Have you tried to go to a National Park or other institution of the federal government in the last two days? Are you a kid who's at home shrugging his shoulders as to where to go because your mom is at work and your federally funded daycare program is indefinitely closed? Perhaps you're a federal employee wondering what you'll do with all this awesome time off. You know, where you're not getting paid and don't know when you will again.
Welcome to the government shutdown! Our first one in 17 years. Yay! We did it! Nice job Washington. You guys can't figure out how to work together and now normal everyday people get to reap the benefits of that. Thanks old dudes!
We can't sit idly by as this goes on. Someone has to do something to spur these @ssholes into action. Believe it or not, The Soup doesn't have much political clout.
What we do have is Photoshop.
So, until this government shutdown is resolved we will publically Photoshop shame all responsible. Senators. Representatives. Lobbyists. Democrats and Republicans alike. It doesn't matter if you're Barack or Bachmann, do something for the people out here on the ground who count on you or be shamed with stupid Photoshops until you do.
Shaming #1 - Politicians in Shorts So Short You Can See Almost Everything.
Great look, Senator Harry Reid.
