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.
