Greg Dworkin joins us for an extended segment diving into the Democracy Corps report, "Inside the GOP: Report on focus groups with evangelical, Tea Party and moderate Republicans." Oh. Em. Gee. Welcome to the Republican Matrix. That takes us right into a roundup of shutdown coverage, predictions for the endgame, and analysis of the fallout. CBS Radio White House Reporter Mark Knoller kicked up some dust today with his comments on the debt ceiling, and Armando calls in to clarify the issues. We watch in horror as Chuck Todd grills Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) over his spin on the blown Grassley amendment to the ACA, and how it was resurrected during the shutdown fight. Even a decent effort at pushback can't undo all the nonsense and talking point regurgitation.
