State of Minnesota.

On this week’s show we start out with introductions and the “All A Tweetie” segment, then we begin the political discussion with President Obama speaking out about the GOP Benghazi witch hunt at a press conference and Dianne Feinstein pointing out that the latest Benghazi hearing was really about discrediting Hillary Clinton for fear of the 2016 Elections.  Then we discuss a clip where former Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, gives his thoughts on the GOP Benghazi hearings and stating that he would have made the same decisions.  And next we discuss a clip where CBS Evening News explained the collapse of the supposed scandal by highlighting the GOP modifications to the White House emails that were leaked to the press and then Jim Hightower fills us in on some world-class nincompoopism by politicians on the right. Then after another great commercial from our good buddies over at BubbleGenius.com, we discuss the IRS scandal that set everyone’s hair on fire last week and Attorney General Eric Holder calling out Rep. Darryl Issa’s conduct in a hearing calling it “shameful”. Then we close out the show discussing the fantastic passage of Gay Marriage in the Minnesota Legislature this week and Jeff and Lori Wilfahrt share their experiences being at the State Capitol for the votes and the Governor signing the Bill into law.

Bob Corker is predicting that the US will be arming Syrian rebels soon. Then after another fabulous  Mother’s Day commercial from our great friends at BubbleGenius.com, we discuss an interview with Brian Williams where Chris Christie talks about his recent lap-band weight loss surgery and our feelings about the media and social media response to the story. Then we move on to discuss a front group ad from a group labeled “Typical Moms” defending Kelly Ayotte’s recent vote against background checks for gun purchases and Michele Bachmann giving a crazy sermon in the Capitol about 9/11 and Benghazi being “God’s judgement” featuring hilarious clips from the creative talents of Rocky Mountain Mike.  Then we close out the show discussing several short clips featuring right wing conspiracy scare tactics in the main stream media.

On episode 247 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined at the round table by Joe (@marnus3 on Twitter), Francie (@Francie57 on Twitter) and GottaLaff (@GottaLaff on Twitter) from “The Political Carnival” Blog.

On this week’s show we start out with introductions and the “All A Tweetie” segment, then we begin the political discussion talking about what North Carolina conservative policy makers are up.  Then we discuss how Virginia Attorney General and GOP nominee to succeed Virginia Governor Bob “ultrasound” McDonnell, Ken Cuccinelli, thinks that the Commonwealth should outlaw sodomy, even though the US Supreme Court ruled that such laws are unconstitutional.  Then we also discuss the ongoing investigation into both Gov. McDonnell and Ken Cuccinelli’s improper use of public funds, facilities and power for personal enrichment of themselves and friends. And not to leave out more GOP fun, we discuss a CNN interview with Texas Gov. Rick Perry about how he’s open to the notion of running for president in 2016, the upcoming South Carolina Congressional special election between Elizabeth Colbert-Busch and Mark Sanford and then Jim Hightower fills us in on GOP leaders trying to put earrings on their hog. Then after another hilarious Mother’s Day commercial from our great friends at BubbleGenius.com, we discuss GOP Rep. Young’s “wetbacks” comment and the underlying racism that is still prevalent in much of American.   And then we close out the show with a discussion about Marriage Equality featuring a clip from the speech by MP Maurice Williamson on the floor of the New Zealand Parliament regarding the Marriage Equality bill that recently passed as well as a hilarious clip where Luke Russert challenged Tony Perkin’s on his bigoted anti-gay comments while he was guest hosting on MSNBC.
