The Tim Corrimal Show
Episode 247 – May 5, 2013
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.
