Show Art for Episode 269 - The Federal Government remains Closed

On episode 269 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined at the round table by Joe (@Marnus3 on Twitter), Francie (@Francie57 on Twitter) and LibertyBelle (@LibertyBelleJ 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 supposed hot mic incident between Sen. Mitch McConnell and Sen. Rand Paul and Speaker John Boehner’s response. Then we discuss Sen. Rand Paul’s interview on Meet the Press and how Speaker John Boehner keep repeating that he really needs a conversation. And after another hilarious commercial from our great friends over at BubbleGenius.com, we discuss Jake Tapper’s comments on CNN as well as Chris Matthews’ panel featuring Lizz Winstead about the government shut down.  Then we discuss Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s statements on the US Senate floor about the impact of breaching the debt ceiling and Sen. Ted Cruz speaking at the Value Voters Summit about how shutting down the government and threatening to not raise the debt ceiling is the Tea Party’s model to implement their agenda over the next 2 years.  Then we close out the show discussing Michele Bachmann’s statements on a right wing radio show about attempting to impeach President Obama, featuring another hilarious parody by Rocky Mountain Mike (@RockyMntnMike on Twitter), and Bill O’Reilly on FOX News stating that Sec. of Defense, Chuck Hagel, should resign from office because the Department of Defense couldn’t pay the death benefits to families of fallen US Soldiers due to the lack of funding caused by the government shut down.
