Episode 268 Show Art - Dead GOP Elephant - Shutdown

On episode 268 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined at the round table by Joe (@Marnus3 on Twitter), Sarah (S_Cosgrove on Twitter) and Paddy (@PaddyK on Twitter) from “The Political Carnival” Blog.

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 lead up to the US Government shutdown starting with Chris Matthews calling out Rep. Scott Perry about the situation as well as Rep Tom Cole admitting that the Republicans will be hurt by a Government shutdown. Then we discuss Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s ridiculous interview on FOX where she says Americans need to learn to live with less Government and on the other side Rep. John Larson calls out the GOP on their Government shutdown strategy. Then we discuss the President’s speech on the day the shutdown began.  And after another fabulous commercial from our great friends over at BubbleGenius.com, we discuss Michele Bachmann’s pandering attempt to the US World War 2 Veterans memorial, Rep Marlin Stutzman’s statement about the GOP plan, and the FOX News ‘slimdown’ spin.  Then we close out the show with Laura Ingraham dishing the over 800,000 non-essential Federal workers who are affected by the US Government shutdown calling them unnecessary and a synopsis of the right wing media trying to spin the shutdown in their favor.
