Watch Matt Welch Talk Government Shutdown Tonight at 8:50 and 11:00 on MSNBC

I will be adding my two cents on the long-awaited government shutdown tonight on All In with Chris Hayes at around 8:50 ET, and then be part of MSNBC's live coverage of the countdown (will there be a disco ball?) beginning at 11 pm.

Earlier today I argued that Republicans in this fight have squandered what should have been a good political hand.

UPDATE: I won't be on at 11 pm after all.

    On MSNBC? Wow, that's gutsy.

    Stay strong, Matt. Don't get dazzled by their cocktail party invites, which I read here at H+R that you love. (I hope that's not indicative of a drinking problem.)

    I see drinking more as a solution, actually.

    Can they get Slick Willy on to reminisce about his blow-job?

    Always a safe claim.

    Now they got no Hand.

    Is the 11:00PM episode just a repeat of the 8:00PM show? Because I would have watched but I discovered Airwolf was showing on the G4 network, whatever the fuck that is. I don't remember the show being that stupid, or Jan-Michael Vincent being that drunk in the first season for that matter.

    "Republican strategist Matt Welch" has such a nice ring to it.
