@McCormackJohn / Shutdown / Tom Clancy / #404care Obamacare Rollout

This week Gabe, Drew, John E., Andy and Rick Tempest are joined by John McCormack of The Weekly Standard to discuss the government shutdown, the death of author Tom Clancy and the laughably bad rollout of the Obamacare enrollment system, or, as it’s called on the blog, 404care.

@sonnybunch / AR-15 / Starbucks / Washington Redskins / ObamaCare Defund or Delay / Free Bacon

On today’s episode, PhD’s Andy, Drew M., John E. and Rick Tempest are joined by Sonny Bunch, PhD, Editor of The Washington Free Beacon.

We discuss the media’s rush to blame the AR-15 for the Navy Yard shooting, Starbucks’ announcement on open carry, the Washington Redskins and the media’s selectivity with regard to calling things by their rightful names and, last but not least, the Doctors reluctantly wade into a discussion of the GOP’s internecine warfare over ObamaCare.

Pay close attention around the hour and ten minute mark to hear Dr. Tempest unveil his Barack Obama and Jay Carney impersonations.

Note: We are shamelessly employing the Free Beacon’s subliminal advertising strategy in the episode title.
