But catastrophe and stuff!

Actor James Woods weighed in on the shutdown in his signature style.

Beautiful. But he really scored with this question about the IRS.

Bada-zing!

Hey, remember that whole “bare cupboards” remark by Nancy Pelosi? Hmm. What about the “non-essential” deal?

Snort.

Woods then suggested someone who is surely not essential.

O-Bam-tastic!

Swoon-worthy?

Amen.

    How can the IRS be closed if Obamacare is open for business?

    • Deborah Hallsted

      The question of the day.

  • Magdalene51

    If the Senate refuses to negotiate, and the government stays shut down, will anyone actually notice?

    • The Penguin, and his sperm

      Not so far.

      • http://www.IKnowbo.com/ Slam1263

        The biggest fear, before that other thing that happened, that was supposed to destroy all life on Earth, was that; no body would notice.
        I’ll give it a few days before I panic.
        The Trolls are gone from the InterWebs, for the most part.
        They must have been non-essential.

        • ObamaFail

          I’ve noticed WhoDat hasn’t been on here today. I guess his troll funding got furloughed.

          • The Penguin

            Not really seeing any trolls today. Interesting.

          • Catchance

            They’ve been in their mothers’ basements frantically trying to get enrolled in O-Care.

          • Finrod Felagund

            Sadly they’ve all been over at NRO, where there’s been more trolls than conservatives.

          • The Penguin, Ban me Willie

            Yeah they are. Just went there. and…um…wow, the stupid!

          • Finrod Felagund

            Yep. I’ve been having fun telling them to go kill themselves in various ways. None of them have taken the hint, though.

    • rssllue

      But the real question is, did it make any noise when it shut down?

  • CO2 Producer

    How many billions of dollars has this country saved already with this shutdown?

  • http://www.amazon.com/Devon-Dibley-His-Golden-Key/dp/1484181557/ M F Scotto

    The IRS is closed… except for a few “rogue” agents monitoring social media for such comments.

  • Tavern Keepers

    The last shutdown got us a balanced budget, welfare reform and exposed the president as a pig and a liar. If this shutdown is just half as successful I say it’s a win for America

    • Deborah Hallsted

      We can only dream.

  • RblDiver

    Give that man a piece of candy! Been loving his Twitter presence!

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      Candy Evans?

      • mike_in_kosovo

        lmao!!!

  • walterc

    Biggest fear of liberals is that the country will notice that the shut down government agencies are not missed. Like sequestration.

    If the IRS isn’t working today, who is going to covertly harass us? Oh yeah, I forgot that NSA is still on the job.

    I love James Woods.

  • Unicorns and Rainbows

    James Woods for President!

  • alanstorm

    Am I the only one who had to dodge hordes of rioters and roving cannibal bands on the way into work?

    • drw

      Umm, yeah, sorry, they were supposed to be in DC.

    • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

      Is that what that was? I just thought it meant Burning Man was in town.

    • Scorpion

      You must be new in Chicago.

    • stuckinIL4now

      I saw a giant inflated rat and some unionistas picketing a small construction work site being worked by non-unionistas. That rat was scary. /snarc

  • ELC

    James Woods is and always continues to be a patriot and my hero. He says what he means and means what her says.

  • The Jackal

    James Woods is the balls!

  • Magnifico

    Just for the hell of it, let’s shut down a trillion worth of gubment and see how it feels to live within our means.

  • jukin

    Several marks left…although not as big as old Vlad Putin’s.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    The Left spent the day asking how the sun could rise with the government shutdown.

    • ObamaFail

      They are also wondering how the sun will continue to rise come 2017 whenever Obama finally leaves office.

      • MNWoman

        All this while also worrying about global warming…er…climate change.

        • lucasb

          What the libs/dems need to worry about is how the Iranians and Russians are playing their fool hardy leader like a violin!

  • Mr_Wrestling_XIII

    James Woods deserves a high school named after him!

  • Bill Phillips

    James Woods is a Patriot! …so how many days will the government need to stay shut down to erase the federal debt?

  • stuckinIL4now

    “Captain Awesome @CaptinAwesum @RealJamesWoods It’s funny that all IRS offices are closed because they are nonessential.”
    Perhaps the truest words about today’s “shutnado” or “shutdown-pocalypse” or whatever you’re calling it today.

  • deano24

    I guess higher taxes made actor Rob Schneider changed his mind switching from a Democrat to a Republican.

  • http://xirtamatrix.com yourmamatoo

    Woods really needs to run for office.

  • michael s

    Too bad Woods doesn’t go after his conservative republican brother in IRS who admitted he started targeting fellow conservatives.Again you’re all for profiling when its other people,yet cry when you get profiled.

  • notenoughtime

    Each hour to ticks by reinforces the notion that government is not needed.

  • miltfarrow

    James Woods has got it right, The miscreants can’t even defend and “armed base” “Bastion” they lost 8 harrier jets and it cost us the lives of two of our brave men ( who should have never been there: while the Brits”sipped their tea and crumpets, The Alqueda ( I am now totally confused, how do we tell ( Mr President) which of the Alqueda we are supplying with weapons “are ours” and or which of them are the enemy? Can the drone operators distinguish between the two? When you analyze these facts, you will become to believe that Obama and his General Command have command over nothing, The whole fucking bunch should be charged with treason, conspiracy ( to kill our troops) and sedition long with war crimes a la` Nurenberg
    trials-Along with them- I want to see Congress and Scotus Impeached and dismissed as well as being charged by a grand jury of the people./

    I’ll tell you what happens – ABC, CBS and NBC still predict the end of the world ALL MORNING LONG and several sites are censoring comments that don’t slam the GOP- switching my email server today.

    And of course, Obama was on CNBC trying his best to create a stock market panic.
