GOOD MORNING, BLOGTOWN! Sunshine, love shine, touching the fibers of the feeling inside you. Letting out the things you hide... oh, yeah. LET'S GO TO PRESS.

Even though they are clearly, CLEARLY in the wrong (and a strong majority of Americans know it), President Obama has summoned Congressional leaders to the White House in order to give them another chance to stop the government shut-down (and most probably offer them a way to save face—though they clearly, CLEARLY do not deserve it). LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

And of course these Republican teabagger baby games are stopping Obama from doing the real work of his presidency—meddling in foreign affairs.

Guess who gets screwed first by the government shutdown? Ding! Ding! Ding! CORRECT. Single mothers on federal assistance.

Glitches plague the Obamacare signup sites across the nation—but keep trying, America! Let's stick it to those idiot pigs in Congress!

Military thriller author Tom Clancy has passed away at the age of 66—the cause of death was not revealed. Our condolences to his family as well as Tom Clancy fan #1, Erik Henriksen's dad.

A bomb hoax in Florida evacuates the Jacksonville International Airport. (Though in a Tom Clancy novel, this "hoax" would've been a diversion for an even BIGGER evil scheme that would lead our hero on a journey of danger and international intrigue... with culprits that reach to the highest level of government!)

The postal service defaults on a $5.6 billion payment for retiree health benefits—but this has nothing to do with the government shutdown... they've just been fucking up for years.

A NASCAR driver gets fined $10,000 for uttering a gay slur toward another driver. Attn. NASCAR hillbillies: HOMOPHOBIA DOES NOT PAY.

Another motorcyclist is arrested following the NYC incident where an SUV hits a biker, stops to help, is attacked by fellow bikers, tries to escape, accidentally hits three more bikers, is chased down, and pulled out of his car and beaten up. This is what's known as a "no-win" situation.

Benedict Cumberbund... Cumbersnatch....Cucumberpatch... WHATEVER! He's named "Sexiest Actor in the World."

Now here's what's going on in your neck of the woods: A few showers today, but drying out and sunshine through Saturday THANK GOD.

And finally, you're broke. You need some fun. So what is the least you can do? Get a Whopper, a 40, and ride.
