Day Two of the Republcian Shutdown. Greg Dworkin rounds up Dana Perino's nativist nonsense, the collapse of institutional Gop leadership, shutdown polling, online ACA sign-ups, and more. Joan McCarter joined us for discussion of procedural developments in Congress and the scramble to come up with mini-bills to re-open bits and pieces of the government that make good press copy. And that means in-depth explanations of the "suspension of the rules" procedure, motions to recommit, and discharge petitions. Woohoo! We also discuss gerrymandering, the importance of state and local elections and party-building, and how even a "clean" CR enshrines sequestration. Lastly, Charles Pierce's "The Reign of Morons Is Here."
