Episode 277 – The War on Christmas

The Tim Corrimal Show
Episode 277 – December 15, 2013

Show Art - Bubble Genius

On episode 277 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined at the round table by Joe (@Marnus3 on Twitter) from “The Left Hook” Blog and Francie (@Francie57 on Twitter).

On the show this week we start out with introductions and the “All A Tweetie” segment. Then after Joe gives us a clown car update, we discuss the President’s Weekly Address calling on Congress to pass the extension of unemployment benefits featuring another hilarious parody from Rocky Mountain Mike (@RockyMntnMike on Twitter).  Then we discuss Joe Scarborough calling out Sen. Rand Paul’s statement about unemployment benefits as well as the debate on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) between Howard Dean and Rick Santorum on CNN’s State of the Union.  And after a hilarious Holiday commercial from our great friends over at BubbleGenius.com, we discuss the right wing reaction to the death of Nelson Mandela and an eruption on the US House Floor about the GOP blocking a vote on the US Senate Immigration Bill.  Then we discuss a statement about preexisting conditions in health insurance by Ralph Hudgens at the GOP fundraiser and the shifting key issues for politicians in the 2014 mid-term elections.  And we close out the show discussing the FOX News “War on Christmas” featuring clips from Bill O’Reilly as well as Megyn Kelly’s discussion panel proclaiming that Santa and Jesus were white.
