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.

Episode 234 – Fiscal Cliff Holidays

The Tim Corrimal Show
Episode 234 – December 9, 2012

On episode 234 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined at the round table by Joe (@marnus3 on Twitter), John Sheirer (@RealAmericanLib on Twitter) who’s the author of the book “Tales of a Real American Liberal“ and Seth (@SethP23 on Twitter) from the “VeganESP Blog”.

On the show the weekend, we start out with introductions and Seth shares his story of delivering Toys for Tots with the US Marines this Holiday Season.  Then after the “All A Tweetie” segment, we discuss the “Fiscal Cliff” situation with Tim Geithner laying out the President’s position and the right wing freak out on Fox News.  Then after a fabulous Holiday commercial from our great friends at BubbleGenius.com, we continue the discussion with Sarah Palin’s “socialism, socialism, socialism” clip as well as Mitch McConnell filibustering his own bill after he brought it to the floor of the US Senate.  And then we discuss Bob Costas’ response to the media freak out over his gun control comment and Jan Brewer’s comment comparing undocumented immigrants to drunk drivers.  And since the Supreme Court will be taking up the Prop 8 and DOMA cases in 2013, we close out with a hilarious clip in support of Gay Marriage.

Happy Holidays!
